KEY VOTE ALERT
“YES” on ObamaCare Repeal (HR 596)
The Club for Growth urges all House members to vote “YES” on HR 596, a bill that would repeal ObamaCare and set up a process to implement free market reforms. A vote is expected later this week. This vote will be included in the Club’s 2015 Congressional Scorecard.
As we have written in previous key vote alerts, this healthcare law betrays the principles of limited government and individual liberty that our Founding Fathers relied on when they crafted the Constitution. It hinders growth, includes an unprecedented individual mandate to buy insurance, raises taxes, and massively increases the size of government.
Also, we urge Congress to repeal ObamaCare through the reconciliation process, thus increasing the chances of the bill reaching President Obama’s desk. Accordingly, we will weigh repeal of ObamaCare as part of the reconciliation process far more heavily than the bill being considered this week.
Our Congressional Scorecard for the 114th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
