While the liberal media tries to tell us Donald Trump’s transition team is in shambles, and there’s turmoil over the possible selection of Mitt Romney as Secretary of State, Trump has been busily interviewing a many candidates for other positions.
Today it’s official. The racist/misogynist-in-chief has chosen another non-white woman for a key position.
And it appears Trump has its “dream team” for dismantling Obamacare and fixing our broken health system.
Per Breitbart, President-elect Donald Trump is tapping Congressman Tom Price (R-GA) to be Secretary of Health and Human Services and Seema Verma as Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, according to a release from the transition team.
“Together, Chairman Price and Seema Verma are the dream team that will transform our healthcare system for the benefit of all Americans,” Trump said in a statement.
Price, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, is a physician and a fierce opponent of Obamacare.
Trump called Price the “ideal choice” for the position, as he already has experience drafting a repeal and replace option for Obamacare.
“He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American,” Trump said in a statement.
After accepting Trump’s nomination, Price vowed to fix the healthcare system that has been crippled by Obamacare.
“There is much work to be done to ensure we have a healthcare system that works for patients, families, and doctors; that leads the world in the cure and prevention of illness; and that is based on sensible rules to protect the well-being of the country while embracing its innovative spirit,” he said.
Trump’s pick to serve as the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is from the private sector.
Verma is the President, CEO and founder of SVC, Inc., a national health policy consulting company, giving her a wealth of experience of working with the government health care options.
According to the release, she helped design consumer-first solutions for Indiana’s health care system under Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana and Governor Mike Pence.
Let’s hope they get cracking on this Obamacare debacle. I (Michele Hickford) can tell you I have a very personal interest in seeing a change. I kid you not…my premiums are set to go up SIXTY PERCENT.
