WASHINGTON, D.C. – Family Research Council today commended President-elect Donald Trump’s choice of U.S. Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) to lead the Department of Health and Human Services.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement:

“I offer my congratulations to U.S. Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) on his selection as HHS Secretary.  We have worked closely with him throughout his 11 years in Congress and have found him to be a committed conservative who has led the way in the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.    He has been a strong advocate for legislation that would ensure Americans are not forced to subsidize elective abortion, and has worked to halt overbearing HHS mandates.

“I applaud President-Elect Trump for selecting a HHS secretary who is well-suited to implement an alternative to Obamacare and reverse the damage done by President Obama’s worst policy failure.  As a doctor who worked in private practice for two decades, Dr. Price will pursue a health care system that is market-focused and patient-driven,” concluded Perkins.
