Bloomington, IN — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Rep. Todd Young (R-IN) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Young is a candidate for U.S. Senate from Indiana, and currently represents Indiana’s 9th Congressional district.
"Rep. Todd Young’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.”
“Todd 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 disaster, and I have voted to repeal it at every opportunity — it is a job destroying machine that imposes huge costs on consumers and American businesses," said Rep. Young. "We need to repeal ObamaCare with market driven solutions that drive down costs by empowering Americans to make their own health care choices."
"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, Rep. Todd Young passes that test."
The Repeal Pledge is a project of Independent Women's Voice, a 501(c)(4) nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
