Three pieces of news from the Trump transition team this week are providing solid proof that repealing Obamacare and preparing a quick replacement for it is more than just an empty campaign promise.You'll want to read the entire article.
The first is President-elect Trump's decision to choose longtime Obamacare critic and replacement plan architect Rep. Tom Price to be Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Second, is Vice President-elect Mike Pence's statement on FOX News last night that repealing Obamacare will indeed be the first thing the new administration intends to achieve right out of the gate.
The third sign is more subtle, but the Trump team's decision to bring in one particular antitrust lawyer might be the most potent move of them all in the battle to reduce American health care costs. Call it a potential "secret weapon" if you will.
