Via TPM: "Price, an orthopedic surgeon and Budget Committee Chair in the outgoing Congress, is an arch-critic of 'Obamacare' and a top supporter of Speaker Paul Ryan's plan to phase out Medicare and replace it with private insurance and vouchers."
Price is a surgeon who opposes abortion rights. In the U.S. House he supported the proposed Protect Life Act, which would have denied Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) funding to health care plans that offered abortion. That law would also have allowed hospitals to decline to provide emergency abortion care.
He voted against a bill prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation, and he voted in favor of constitutionally defining marriage as one-man-one-woman. He voted against H.R. 2965, which would have ended "don't ask, don't tell." In 2008 Price signed a pledge sponsored by Americans for Prosperity promising to vote against any Global Warming legislation that would raise taxes.
He joins the Trump Locker Room, and he's bringing his own towel.
I have no idea what the folks in the 'fly-over' parts of the country are going to do without Medicare. Die off and 'decrease the surplus population' (a la Scrooge), I guess. I have been SO looking forward to getting off private insurance, which has just about bankrupted me...guess I need to suck it up and die off, too.
Another POS. What will it take for regular folk to understand that Republicans care ONLY for the rich? Those who NEVER pay their fair share are just loved by the have- nots. Wonder when the US "Brexit" regrets start?
