Secretary Tom Price wants to fix US healthcare


( CNN) While President Donald Trump insisted Congress repeal Obamacare within his first 100 days, the legislation was rushed, according to his Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Tom Price, and that’s why the Republican failed.

But the most recent setback will not deter the Trump administration, he said during an interview at the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Tuesday with CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Price operates a department with a budget of more than$ 1 trillion dollars and more than 80,000 employees who do work that he said touches on “the lives of every single American.” The orthopedic surgeon — the third doctor to comprised the secretary post — said he was visiting Georgia on Tuesday and Wednesday to gratified leaders at the CDC. He also gave a speech Wednesday about the country’s developing opioid epidemic at the National RX Drug Abuse and Heroin Summit.
