Omaha, NE — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Don Bacon (R-NE) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Bacon is a candidate for Congress in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional district.

"Don Bacon’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.”

“Don 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 is a liberal policy disaster that continues to hurt Nebraska families and small businesses," said Don Bacon. "The one size fits all, cookie cutter approach from Washington, D.C is not working. Individuals and families should have more options and be the primary voice with their own healthcare and that's why I'm in favor of repealing ObamaCare and instituting free-market reforms that reduce health care costs."

"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, Don Bacon passes that test."

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