Washington, D.C. — Independent Women's Voice President and CEO Heather Higgins today expressed her thanks and gratitude to Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) for fully committing to repeal of ObamaCare and signing The Repeal Pledge.


"Sen. Rand Paul was swept into office on a promise to fight back against the expansion of government power that is endemic to ObamaCare," said Higgins.  "Since his election, Sen. Paul has been a tireless advocate for healthcare freedom and for undoing this government take-over of our healthcare decisions, this nightmare that is ObamaCare.  We are thrilled he has added his name to The Repeal Pledge."


"In signing, Sen. Paul joins 50 other members of Congress who have demonstrated their commitment to doing all they can do to see that ObamaCare is defunded, deauthorized, and ultimately repealed."

"IWV's Repeal Pledge is different form other pledges as it commits the signers to not only voting for repeal, but also taking all necessary steps to slow and stop the implementation of this harmful, unconstitutional and vastly unpopular health care law," continued Higgins.


"We looking forward to working with Sen. Rand Paul and the rest of the Repeal Pledge coalition as the fight to repeal ObamaCare and bring choice and freedom to our health care decisions marches on."
