President-elect Donald Trump has been announcing his nominations to serve in his cabinet, and this week has been rumored to have several high-profile announcements coming.
On Tuesday morning, the Trump transition team confirmed that Georgia Congressman Tom Price will be his nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Life News reported.
In addition to being pro-life, Price has been an outspoken critic of Obamacare, an indication that Trump planned to keep his promise to repeal Obamacare.
“He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American,” Trump said in a statement announcing his pick.
Price has also strongly objected to using government funds to fund Planned Parenthood — something that will make pro-life conservatives cheer and liberals groan.
“There is much work to be done to ensure we have a health care system that works for patients, families, and doctors; that leads the world in the cure and prevention of illness; and that is based on sensible rules to protect the well-being of the country while embracing its innovative spirit,” Price said in a statement accepting the nomination.
Politico noted that Price had strong credentials for the HHS slot. In addition to serving in Congress for several years, Price was an orthopedic surgeon, so he knows how the health care industry works.
Price has spoken out against Obamacare repeatedly. He called it a “broken, unaffordable law” and stressed that it must be replaced, USA Today reported.
Having a pro-life, anti-Obamacare HHS secretary means that for the first time in almost a decade, American health care might actually improve.
By nominating Price, Trump has shown Americans that he is a man of his word. Trump promised to respect all life — even the life of the unborn — as well as fix the broken health care system.
It looks like Trump intends to keep both those promises.
