Donald Trump has selected Rep. Tom Price as his Health and Human Services Secretary. Price is a critic of Obamacare. And being a doctor, he knows a thing or two about the healthcare industry.
Trump Picks Very Vocal Obamacare Critic For HHS Secretary
President-elect Donald Trump has apparently made another addition to his White House administration. The role of Health and Human Services Secretary has been given to Republican Rep. Tom Price from Georgia, reports The Washington Post.
Price, an orthopedic surgeon, has been a longtime opponent of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Recently, he said that under Obamacare, “The American people are paying more for health care and getting less – less access, less quality, and fewer choices.”
He’s backed up the tough talk by offering bills that detail health care alternatives of his own, suggesting he is certainly going to work closely with President Trump to repeal and replace the current president’s signature legislation.
Pro-life groups like the Susan B. Anthony List are also pleased with Trump’s choice, noting Price’s stellar right-to-life record. It’s an important consideration after the Obama administration’s controversial HHS mandate forced Christian companies to provide abortion-inducing drugs to their employees. It ended up even dragging Little Sisters of the Poor to court.
