Andrew Roth - January 06th, 2011
KEY VOTE ALERT
“YES” on Repeal of ObamaCare (HR 2)
The Club for Growth urges all House members to vote “YES” on the full repeal of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” and the related reconciliation healthcare provisions (Public Laws 111-148 and 111-152). This proposal is expected to be considered next week. This vote will be included in the Club’s 2011 Congressional Scorecard.
As we wrote in an earlier key vote alert, 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 unconstitutional individual mandate to buy insurance, raises taxes, and massively increases the size of government.
Members who vote “NO” on HR 2 who also signed our Repeal It pledge will be considered in violation of that pledge.
Our Congressional Scorecard for the 112th 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.UPDATE: The House voted to repeal ObamaCare, 245-189, on January 19, 2011. The Club sent out a similar alert to the Senate on February 1, 2011. The Senate subsequently voted 47-51.
