FLORIDA VOTERS TO OBAMACARE: WE STILL DON’T LIKE IT OR THE CANDIDATES THAT SUPPORT IT
Independent Women's Voice Congratulates Brian Mast on FL-18 Victory
Washington, DC) – Responding to Brian Mast's victory in the race for Florida's 18th District Independent Women’s Voice (IWV) President and CEO Heather Higgins tonight issued the following statement:
“Five weeks ago, Bill Clinton said ObamaCare is ‘the craziest thing in the world’ and voters must agree.
“We’re pleased that Army veteran Brian Mast signed IWV’s ObamaCare Repeal Pledge to show his commitment to overturning this monstrosity, and we’re thrilled to congratulate Mast on his victory in Florida.
“Those who said ObamaCare no longer matters to voters are self-deluded. The more people experience its negative effects the more they dislike it—and rightly so.
“Independent Women’s Voice alerted the public that Mast had pledged to repeal ObamaCare before voters headed to the polls so they could make more informed decisions on the issue.
“The American people are tired of candidates who say one thing on the stump, then act differently when they get to DC. That’s why we’re glad to see IWV’s efforts to inform voters that Brian Mast is serious about repealing and reforming the law made a difference at the ballot box.
“ObamaCare has never been popular with the American people—whether in polls or at the ballot box. The ObamaCare Repeal Pledge was created as a trusted shorthand for candidates to show constituents their commitment to undoing this damaging law and creating a better system that helps all Americans. The power of this issue and this pledge was seen again tonight in Florida."
IWV advocates not just repeal, but defunding, deauthorizing, and dismantling the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This victory moves us one step closer to better health care in this country. Congratulations to Brian Mast!
