Several Republican senators commented on healthcare and education funding as it relates to how to address the budget shortfall during the Primer on Education Finance held at the Arizona Capitol on January 13.
"Republicans want to take healthcare and kindergarten from Arizona's children," said Sen. Jorge Garcia. "We need to continue to look for ways to address the deficit without shortchanging children and families."
The video below and the one in the following post show two examples of these comments.
In the first video, Sen. Sylvia Allen suggests that education funding could not be increased without cutting AHCCCS, the state's Medicaid program, to the bone.
