GOP lawmakers, candidates pledge to repeal healthcare legislation

Washington Post, March 18, 2010

Dozens of Republican lawmakers and candidates have signed a pledge to back an effort to repeal the pending healthcare reform measure should the GOP take control of either chamber of Congress after this fall's elections, the Washington Post reports. The "Repeal It" movement first won the backing of some of the most conservative Republicans in Congress, and has expanded to include some of the party's Senate candidates in liberal-leaning states such as New Hampshire and Illinois. In all, 37 House and Senate members and 163 congressional candidates have signed the pledge, the Post reports.
