Jupiter, FL — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Rick Kozell (R-FL) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Kozell is a candidate for U.S. House from Florida’s 18th Congressional district.

“Rick Kozell’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.

“Rick 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 For these reasons, and many more, it must be repealed.”

"ObamaCare is crushing small businesses and working families, and it is driving up health care premiums for too many Americans," said Rick Kozell. "It must be repealed immediately. As a former small business owner, I have seen the impact of crushing government regulations and Obamacare is just another federal regulatory scheme that is threatening the American Dream."

"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, Rick Kozell passes that test."

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