Donnelly Will Oppose Price Nomination as HHS Secretary

Senator Joe Donnelly says he will oppose Rep. Tom Price's nomination as Health and Human Services Secretary. Price is known as an active opponent of the Affordable Care Act and, Donnelly says, Price has “led the charge to privatize Medicare,” a position the Donnelly opposes: “I have opposed efforts to private Medicare in the past and I will oppose any effort to privatize Medicare or turn it into a voucher program in the future.” Donnelly sees Price's nomination as a “direct path to end Medicare as we know it.” You can read more about Donnelly's opposition to Price here.
