Washington, D.C. — Independent Women's Voice President and CEO Heather Higgins today thanked Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) for adding his name to the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge, demonstrating his commitment to seeing this harmful piece of legislation repealed.


"Congressman Pence has been a leading voice for the repeal of this harmful government take-over of health care," said Higgins.  "He understands the harm it will do to our medical system, how it will reduce individual choice and control, and insert government bureaucrats into private health care choices that should be left between doctors and patients."


"Today, Congressman Pence has demonstrated his full commitment to repeal of ObamaCare by signing The Repeal Pledge.  In doing so, he joins 51 other Congressional leaders who are committed to doing everything necessary to undo ObamaCare."


A full list of Repeal Pledge signers can be viewed online at www.TheRepealPledge.com.


"IWV's Repeal Pledge is different from other pledges as it commits the signers to not only voting for repeal, but also to taking all effective steps to defund, deauthorize and ultimately repeal ObamaCare," continued Higgins.


"Independent Women's Voice is happy to have Cong. Pence as an ally in this fight and we look forward to working with him to achieve the goal of full repeal of ObamaCare."
