FreedomWorks Statement on Selection of Chairman Tom Price to Lead HHS

Following reports that President-elect Donald Trump has named House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.) to serve as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“Getting rid of ObamaCare requires a doctor’s care. Chairman Price, a surgeon, knows what is ailing America’s health care system and the damage ObamaCare has caused. He has already shown real leadership on health care reform by leading the effort to repeal this law. He has also shown a commitment to replacing it by introducing a patient-centered alternative, the Empowering Patients First Act.”

“We know repealing ObamaCare and replacing it won’t be an easy task, but Chairman Price is the right person to lead this effort in the incoming administration.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
