— Rep. Steve King (R-IA) in Politico, 12/30/11
Tomorrow, Iowa residents will take part in the state's first-in-the-nation caucuses, thus beginning the process of selecting the next President of the United States, as well as the members of the 113th Congress.
It will come as no surprise to you that we agree 100 percent with Congressman Steve King. ObamaCare must be the central issue of this election season — because ObamaCare hurts jobs and the economy, erodes our personal liberty, and not only impedes quality medical care but is a bold, bright marker for what a candidate sees as the proper role of government and what kind of future this country will have.
Never popular to begin with, ObamaCare continues to sink in the polls. The latest AP/GfK poll has only 29% in favor of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The latest Rasmussen poll has more than half the country — 53% — opposed to this noxious, liberty-robbing legislation.
It couldn't be more clear: Candidates that reflect the public's disgust with and complete rejection of ObamaCare will have no trouble finding a constituency.
The Repeal Pledge — our project to hold politicians accountable for their promises to voters — will play a key role helping voters to know who is serious about full and complete repeal of ObamaCare, and who is just paying lip service, trying to ride the wave of public dissatisfaction to an electoral victory.
Heading in to tomorrow's Iowa Caucuses, two candidates for President have signed The Repeal Pledge: Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. They have our thanks.
But we need all the candidates to sign so we know for sure where they stand.
Below are links to contact the campaigns of the candidates who have yet to sign the Presidential version of The Repeal Pledge. Can you take a few minutes today to send them an email or post on their Facebook page or Tweet at them to go to www.TheRepealPledge.com and sign the pledge today?
The road to electing a President who will sign the repeal of ObamaCare officially begins tomorrow in Iowa. Help us make REPEAL a REALITY in 2012.
