PETAL, Miss. - Congressman Steven Palazzo spent the afternoon in the Pine Belt with the Petal Rotary Club.

Palazzo said his main focus right now is fighting the affordable care act, according to him it's disastrous.

"I've been preaching that for the past three years and its getting worse and worse," he said.

He said his constituents are very concerned about the new law. Palazzo so says some have already seen the affects.

"They want to be able to have access to healthcare, and keep their doctors, and keep their insurance," he said.

"We are working to replace that with common sense reform," he said."It's a very popular bill that will continue to be unpopular."

One of the things Congress has been able to pass recently was a budget that Palazzo says will help America steer away from more problems.

"We would be seeing a lot of more cuts coming our way if we didn't avoid sequestration," he said."

He said the budget deal was a bi-partisan effort that included some responsible cuts.

"What we needed was that time to work together," he said.
