Independence Hall Tea Party happy with health care repeal vote

    The Independence Hall Tea Party has released a statement about yesterday’s vote to repeal health care reform, congratulating those who voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

    The House voted 245-189 to repeal the measure. Association President Teri Adams says the group has a three-pronged approach to challenge the law in the U.S. Congress, federal courts and state legislatures.

    “If we are to defeat ObamaCare in Congress, we must elect a new president who would be committed to signing a repeal bill,” Adams said in the release. “Given the fact that Tea Partiers were extremely  instrumental in taking back the House in the 2010 mid-term elections, it’s very conceivable that we could win the White House in 2012.”

    The Independence Hall Tea Party represents Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
