TEWKSBURY, NJ – (May 29, 2012) – Successful businessman and Right Direction Organization Chairman, David Larsen, today announced that he has signed The Repeal Pledge to undo ObamaCare, as he seeks the Republican nomination for U.S. Congress in New Jersey’s Seventh Congressional District.
"David Larsen’s decision to take The Repeal Pledge shows voters that, when it comes to health care, he gets it -- he understands that ObamaCare’s individual mandate is an unconstitutional government infringement on our constitutional liberties, and he knows that if implemented, it will lead to more government and less freedom, will place government bureaucrats between doctors and their patients, and will limit patients' choice and control," said 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.
“David Larsen’s signature on the Pledge indicates that if elected, he would do everything in his power to keep ObamaCare from adversely affecting the citizens of New Jersey,” added Hadley Heath, health care policy analyst at Independent Women's Voice.
As a businessman for over 35 years David Larsen knows the impact ObamaCare will have on our economy and constitutional freedoms. “Republicans were given back control of the House in 2010 to get rid of ObamaCare entirely and not try to modify it,” said David Larsen. “Worse yet, my opponent, Leonard Lance, actually voted to provide funds for its implementation!
Not only is this legislation a job killer, given the massive cost of health regulations, it is also an infringement on our personal liberties and freedom, and nothing short of complete repeal is acceptable!”
While the Repeal Pledge is designed for public office holders or those seeking public office, there is also a place for citizens to sign and express their solidarity with these principles.
