Middelton, WI — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Sen. Johnson represents the state of Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate.

"Sen. Ron Johnson’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.

“Sen. Johnson 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."

“ObamaCare has been a disaster for Wisconsin families, doctors, and small businesses,” said Sen. Ron Johnson. “It needs to be repealed so we can undo the damage it’s doing to health care and our economy, and it needs to be replaced with patient-centered, market-based reforms that would actually restrain the cost and improve the quality of health care.”

"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, Sen. Ron Johnson passes that test."

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