Reaction To Tom Price As HHS Secretary Is Near Universal Horror

This appointment is a nasty betrayal of seniors who voted for Trump. Also, anyone with Obamacare.

Tom Price has some severe "fixes" for health insurance in America. NPR reports that

Price's plan offers fixed tax credits so people can buy their own insurance on the private market. The credit starts at $1,200 a year and rises with age — but unlike Ryan's plan, it's not adjusted for income. Everyone receives the same credit whether they are rich or poor. People on Medicaid, Medicare, the military health plan known as Tricare, or the Veterans Affairs' health plan could opt instead for the tax credit to buy private insurance.

You got that, seniors? You can "opt" out of Medicare and get at least a one hundred dollar a month subsidy to buy health insurance on the private market!
