WASHINGTON – The Club for Growth today launched Repeal It!, a campaign to repeal and replace any federal takeover of health care enacted this year.  The Repeal It! campaign (www.repealit.org, Twitter @RepealIt) will promote three pledges – one each for lawmakers, candidates, and citizens – to repeal ObamaCare.  Club President Chris Chocola announced the campaign as an opportunity for pro-growth conservatives to define the 2010 elections, seize the initiative in the ongoing health care debate, and help to defeat ObamaCare before it ever becomes law.

    “Opposing ObamaCare is no longer enough – the Democrats may still pass it,” Club President Chris Chocola said.  “The Repeal It! pledge sends the message that even if ObamaCare does pass, this fight won’t be over.  Part of defeating a health care takeover this year is pledging to repeal it, if necessary, next year.”

    “The House and Senate versions of ObamaCare represent the gravest threat to American prosperity in a generation,” Chocola said.  “Economic conservatives have worked for a year to prevent ObamaCare’s passage, but now citizens, candidates, and lawmakers also have to prepare for the next potential phase in this fight.”

    “Pro-growth conservatives’ best strategy now  is to pledge to undo this monstrosity if it ever becomes law, and only to support candidates who take that pledge,” Chocola said.  “Supporters and opponents of ObamaCare alike need to understand that this fight will not end with a presidential signing ceremony,” Chocola said.  “If liberals pass a health care takeover, the American people will repeal it, and then bring about real reforms that lower health care costs without growing government.”

The three pledges read:

CITIZENS: “I hereby pledge that if any federal health care takeover is passed in 2010, I will support - with my time, money, and vote - only candidates who pledge to support its repeal and replacement with real reforms that lower health care costs without growing government.”

LAWMAKERS: “I hereby pledge to the people of my state/district to sponsor and support legislation to repeal any federal health care takeover passed in 2010, and replace it with real reforms that lower health care costs without growing government.”

CANDIDATES: “I hereby pledge to the people of my state/district, upon my election to the House/Senate, to sponsor and support legislation to repeal any federal health care takeover passed in 2010, and replace it with real reforms that lower health care costs without growing government.”
