Jeffersonville, IN — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Trey Hollingsworth (R-IN) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Hollingsworth is a candidate for Congress in Indiana’s 9th Congressional district.

"Trey Hollingsworth’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.”

“Trey 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.”

“Premiums continue to climb and coverage continues to narrow because government is never the most efficient, effective, or innovative provider of any service,” said Trey Hollingsworth. “The most-sustainable answer to affordable and effective health care and health insurance is a vigorous, competitive marketplace, which is why I have signed the Repeal Pledge and I encourage my opponent to do the same.”

"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, Trey Hollingsworth passes that test."

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