Washington D.C.- Congressman Steve King (R-IA) announced today that former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich, has endorsed King’s legislation, H.R. 4972, which seeks to fully repeal Obamacare. Speaker Gingrich issued his endorsement of King’s efforts in “The Newt Gingrich Letter”, a weekly e-mail newsletter sent to over 700,000 subscribers nationwide. In the newsletter, Speaker Gingrich described King’s Obamacare repeal bill as “the most practical solution to repeal Obamacare” and urged his readers to contact their Member of Congress to request they sign Congressman King’s discharge petition #11. Once 218 signatures are collected, discharge petition #11 would force a vote on King’s Obamacare repeal bill which could not be blocked by Speaker Pelosi. The discharge petition has been signed by 170 members to date.
“Speaker Gingrich’s endorsement of both H.R. 4972 and discharge petition #11 is a clear sign that this is the strategy Obamacare opponents should use to achieve 100% repeal,” said King. “Speaker Gingrich understands the hurdles that repeal supporters face, as well as the best ways to overcome them. His endorsement of my legislation as ‘the most practical solution to repeal Obamacare’ should resonate loudly with the American people and send a message to those who have not yet signed on to the discharge petition.”
