Brace yourself — right-wing extremists in Arizona have swung so far right, they’ve crossed into the Leftern nether regions.
Evidence is shown by Arizona state Rep. John Fillmore, R-Apache Junction, who just introduced a bill calling for the establishment of a state-run bank in Arizona. A state commission would operate the bank, which would be called The Bank of Arizona.
It’s hard to believe that HB 2221 actually exists. Arizona Republicans – whose platform stands on limited government, privatization and “don’t nobody mess with my privately-owned business not even taxes” – want to create a state-run bank.
During the election last year, Fillmore, who now wants a state-run bank, described himself as “an ardent small government conservative.”
