Graves Statement on Rep. Tom Price HHS Nomination

Washington, November 29, 2016 - Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today issued the following statement after President-elect Donald Trump nominated Rep. Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA-06) for secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

"I can’t think of anyone better than Dr. Price to lead the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. As a practicing physician for more than 20 years, Tom knows the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and understands better than most why we need to keep the federal government out of that relationship. As a congressman, Tom led the charge to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free-market system that increases choice, drives down premiums and puts patients first. He will do a great job implementing President-elect Trump’s vision of restoring health care freedom and reversing the Obama administration’s one-size-fits-all health care policies."
