Statement on Failed ACA Repeal Vote

Washington, DC -- Doctors for America issued the following statement after the failed US Senate vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act. 

Statement from Doctors for America Chair Scott Poppen, MD:

“Doctors and medical students thank Senators McCain, Murkowski and Collins for coming together with all Democrats and Independents to put patients over politics. It’s clear these Senators heard from the patients across the country who are finally getting the care they need, thanks to the Affordable Care Act. It’s time for Congress and the Administration to put aside their partisan rhetoric and work across the aisle to improve the ACA and strengthen care for patients across the country. It’s time for patients over politics”



Doctors for America mobilizes doctors and medical students across medical specialties in all 50 states to be leaders in putting patients over politics on the pressing issues of the day to improve the health of our patients, communities, and nation.
