Alpharetta, GA — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Karen Handel (R-GA) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Handel is a candidate in the special election for U.S. House from Georgia’s 6th Congressional district.
“Karen Handel’s signature on the Pledge is a clear demonstration of her 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.

“Karen understands that ObamaCare is hiking insurance premiums, diminishing quality of care, and reducing our choice and control in health care decisions,” added Higgins. “She understands that ObamaCare means bigger government and less freedom. For these reasons, and many more, it must be repealed.”

"ObamaCare is the single biggest intrusion into the lives of Americans in decades," said Karen Handel. "Healthcare costs and insurance premiums have skyrocketed. ObamaCare must be repealed and replaced with market-based, patient-centered reforms. I remain committed to repealing and replacing ObamaCare before it collapses. I believe Congress will pass a plan that Tom Price can implement that will provide patient centered care at lower costs."
"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, Karen Handel passes that test."
The Repeal Pledge is a project of Independent Women's Voice, a 501(c)(4) nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
