Governor Ducey, Hacienda Healthcare, Arizona discussed on Mac and Gaydos


And we're gonna we're gonna ask her why she's against Trump's declaration the emergency on the border. I think she feels that congress did its job gave the president some money, and it should stop there. So we'll ask cinema about that. Coming up in fifteen minutes now, yesterday, Arizona governor Doug Ducey was in studio for his monthly exclusive interview with MAC and Gaydos, and he told us something about hacienda healthcare, obviously a woman. Incapacitated state raped gave birth. Nobody knew about it. And they've already arrested this pig who assaulted her should the facility stay open. And the governor told us something that we hadn't heard, and we're going to let you listen to that right here. We pick up the interview with the governor talking about hacienda. Take a listen hacienda healthcare. Why is the state is insisting on keeping it open? When when we look at it man from top to bottom, there were major problems. Do you want it shut down? Do you want the state to keep it open? There are major problems at hacienda health care. The reason we wanna keep it openness because our first concern is the care of the people inside hacienda healthcare. Some of them are incredibly developmentally disabled, and they've been there since they were three years old. Now twenty seven years old this this is their home. So what we want to make certain is that we've got the proper oversight from the state that they bring in a new management group that the board is replaced, but our care first and foremost is for the people that are inside how she end and we've also been communicating with their families. They do not want to move their loved ones. They want to have good care inside hoc- deal after what happened still after what happened. We're talking about the people that are oftentimes Gaydos in such a fragile situation. And like, I said this has been their home. They've lived there for decades that they would rather just see the proper care and oversight. And that's something that the state is going to continue to be as aggressive as possible. I just wonder if it is broken and cannot be fixed from the top down in so many stories about cover ups and don't tell us if a patient is ill. And if you do that, we'll pay you a bonus the CEO. I'd love to get a hold of the CEO and put them on the air because he's as cowardly as anybody. I've ever I've ever seen running away from the situation. Just to me, it seems broken. And I totally get what you're saying. It is their home. But could there be a better home for them? Move them into somewhere that is not corrupt from top to bottom is broken. And that's why I want to fire the senior management and remove the board. I think we've got good hardworking employee in there. That want to do the right thing. But this has just been terrible leadership terrible management and terrible oversight. And so that's my first preference. Of course, we have other options, but we've been working directly with the families to try to accommodate them. And what their needs are with the care. I for the patients. All right. That was governor Ducey with us yesterday about hacienda healthcare should the families have a say, I mean, I think the answer is. Yes. Yeah. You just can't kick the family mills street. But should they have a say, I mean, there are they close to it. You know, they have their loved one in the facility. It's hard to move them out. Right. There's not a lot of facilities like this. I mean, that's the other problem too. And let's wait until the investigation. Remember that investigation is still going on. Let's find out the whole scope of what's happened. So I like ducey's approach. Let's find out. I want the top people gone. But I know they're good people that work there. But I shut the place down yesterday. Right. Those people we got to find a place in there are places out there. It's just not easy. The other thing we talked to the governor about yesterday. You know, these legislators in the legend, your elected, political heroes. Yeah. You know, the the the the legislative immunity, remember Paul Moseley what ninety seven hundred fifty five. He's like, hey, look, I get it. It it seems that this Bill. To get rid of the alleged immunity is dead. It didn't go anywhere. We'll get out of committee. Here's what the governor had to say about that. We'll pick it up with you here MAC. It looks like nothing is going to happen with this Bill. I just don't understand why. Well, I take that back. I do understand. Why are you disappointed? It's not going to be repealed. And are you going to speak to somebody down at the legislature going come on this is an antiquated law? It doesn't need to be on the books and people are outraged by it. I don't think anybody in Arizona is above the law, especially the people that that make the laws myself included, it's early in the legislative session. What I wanted to do was say, I think we already have too many laws, and too many regulations on the books, and if we can put sunsets or repeal things that are unnecessary are chaotic or outdated. Let's get rid of them. And I don't think that we need legislative immunity. Have you spoke have you spoke to Representative Bowers? I speak to the speaker. Of course. The president of the Senate, and and all the members I want to be accessible as governor and really every legislative session every budget is a negotiation. I get to set a table and showing a gender in my state of the state, and these are some things that I think are important and things I think also that the citizens would see as important, but see the house speaker told the Arizona Republic that he doesn't like the governor coming here in our house and telling lawmakers that they need new rules of you need to repeal rules. What is this guy? What are we missing that? This guy is saying we don't need to change this. It's outrageous. We already know that we know that people are abusing it. Well, the first law that I passed MAC was the American civics act. And if you look at that act, it'll tell you that the legislature is a separate and Coequal branch. That's the respect I show those guys and I'd been able to work with them. But some of them if you look at the video tape of that when I announced let's get rid of legislative immunity somewhere enthusiastic about it. And someone we're not. So what we'll see. But we're going to do our best on this going. Knock some heads down there. Yeah. You need to crack skulls. That's what I'm talk. Yeah. Okay. That was a piece of yesterday's interview. With governor Doug Ducey, our monthly exclusive. I don't know if he's going to go down there and crack skulls, but you know, these guys disappointed at the legislature. They want to get out of free jail card because you know, if they go out and booze it up they wanna they wanna be able to not go to jail for that. Right. They want some kind of immunity and they want to be treated differently. But then don't bring it up in a Bill and then make it go nowhere, not even out of committee. You know, just say we're going to keep it. Don't play with us as as a as a voter bloc. Don't say, well, we need to get rid of this. And then you don't do anything about this needs to be on the ballot in twenty twenty and devote. Absolutely. Absolutely. They don't get it. You get out of jail free card. They don't deserve it. They haven't earned it. They're no better than anybody else. And they like to flaunt it yet. And they've proven that. All right coming up next Senator Kirsten cinema. She says President Trump's emergency declaration a harmful effect on Arizona's we're gonna ask her how when she joins us for her monthly exclusive interview next.
