U.S. Health Secretary Tom Price: My Job Is To Follow Obamacare Law

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price, said that it was his department’s job to follow the law on the Affordable Care Act, former President Obama’s signature domestic initiative known as Obamacare.

Price, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” was asked whether he would implement the Affordable Care Act as it was intended, he said: “Our job is to follow the law of the land, and we take that mission very, very seriously, and the role of the Health and Human Services Department is to improve the health, the safety and the well-being of the American people.

“And what we understand, what the American people understand is that their health and well-being is being harmed right now by the current law.”

He, however, said the administration’s goal was to repeal and replace Obamacare and “put in place a system that actually works for patients.”
