GOP Representative Tom Price, a former orthopedic surgeon, has been chosen by the President-elect — to be his Secretary of Health and Human Services.
GOP Rep. Price served 20 years of his medical tenure in Atlanta, Georgia. In Georgia, is where he got his start, POLITICALLY, as well!
Rep. Price openly endorsed Trump, along with 8 other GOP House chairmen, in May 2016. Rep. Price and his colleagues made this statement:
“There is a path to winning in November, and it comes through unity. To solidify this partnership, we endorse Mr. Trump as the Republican nominee for President and call upon all Americans to support him.”
It’s of significance that Rep. Price endorsed Trump back in May of 2016. Back before the Republican National Convention, when many Republicans were doing their best to stop Trump from [officially] becoming the Republican Presidential Nominee.
Rep. Price has voted against abortion, HEAVILY, since 2005. Which is a virtue of most Republicans. He is very cynical when it comes to government intrusion of healthcare.
Once [or if] the US Senate confirms President-elect Trump’s appointment of Rep. Price to be the Sec. of Health and Human services, he will oversee much more than Obamacare. He will be responsible for the Medicaid plan for the elderly and the Medicaid plan for the impoverished, among numerous other programs and health issues across the USA.
Representative Price has been a fierce critic of the Affordable Healthcare Act [Obamacare]. He says that Obamacare gives the federal government WAY TOO MUCH POWER and makes the government too intrusive. He is quoted as saying “The problem that I have with Obamacare is that its premise is that Washington knows best.”
Rep. Price is one of the top conservative health policy philosophers. He has been pushing for his own health legislation, majorly, since 2009. He, and fellow GOP’ers, have been pushing it as an alternative to Obamacare.
Rep. Price is one of the biggest cynics [when it comes to Obamacare].
“There’s a genuine desire to have us coalesce around a single plan so that the American people can see who’s trying to solve these challenges.”
-Rep. Price [on Obamacare]
Rep. Price may finally get to see Obamacare eviscerated. President-elect Trump, with the GOP House, the GOP Senate, and Rep. Price as the Sec. of Health and Human services could knock out Obamacare [a.k.a. repeal Obamacare] very swiftly [after Inauguration Day].
Of course, left-wingers are very critical of Rep. Price. But they find a bone to pick with LITERALLY ANYTHING that Trump has something to do with. This guy, right here, just made a big statement on Twitter … with no basis, no facts, no proof, no evidence, no anything:
And yet it’s got over a thousand retweets … and counting! I bet the liberals believe that with no evidence, whatsoever. Yet they condemn Trump for being a “racist”, “bigot”, “misogynist”, “fascist”, a “Nazi”, a “xenophobe” with no core-evidence WHATSOEVER. And they also condemned Trump for saying “millions” of illegal aliens voted in the general election. Because they said he had no proof. Well, Trump has more of a basis for his wild claim than this guy does. He literally called Rep. Price a “birther” with no proof!
And this ‘pro-choice’ organization is already talking mad sh*t when it comes to Rep. Price:
Good. I don’t see the problem with his statement. And any respectable woman wouldn’t either. It’s not other Americans’ responsibility to go buy someone birth control. It’s the the woman’s [or the couple’s] responsibility. That’s what “adulthood” is, ladies and gentlemen. Take care of yourself and pay for yourself!
GOOD CHOICE, PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP. WELCOME TO THE TEAM, REPRESENTATIVE PRICE!
