Brunswick, ME — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Mark Holbrook (R-ME) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Holbrook is a candidate for U.S. House from Maine’s 1st Congressional district.

“Mark Holbrook’s signature on the Pledge is a clear demonstration of his commitment to the full and complete repeal of ObamaCare and to end the harm that it is inflicting upon American families,” said Heather R. Higgins, President and CEO of Independent Women's Voice.

“Mark understands that ObamaCare is hiking insurance premiums, diminishing quality of care, and reducing our choice and control in health care decisions,” added Higgins. “He understands that ObamaCare means bigger government and less freedom. For these reasons, and many more, it must be repealed.”

“The Affordable Care Act has been a heart-breaking, abject failure," said Mark Holbrook. "So painful and unfair to our citizens, particularly to the poor. After millions of dollars, the website is still a mess. Our government has lied to us, care is down, rates and deductibles are up. You can't keep your healthcare OR your doctor! This is crushing jobs and our economy."

"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," continued Higgins.  "With this commitment, Mark Holbrook passes that test."

The Repeal Pledge is a project of Independent Women's Voice, a 501(c)(4) nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
