Jane Corwin — Candidate for Congress in NY-26 Special Election — Signs The Repeal Pledge
Williamsville, NY----Jane Corwin, the conservative Republican congressional candidate in next week's special election, has signed the Repeal Pledge to undo ObamaCare. In doing so, Corwin becomes the only candidate in the special election to sign The Repeal Pledge.
"Jane Corwin's decision to take The Repeal Pledge shows voters that, when it comes to health care, she gets it -- she understands that ObamaCare’s individual mandate is an unconstitutional government infringement on our constitutional liberties, and she knows that if implemented, it will lead to moregovernment and less freedom, will place government bureaucrats between doctors and their patients, and will limit patients' choice and control," said Hadley Heath, health care policy analyst at Independent Women's Voice.
"Jane Corwin's signature on the Pledge indicates that if elected, she would do everything in her power to keep ObamaCare from adversely affecting the citizens of New York, such as encouraging New York to participate in the constitutional challenge to the law and supporting federal legislation like theSave Our States Act: Time-Out on Implementing ObamaCare,” added Heather Higgins, President & CEO of Independent Women’s Voice.
The Repeal Pledge advocates not just repeal, but defunding, deauthorizing, and dismantling the misleadingly-titled Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, passed in early 2010. 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.
Signers of the pledge believe that this law cannot be "fixed" and that stopping its implementation and ultimately repealing it are necessary first steps to ensure that citizens and their doctors, not government bureaucrats, have choice and control over their health care, and that medical care in our country becomes more affordable and available.
While the Repeal Pledge is designed for federal office holders, there is also a place for citizens to sign and express their solidarity with these principles.
