Donald Trump has nominated Rep. Tom Price to head the Department of Health and Human Services. You can tell it’s a great pick by the Associated Press headline: “Trump picks Price as HHS secretary; Democrats blast choice.”
Price is an orthopedic surgeon and a leading critic of Obamacare. As a Congressman, he has devoted a great deal of thought to how Obamacare can best be repealed and partially replaced. That will be agenda item number one as Secretary of HHS. Naturally, the Democrats are apoplectic. But, as someone once pointed out, elections have consequences.
Donald Trump’s appointments so far have been excellent. They have gone a long way to quiet concerns (including mine) that his administration may not be a conservative one.
