    Sorry Jean. The facts don't support your position.

    Her platform in 2008 and her voting record / accomplishments as our representative are remarkably consistent. From Wikipedia:
    Kirkpatrick ran on a platform of tax cuts for 86 million middle-class families, making health care affordable and accessible to all, and encouraged renewable energy projects to end America's dependence on foreign energy and create jobs for rural Arizona. She supports increasing teacher salaries, expanding SCHIP, and adding a division to the army.
    Kirkatrick opposed the Stupak Amendment restricting federal funding for abortions but voted in favor of the Affordable Health Care for America Act, which included the provision, on November 7, 2009. She voted for the Senate version of the health care bill in March 2010.
    She supported the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. She opposed the American Clean Energy and Security Act which, among other things, established a cap and trade system.
    On behalf of Veterans, she has proposed 7 bills and successfully passed 5 bills during her short tenure, including H.R. 2879, which closes a donut hole for terminally ill veterans service members who want to collect their life insurance, and H.R. 3553, which removes disability payments as consideration of income under means-tested housing assistance.
    Kirkpatrick has been actively trying to decrease the National debt. She was featured on Fox News for sponsoring bill H.R. 4720, Taking Responsibility for Congressional Pay Act, to lower the salaries of Congressional members.

    I intend to vote YES for Arizona's future by voting YES for Ann Kirpatrick.

    I, and most others, intend to cancel sue dinghams vote and vote NO for ann kirkpatrick.

    lower taxes, less spending, small government and a secure border is where my vote shall be going.

    I, intend to vote FOR Ann Kirkpatrick because she accomplished more for the people in her 2 years term than did Republican Gosar.

    Lowering taxes to the rich and cutting benefits to seniors,veterans and the poor to pay for them will automatically get my No vote.

    She was voted out for a reason. She walked out on her constituents, gave away tax payer money, she doesn't deserve a second chance, another two years is to much to invest on her...
