Newnan, GA — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that State Sen. Mike Crane (R-GA) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Crane is a candidate for U.S. House in Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District.

"Mike Crane’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.

“Mike 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."

“I am grateful for the recognition and support from the Independent Women’s Voice organization," said Mike Crane. "ObamaCare is just another example of government overreach into the lives of American citizens. This program has been an epic failure on all accounts and we need to do whatever it takes to ensure that healthcare returns to its rightful place in the free market.”

"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, Mike Crane passes that test."

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