President-elect Donald Trump has named his pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services…. Georgia Congressman Tom Price. He’s an adamant opponent of Obamacare and is laser focused on taking it out. Price is a fantastic pick. This is a man who is dedicated to dismantling the behemoth that is Obamacare.
Tom Price is a brilliant orthopedic surgeon and has been a leading voice in introducing legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare. He will be in charge of taking Obamacare apart. My only reservation is that he will replace it with something other than the free market, but we’ll see. Americans are anxiously awaiting the Trump Administration to do this… premiums are set to skyrocket at the beginning of the year and people need relief from this horrid burden imposed on them by Obama. The NY Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and other news outlets reported Monday evening that the six-term congressman had been selected to serve as HHS Secretary, according to sources inside the Trump Transition Team.
President-Elect Donald Trump is preparing to unveil his pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services, and a report says he will pick major Obamacare critic Tom Price, a six-term Congressman from Georgia.
The announcement of Price’s appointment may come as soon as Tuesday, according to a Monday evening report by The New York Times.
Price is a well-known critic of President Obama’s signature achievement, the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. In October, for instance, Price said Obamacare was in “near total collapse.”
In an October 1 Republican address, Price decried the collapse of Obamacare and blamed Democrats who “ignore the evidence and the voices of those who are being harmed by Obamacare” and continue to push the failed program.
In that same address, Price said Republicans were offering a “a bold vision to bring America’s healthcare system into the 21st century.”
“The fact of the matter is, the American people don’t want Washington in charge of health care,” Rep. Price said in a 2012 CBS interview. “So we continue with our message and that is that we need to repeal this law in its entirety because its premise is that Washington knows best and then we need to move forward in an open, honest, deliberate manner and correct the challenges that are out there in the health care arena so that patients, families, and doctors are making medical decisions and nobody else.” Price is a gifted patriot who clearly sees the threat of Obamacare to families and the American worker. This will also benefit doctors and insurance companies, both of which have been severely hampered and hurt by the new laws.
Price is a staunch conservative. He knows the ins and outs of governmental budgeting and policies. He formerly served as chairman of the Republican Study Committee and in 2015, began serving as chairman of the House Budget Committee, a position he still holds. Who better to know exactly how to dissect the most destructive construct America has ever seen. I would say it is a good bet that Obamacare is doomed. Obama must be really ticked. Good.
