The Governor has a day job but by the sounds of it might be a convincing pastor after she's done running the state. Brewer went to Gilbert last night to participate in the East Valley Bible Church's weekly meeting that is open to the public. In case anyone was wondering how serious Brewer was, or if she knew what she was risking, the following quote is pretty telling.
"It sure doesn't help my career," she said, speaking to a near-full house Thursday night. "It's not an easy thing, but it has to be done."
Where the prayers are being answered comes later in the article. The reporter surveyed and got quotes from a few people and it looked like after hearing what Brewer had to say, they understood and were more open to a tax increase. This is probably why many of the hard right conservatives are adamant about not letting it go to a vote. When the information gets out and the severity of the problem is presented, people seem to understand and be more open to a temporary tax. The polling data seems to show that and now that's a main argument by those most opposed by it. I guess we don't know what's best for us or what we really want.
