Congressman Neal Dunn

Representing the 2nd District of Florida

Health

Having worked as a doctor in both the U.S. Army and the 2nd District for over 30 years, I know firsthand how important the relationship is between doctors and their patients. That’s why I continue to support full repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Bureaucrats in Washington shouldn’t be making important decisions about your health care, you should.

Over the last several years, we have seen how detrimental the Affordable Care Act has been on this country. It has kicked millions of Americans off their insurance plans, sky-rocketed their insurance costs, and limited their choice in choosing the doctors they like. Hardworking Americans across the country are forced to spend more on their health care. We need patient-centered reforms that actually lowers costs and expands access for all.

I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress to fully repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with a common-sense, patient-centered health care law that will decrease skyrocketing insurance costs, while improving the quality of care.
