Last week, the Arizona State Senate failed to pass SB 1167. The proposed bill would provide for a reduction in Arizona Gross income for retired veterans, at $2,500 through December 31, 2017, at $6,250 for the year 2018, and $10,000 beginning January 1, 2019. This bill would have given tax benefits to retired, honorably discharged veterans who work after their service. It is bad enough that many Democrats voted against it, as they want every penny they can get their hands on in government control. But THREE Republican State Senators made the bill fail by just one vote. They are: Kate Brophy McGee of District 28 around the Camelback/Scottsdale area, David Farnsworth of District 16 around Apache Junction, and Warren Petersen of District 12 around the Mesa area. Any one of these three so-called Republicans could have helped and thanked our retired veterans, but instead, sided with Democrats to defeat this bill.
I hope you who live in these Districts remember their names at election time and vote against them. They do not support veterans.
