Mesa, AZ — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Don Stapley (R-AZ) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Stapley is a candidate for U.S. House in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District.

"Don Stapley’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.

“Don 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."

"As a small business owner, I understand all too well the damaging impacts of ObamaCare," said Don Stapley. "Premiums are skyrocketing and options are dwindling. To unleash the true power of small business owners, Congress must finally repeal ObamaCare and replace it with a market-based approach."

"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 Stapley passes that test."

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