National Federation of Republican Women Disappointed
by U.S. Supreme Court's Ruling On Healthcare
Looks to Romney, Republicans to Repeal Overreaching Law, Enact Real Reform
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Rae Lynne Chornenky,
president of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW),
issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on President Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
“The National Federation of Republican Women is extremely disappointed that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Obama's healthcare law, particularly the individual mandate provision. The only way to reverse course and repeal this overreaching, unprecedented, burdensome law is to elect a Republican president and Republicans to the U.S. Congress this November.
“Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has pledged that, if elected, he will immediately work to repeal Obamacare and to enact real healthcare reform. Americans don't want a one-size-fits-all big government system dictated by government bureaucrats. They want common sense reform based on the free market -- reform that increases choice and access, while keeping costs low.
“The final chapter on Obamacare has yet to be written. Voters have the opportunity to send a clear message to Washington this fall, and the NFRW and its members will be working between now and Election Day to ensure that today's ruling is just a footnote, and not the grand finale.”
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of
active members in local clubs across the nation and in several
U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political
organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works
to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican
Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through
political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness
of women in the cause of good government.
