Atlanta, Ga. – Tea Party Patriots CEO and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today reacting to the news that President-elect Donald Trump has selected Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) to be the next Secretary of Health and Human Services.

“Tom Price is an outstanding choice to be Secretary of Health and Human Services; he knows the true pain Obamacare has caused and is 100 percent for repeal.  He stood with me the Saturday before Obamacare passed the House watching the crowd of over 50,000 people. He saw their passion and anger that weekend and he has heard from constituents, physicians, and fellow Americans around the country in the years since about the need to repeal and replace Obamacare. Tom Price is a successful doctor as well as a leader in Congress.  He has never backed down from fighting to get rid of this disaster Washington has imposed on the American people. With this appointment, President-elect Trump has given real, tangible hope to the millions across America that their health care nightmare is almost over.”
