To: The United States Senate
Tell the Senate: Reject Extremist Tom Price
Block Tom Price's nomination for secretary of health and human services. His brazen apparent ethics violations and support for extremist policies—from privatizing Medicare to gutting Medicaid to defunding Planned Parenthood and repealing the Affordable Care Act—would hurt millions of Americans.
Why is this important?
Taking away health care for millions of Americans has been the focus of Representative Price's career. Voting for him would be a vote for privatizing Medicare, gutting Medicaid, and repealing the ACA.
Rep. Price's legislation, the Empowering Patients First Act gives tax breaks to the wealthy and repeatedly punishes the sick by repealing Medicaid expansion, allowing discrimination against pre-exisiting conditions, and increasing rates for the elderly.
Rep. Price has questionable judgement. He is a member of the extreme Association of American Physicians and Surgeons which claims that HIV does not cause AIDS and there is a link between abortion and breast cancer. He also has ethics scandals around trading stocks with companies that he is legislating at the time.
Rep. Price has a plan to dismantle our health care system. Senators - look at his record and reject Rep. Price for HHS secretary as too extreme for America.
