Sinema, Brewer anxious for Obama visit

Arizona Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema hopes President Obama will listen to Arizona families during his visit to Desert Vista High in Ahwatukee. President Obama is set to address local residents on the topic of homeownership.

”I am glad to see that President Obama recognizes the challenges Arizona homeowners face. I hope he will listen closely to what families in our community say and offer concrete and commonsense proposals to ensure families can realize the American dream of homeownership,” said Sinema in a statement released Monday.

“Homeowners in Ahwatukee, Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Scottsdale and other communities across Arizona have weathered a tough storm since the collapse of the housing bubble and the significant stress to our national financial system,” continued Sinema. “Since then, too many hardworking families have lost their homes.”

Arizona’s Governor Brewer will meet the President on the tarmac according to Brewer’s spokesman, Andrew Wilder. She will not be wagging her finger at him this time around. Now that she has carried the water for the Obama administration in her push for Medicaid expansion, she intends to ask the President about the status of Arizona’s request that the Yarnell Hill fire area be declared a federal disaster, according to the Arizona Republic.


  1. Sounds like just another photo-op for all involved. After all, there’s an election year in 2014.
