Why do the Republicans you elected distrust you?

On the Friday of Memorial Day weekend, about an hour before midnight, the Republicans who control the Arizona Legislature spat in the faces of the people who put them in office.

They passed on a party-line vote SB 1451, a bill designed to make it even more difficult for regular citizens to get an issue on the ballot.

Itís part of an ongoing effort to erode citizen participation in our democracy. And itís the strangest thing.

And it didnít go unnoticed, as Democratic Rep. Kelli Butler tweeted:

3. Republicans def don't trust Americans.

That's why they limit choices everywhere: reproductive rights, healthcare public option, voting rights, etc.

When Americans can choose, Republicans lose.
