MINNESOTA VOTERS TO OBAMACARE: WE STILL DON’T LIKE IT OR THE CANDIDATES THAT SUPPORT IT
Independent Women's Voice Congratulates Jason Lewis on Victory
Washington, DC) – Responding to Jason Lewis' victory in the race for Minnesota's 2nd Congressional 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 Jason Lewis signed IWV’s ObamaCare Repeal Pledge to show his commitment to overturning this monstrosity, and we’re thrilled to congratulate Lewis on his victory in Minnesota.
“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 Jason Lewis had pledged to repeal ObamaCare before voters headed to the polls so they could make more informated 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 Lewis is series about repealing and reforming the law make a difference at the ballot box.
“ObamaCare has never been popular with the American people. 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 Minnesota."
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 and welcome to Washington Jason Lewis!
