Bradenton, FL — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Carlos Beruff (R-FL) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Beruff is a candidate for U.S. Senate in Florida.

"Carlos Beruff’s decision to take Pledge shows he gets it when it comes to health care,” said Heather R. Higgins, President and CEO of Independent Women's Voice. “This clearly demonstrates to voters his commitment to the full and complete repeal of ObamaCare.”

“Carlos understands the harm that ObamaCare has already caused through increased premiums and costs, and a decreasing quality of care,” added Higgins. “ObamaCare means bigger government. It means less freedom. It means people have less choice and control in their health care decisions. And all of this will continue to grow worse if ObamaCare isn’t turned back.”

"ObamaCare has been a complete and total disaster," said Carlos Beruff. "It is strangling our small businesses with unnecessary regulations and hurting middle class Floridians with higher premiums. It must be fully repealed and fully replaced with a free market system that emphasizes competition. ObamaCare is just another egregious example of federal overreach, and it needs to be done away with for good."

"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, Carlos Beruff passes that test."

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