Update: SB 1405

Committee Takes SB 1405 Off the Table

Yes. This monstrosity needs to be stomped into the ground and buried forever.

The piece made a point I hadn't thought of.

Doctors envisioned scenarios in which immigrants with contagious diseases such as tuberculosis would stay home from the clinic or hospital and put themselves and the public at a grave health risk.

Well, duh. Let's put an entire population at risk just to satisfy Russell Pearce and his rabid teatwit ideas. Not to mention the possibility of people dying because they're afraid to get health care.

Once again, Arizona supposedly hates federal mandates but sure doesn't balk at imposing mandates of their own.

By the way, don't read the comments to this article. They're vile.
