8th District Candidate will fight to undo federal health care takeover
MACON, GA- Republican Candidate for Congress Angela Hicks today announced she has signed the Club for Growth’s “Repeal It” pledge. Hicks signed the pledge on the day following a final vote on the House of Representative’s massive health care reform bill over the objections of the American people.
“The people of the 8th District deserved more than just a vote against this health care legislation. We needed a representative that would stand up and fight against it,” said Angela Hicks. “Now, our only option is to elect a new majority to Congress that will undo this overreaching, job-killing legislation. I pledge that I will not only work to overturn this health care disaster but also to present free-market solutions that will truly reform the system.”
The pledge can be found at www.repealit.org, and the text of the pledge follows:
I hereby pledge to the people of my district upon my election to the U.S. House of Representatives/U.S. 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.Hicks continues to emerge as a solid conservative voice for Republicans in the 8th District. In addition to a growing grassroots network, Hicks has earned the support of State Senator Ross Tolleson, her campaign’s Honorary Chairman, State Representative Allen Peake, and two previous Republican nominees from Middle Georgia, General Rick Goddard and Calder Clay.
