Senator David Perdue Statement On Congressman Tom Price Nomination

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today issued the following statement on media reports that President-elect Donald J. Trump has chosen U.S. Representative Tom Price (R-GA-06) to lead the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

“Tom is a fellow Georgian who understands that we need to stop Washington's takeover of our health care system. As a doctor, he is seen as a leading voice on health care policy and has a common-sense plan to replace Obamacare that will lower costs and put patients in charge of their health care choices. I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Tom, and there is no doubt in my mind that he will do a fantastic job improving our nation’s health care system and the lives of all Americans.”
