1. Trump picks Rep. Tom Price as HHS secretary
President-elect Donald Trump has picked Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), an orthopedic surgeon and loud critic of the Affordable Care Act, to be secretary of health and human services. In a statement, Trump called Price the “ideal choice” because he is a “tireless problem solver and the go-to expert on healthcare policy.” Price, chair of the House Budget Committee, has helped draft several bills to replace the ACA. While campaigning, Trump said he would repeal and replace ObamaCare, but following a meeting with President Obama after the election, Trump said he would instead keep some of the elements of the law, and amend it rather than scrapping it.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
