Tom Price, Obamacare Critic, Is Said to Be Trump Selection for Health Secretary

The New York Times reports:
President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Representative Tom Price, a six-term Republican congressman from Georgia who has led opposition to the Affordable Care Act, to be secretary of health and human services, according to a transition team official.

Mr. Price, an orthopedic surgeon, has been a severe critic of the health law, saying it interferes with the ability of patients and doctors to make medical decisions.

And he says that events have borne out his warnings.

“Premiums have gone up, not down,” Mr. Price said recently. “Many Americans lost the health coverage they were told time and time again by the president that they could keep. Choices are fewer.”
You can't say Tom Price doesn't know about medicine! Best of luck to progressives getting Tom Price to promote ObamaCare during sign up periods!
