Hazardous to Your Health

Other Tom Price policies endanger your health, too, although he won't be directly responsible for them in his new position.

Price voted to cut funds for women's preventive health and opposes women's reproductive rights. He's voted to block reasonable gun control measures, despite our nation's high rates of gun injury and death. He voted against regulating tobacco as a drug.

Price's opposition to environmental regulation and support for fossil fuel exploitation harms public health both in the US and worldwide. His opposition to marijuana legalization limits patients' treatment options.

Trump's opposition to Medicare cuts distinguished him from other Republican contenders and helped him win the presidency. With this choice, he's made it clear that his campaign was a lie. Tom Price's nomination will have an adverse impact on Americans' health.

If someone tells you someday that this year's election made them sick, they may be telling the truth.
