Scott Supports Health Secretary

Washington – After voting just shy of 2AM last night, U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the statement below regarding the confirmation of Dr. Tom Price for Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“This past year in South Carolina, we saw major insurance companies leave our state, resulting in a lack of plans to choose from, rising premiums and high deductibles. Obamacare has failed, and it is time to ensure the American people have a health care system they can depend on for quality care.
As a doctor, Tom has firsthand experience with our nation’s health care system, and is a great choice to help lead us through the replacement of Obamacare. He understands that we need a patient-centered system that is not based on the whims of Washington bureaucrats. There is no question Tom will help bring strong leadership and important improvements to our healthcare policies.”
