The Repeal Pledge
(Presidential Candidate Version)
I pledge, if elected, to sign all bills which seek to REPEAL the health care bill, HR 3590, signed into law on March 23, 2010.*
To that end, I would now and will for the duration of my presidency, promote and sign all measures leading to its defunding, deauthorization, and repeal.
I shall do so whether those measures are taken for the whole of the bill or those component parts that impose mandates, restrict patient and doctor choice and access, violate individual freedom and privacy, reduce healthy competition, increase costs, or raise taxes.
*The healthcare bill is defined as consisting of: 1) The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590), signed into law on March 23, 2010; and 2) The Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (H.R. 4872), signed into law on March 30, 2010.
**The Repeal Pledge’s Advisory Board, recognizing the tactic of attaching poison pills to otherwise qualifying legislation, will determine which legislative efforts are legitimate for the purpose of this pledge.
