Dunwoody, GA — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Bruce LeVell (R-GA) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. LeVell is a candidate for Congress in the special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional district.
“Bruce LeVell signature on the Pledge is a clear demonstration of his commitment to the full and complete repeal of ObamaCare and to end the harm that it is inflicting upon American families,” said Heather R. Higgins, President and CEO of Independent Women's Voice.
“Bruce understands that ObamaCare is hiking insurance premiums, diminishing quality of care, and reducing our choice and control in health care decisions,” added Higgins. “He understands that ObamaCare means bigger government and less freedom. For these reasons, and many more, it must be repealed.”
"I have been a small businessman for over 25 years," said LeVell. "I experienced firsthand the disaster of ObamaCare. The rise in healthcare premiums prevented me from hiring new employees or giving my existing employees the pay raises they deserved. This damaged my business' ability to expand and remain competitive. In addition, my family's healthcare premiums went from $900 per month to over $1600 per month. This hurt my family. In short, my business costs and personal costs skyrocketed due to this bill.”
"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, Bruce LeVell passes that test."
The Repeal Pledge is a project of Independent Women's Voice, a 501(c)(4) nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
