There was some concern over how serious Donald Trump would be about getting rid of ObamaCare. Because let’s face it, people hate ObamaCare more than they hate having their in-laws stay for Christmas. At least the in-laws leave. ObamaCare has just hung around like your negative Nancy mother-in-law. Who gets sicker and meaner with each passing year, demanding more from you for less. So Trump choosing Rep. Tom Price, the most anti-ObamaCare Congressman you can find, to head up the HHS Department should help alleviate some of those concerns. As to your mother-in-law… sorry, that’s a bad wrap. Oh, oh you know all the ObamaCare alternatives leftists claim we don’t have?
Tom Price, MD has written a bunch of them:
The Georgia congressman and orthopaedic surgeon, 62, chairs the House of Representatives budget committee.
He will play a key role in Republican plans to replace the Affordable Healthcare Act (Obamacare).
In his campaign, Mr Trump vowed to repeal and replace the act, considered Mr Obama’s flagship measure.
Mr Trump said Mr Price was a “tireless problem solver” and “the go-to expert on healthcare policy.”
“He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American,” Mr Trump said in a statement.
So all the ObamaCare horror stories (see HuffPo PANICS: Trump Could ‘Easily’ Destroy Obamacare… and WATCH: Maria Bartiromo Rips Into Obamacare Architect on Job Loss) you’ve heard and/or suffered through? Here’s hoping they’re a thing of the past.
Here’s a brief clip of Price talking about what he believes are the core principles of a health care law:

According to those in the know on the Internet, Rep Price is also pro-life. I can get behind that one!
May Obamacare be kicked out of law as swiftly as Obama packs his mom jeans to vacate la Casa Blanca. I will not be sorry to say adios to either. But I’m not sure what I’m happier to wave goodbye to. It’s a tossup. Both Obama and his Care test the limits of suck. It’ll also be fun to watch the continued Wicked Witch meltdown of cotton headed ninnymuggins who want to keep ObamaCare simply because Obama’s name is in it. They can’t like the law because it’s beneficial. With leftists, just wrap something up in a name they like and they’ll buy it wholesale. That’s what happens when you abscond all critical thought for the feels.
And it’s not just Rep. Price. Even the most ardent #NeverTrumpers have to admit the transition team is putting together a pretty decent cabinet. Hopefully Trump can actually pull off a decent presidency. It’s been an arduous eight years, lemme tell you… as Trump would say.
Kudos President-elect Trump!
