Alexander on Selection of Rep. Tom Price as Secretary of Health and Human Services

WASHINGTON, November 29 — Senate health committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on President-elect Trump’s selection of Representative Tom Price (R-Ga.) to become the next United States Secretary of Health and Human Services:

“Dr. Price has a thorough understanding of health care policy and the damage that Obamacare has caused – he can see the view from the doctor's office as well as from the lawmaker's office. I look forward to working with him to find a responsible way to replace and then repeal Obamacare so we can move most health care decisions out of Washington, D.C., and back to states and patients.”
