Trump said in a statement that Price “has earned a reputation for being a tireless problem solver and the go-to expert on healthcare policy, making him the ideal choice to serve in this capacity. He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American.”
He has been an orthopaedic surgeon and is currently the chairman for the House Budget Committee.
This is an interesting appointment that could spell the end for Obamacare as we currently know it.
