Grassroots Group Vows "Full and Final Repeal" after Court Decision

The head of the grassroots campaign that delivered 1.6 million petitions to repeal the healthcare act over the past year said this week that TV ads would begin immediately to rally Americans to force legislative repeal of ObamaCare.

"We will be sending millions of petitions, voice mails and phone calls into Senate offices to make the point that we want this law erased," said Ken Hoagland, Chairman of Restore America's Voice Foundation.

"The Court threaded a Constitutional needle in redefining the individual mandate as a federal tax. It's disappointing but not the final recourse for the American people. Now it is time for the legislature to do its job representing the will of the American people for full and final repeal of this ill-considered legislation," said Hoagland.

"The public has seen through the false promises, is indignant that political friends were given waivers and understands that the 'Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act' neither protect patients nor controls costs," said Hoagland. New ads, said Hoagland, would make the point that Senate Democrats were standing in the way of majority opinion about the sweeping law.

"It must be repealed in its entirety or Senate Democrats will have to go home and explain their flawed definition of faithful representation. If they won't represent the will of the people, then how have they earned the right to serve?" asked Hoagland.

Hoagland's group presented 560,000 petitions the day before the House voted for full repeal last year and another 1.6 million petitions to the Senate earlier this year.

Ken Hoagland is chairman of and Restore America's Voice Foundation. RepealitNow Television ads have resulted in more than 2.3 million petitions demanding repeal of ObamaCare. Of those petitions 535,000 were delivered to House members the day before the House of Representatives voted to repeal ObamaCare and 1.6 million petitions were delivered in October 2011 to Senate and House Members.
