President-elect Trump has chosen Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), a fierce critic of the Affordable Care Act and a proponent of overhauling the nation’s entitlement programs, to lead the department of Health and Human Services. An announcement of Trump’s selection of Price, a third-generation doctor who chairs the House Budget Committee is expected to be made as early as Tuesday. As HHS secretary, Price would be the incoming administration’s point person for dismantling the 2010 health-care law, which Trump promised to start dismantling on his first day in the Oval Office. Price has played a leading role in the Republican opposition to the law and has helped draft several comprehensive bills to replace it. The GOP-led House has voted five dozen times to eliminate all or part of the ACA but has never had a chance of accomplishing its goal as long as Obama has been in the White House.
