Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has signed The Repeal Pledge to undo ObamaCare.
"Mitt Romney’s decision to put pen to paper and sign The ObamaCare Repeal Pledge shows voters that, when it comes to health care, he gets it,” said Heather Higgins, President & CEO of Independent Women’s Voice. “He understands that ObamaCare represents a government infringement on our constitutional liberties, and he knows that if implemented, it will lead to more government and less freedom, will place government bureaucrats between doctors and their patients, and will limit patients' choice and control.”
“Because Mitt Romney has signed the Pledge he has sent a clear message to voters that, as President, he will sign the full and complete repeal of this government take-over of our private health care decisions,” Higgins added.
The Repeal Pledge advocates not just repeal, but defunding, deauthorizing, and dismantling the misleadingly-titled Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, passed in early 2010. The Repeal Pledge was designed as a litmus test to help the American public understand which candidates and office holders are serious about repeal, versus those who claim to be but won't actually take action.
Signers of the Repeal Pledge believe that this law cannot be "fixed" and that stopping its implementation and ultimately repealing it are necessary first steps to ensure that citizens and their doctors, not government bureaucrats, have choice and control over their health care, and that medical care in our country becomes more affordable and available.
While the Repeal Pledge is designed for public office holders or those seeking public office, there is also a place for citizens to sign and express their solidarity with these principles.
