WASHINGTON D.C. – Representative Tom Price of the sixth Congressional District of Georgia and a physician who practiced medicine in Atlanta, delivers the Weekly Republican Address on health care. Representative Price believes that third-party decision making and rising costs are driving patients away from doctors and the desired care they seek. However, he feels the challenge lies in supplying more accessible health care which is both affordable and patient centered without impairing the quality of care, innovation, and choices which are the cornerstones of American medicine. According to Representative Price, this is an impossible task under the Democrat and President Obama’s “one size fits all” approach to health care.
Additionally as a physician who navigated Federal health care programs, Representative Price experienced first hand how impossible it is for Washington bureaucrats to handle the personal and unique circumstances encountered by doctors and patients each and every day.
