Senator David Perdue Urges Colleagues To Support Dr. Tom Price

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement urging his colleagues to support President-elect Donald J. Trump’s nomination for U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary, fellow Georgian, Dr. Tom Price:

“Dr. Price is a standup individual and we should take comfort in his nomination because he has years of experience working within our nation's health care system. He understands how government intrusion negatively impacts patient care and will work to end Washington's takeover of our health care system. Because of his professional experience as a physician, Dr. Price 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 Dr. Price, 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.”
