DEBT CEILING COVERAGE: Arizona Delegation Updates, Sat./Sun.

I will try to post 'em as I can find 'em - but, if you have any that you would like to see included, please shoot me an e-mail at

Kyl, Jon (R-AZ):  Arizona's junior Senator delivered the Republican's  weekly response this morning (Saturday).  He delivered a speech blaming President Obama for not understanding that this is an "opportunity" to "rein in spending".  ("President Obama is simply too committed to the European style of big government that his policies have set in motion."  "...raise taxes and keep on spending.")
McCain, John (R-AZ): Arizona's senior Senator sat down with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren last night. He repeats his softened criticism of those Republicans who have been holding out for a balanced budget amendment.  "Let's be honest with the American people. We have to have a balanced budget amendment.... But, I have to be honest with my constituents and tell them that this Senate is not going to pass it, but we can't give up the fight."

Here's a good article in today's Arizona Republic, from Dan Nowicki and Erin Kelly, with comments from many in the Arizona delegation, including the oft-ignored House Democrats (Pastor and Grijalva).

We welcome your comments about this post. Or, if you have something unrelated on your mind, please e-mail to info-at-arizonaspolitics-dot-com. Thanks.
