KENTUCKY VOTERS TO OBAMACARE: WE STILL DON’T LIKE IT OR THE CANDIDATES THAT SUPPORT IT
Independent Women's Voice Congratulates Rep. Andy Barr on Reelection Victory
Washington, DC) – Responding to Rep. Andy Barr's victory in the race for reelection to Kentucky's 6th 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 Congressman Andy Barr signed IWV’s ObamaCare Repeal Pledge to show his commitment to overturning this monstrosity, and we’re thrilled to congratulate Barr on his victory in Kentucky.
“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.
“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 the Repeal Pledge matters to voters, and why candidates who support real reform, like Rep. Barr, sign the Repeal Pledge.
“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 Kentucky."
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 Rep. Andy Barr!
