Campaign Against ‘ObamaCare’ Marks Signature Milestone
June 14, 2010 by Special To Personal Liberty
Revere America has been on the road for several weeks, gathering signatures to help repeal the healthcare reform, and it has provided periodic updates on its successes.
The organization, which works to advance public policies rooted in freedom and free markets and is run by former New York governor George Pataki, launched the campaign in Boston on April 18.
Earlier this week, it announced that it has collected more than 125,000 signatures from Americans in all 50 states who want to overturn the reform passed by the Democrat-dominated Congress and signed into law by President Obama in late March.
"In March, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) proclaimed that Congress needed to pass ObamaCare so the American people could find out what was in the legislation," Pataki said.
He added that "the more people find out, the more they oppose the national takeover of healthcare. That’s why 63 percent of likely voters want the law repealed. And it’s why Revere America’s petition to repeal and replace ObamaCare has so quickly gained unprecedented traction in all 50 states."
The campaign’s goal is to collect 1 million signatures and deliver them to politicians in Washington, D.C.
