Tom Price, a huge critic of Obamacare is rumored to be Donald Trump’s latest choice to join his cabinet. Here are all the details on Tom and why Donald might think he’s the perfect choice for secretary of health and human services.
1. Tom Price is Donald Trump’s rumored pick for secretary of health and human services.
Rumors are swirling that Tom is Donald‘s latest cabinet member pick, and that he has selected him for the position of secretary of health and human services. The HHS is the member of the president’s cabinet who is concerned with matters of health in the United States.
2. He has been studying how to get rid of Obamacare for over six years.
Tom seriously opposes President Obama‘s Affordable Care Act and has been working toward getting rid of it since it was first put into place. That would make him a perfect match for Donald, who has said he wants to dismantle Obamacare.
3. He has introduced bills that offer a replacement plan for Obamacare.
Though Tom does want to say goodbye to the Affordable Care Act, he isn’t trying to do it without proposing alternatives. In fact he has introduced different bills offering replacement plans in every single Congress since Democrats started work on the legislation in 2009. So, if he does want to get rid of Obamacare, he’s at least got a plan for what to put in its place.
4. He’s an orthopedic surgeon.
You could say Tom is very qualified in matters of health, being an orthopedic surgeon who represents several Atlanta suburbs. So, if you want a health and human services secretary who knows what he’s talking about in the medical sense, he’s not a bad choice.
5. He’s a six term Republican congressman.
He’s been a member of the House of Representatives since 2005 and is chairman of the House Budget Committee.
