The organizers of the Senate Conservatives Fund, chaired by South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint, have started a “Repeal ObamaCare Petition”—an effort aimed at erasing the debacle Congress has created through its health care measures.
As of now, there are over 25,000 pledges recorded on the organization’s Web Site. Those who pledge promise to strictly support congressional candidates that vow to repeal Obamacare. “Electing just any Republican is not the answer,” says the Web site’s home page. “We’ve seen what happens when we send people to Washington who don’t truly believe in the principles of freedom.”
Similarly, Erick Erickson of redstate.com recently endorsed congressional candidates he believes are willing to take up the fight against nationalized health care. Among his picks are Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), Danny Tarkanian (R-Nev.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
Of course, in order to get rid of Obamacare, legislators must have a bill. “The battle for health care freedom is not over and I will introduce legislation this week to repeal this health care takeover,” said Sen. DeMint according to a statement released on his Web site.
Also introducing legislation shortly is Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa). “Today the work begins to repeal Obamacare and restore the principles of liberty that made America a great nation,” said King in a statement posted on his Web site along with the text of his bill.
