Scottsdale, AZ — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Alex Meluskey has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Meluskey is a candidate for U.S. Senate from Arizona.

 "Alex Meluskey’s decision to take Pledge shows voters that, when it comes to health care, he gets it,” said Heather Higgins, President and CEO of Independent Women's Voice.

“Alex understands the harm that ObamaCare has already caused and will continue to cause if it's not turned back.  He recognizes that ObamaCare hurts seniors and increases costs for families.  Moreover, he knows that ObamaCare means bigger government and less freedom, places government bureaucrats between doctors and their patients, and reduces our choice and control in health care decisions."

"ObamaCare has harmed our economy and healthcare quality in America," said Alex Meluskey. "Mandating American citizens to purchase anything is not Constitutional, there our federal government created a loophole and passed the healthcare bill as a tax. I am a strong proponent of health care freedom, and will fight to repeal ObamaCare every day I’m in the U.S. Senate."

"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, Alex Meluskey passes that test."

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