Dr. Dickerson has the right prescription for Tennessee
NASHVILLE, TN.- Dr. Steve Dickerson, the Republican candidate for the State Senate in District 20, is stressing the importance of having a doctor in the Tennessee State Senate after the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare.
“I think it is more important than ever to have someone who is familiar with how the healthcare industry works in the State Senate after the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Obamacare,” said Dickerson. “Ultimately, I disagree with ruling, but now we have to step up and deal with the consequences that will affect our state.”
The outcome of the Affordable Health Care Act will affect the state in multiple ways. This unfunded mandate will also cost the state valuable tax payer dollars that could be better used to reform education, bring new job growth to Tennessee, improve transportation and other important projects that are valuable to Tennesseans. It will also prevent lawmakers from being able to continue to lower taxes in the General Assembly.
“Republicans in Congress should continue to try to repeal Obamacare in its entirety and replace it with market-based health care policies that will improve quality and bring down costs.” Dickerson continued, “It is time to pass responsible healthcare reform that will truly help all Tennesseans.”
Steve Dickerson is a practicing physician and founding partner of Anesthesia Services Associates. Dickerson attended the University of the South in Sewanee graduating with a B.A. in History. He then received his medical degree at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University. Steve Dickerson has been married to his wife Katrina for 19 years and they have three sons, Reid, Evan, and Bennett.
