Harrison Township, MI — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Tony Forlini (R-MI) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Forlini is a candidate for Congress from Michigan’s 10th Congressional district.

“Tony Forlini'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 Higgins, President and CEO of Independent Women's Voice.

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 For these reasons, and many more, it must be repealed.”

“I am an insurance agent as part of my financial planning practice, so I‘ve seen firsthand the damage ObamaCare has done to our health care system," said Tony Forlini.  "It is not the answer. It created more bureaucracy on top of higher costs. Marketplace healthcare reforms is a better answer to the quality and affordability Americans expect.”

"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, Tony Forlini passes that test."

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