WASHINGTON, DC— Early this morning the Senate voted to confirm Dr. Tom Price, Republican Congressman representing the Sixth District of Georgia, to be the next Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services by a  vote of 52-47. Rep. Rick Allen (R-Ga.-12) released the following statement in support:

“I am very proud of my friend and colleague, Dr. Tom Price, who is now officially the next HHS Secretary. From his time serving Georgians in the State Senate and House of Representatives to his medical practice days as a surgeon and later Medical Director of the Orthopedic Clinic at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, who better to lead the charge in bringing Obamacare relief to Americans than Dr. Price? Now that his confirmation is final, we need to get the ball rolling to deliver a repeal and replacement of Obamacare—I have the utmost faith in my colleague and know he has the experience needed to get the job done.”
