WASHINGTON – News that a discharge petition in the House of Representatives has gathered half the names necessary to force a vote repealing Obamacare has spurred an online petition campaign to rally the public to the cause.

"Who would have thought we might have a chance to repeal Obamacare – this term?" exclaimed Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, in response to the plan by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. "This movement has already gained half the support it needs in the House of Representatives. Now it's time for the public to turn up the pressure on the other half."

Farah has created a public petition drive in support of King's measure. He hopes to use the database of new names to launch a massive new "pink slips"–style campaign to persuade 218 House members to get on board.
