The Star Early Edition - - BUSINESS REPORT / INTERNATIONAL - Su­san Corn­well

US HEALTH and Hu­man Ser­vices Sec­re­tary Tom Price said yes­ter­day 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.

Fail­ing

Price, on NBC’s Meet the Press, was asked whether he would im­ple­ment the Af­ford­able Care Act as it was in­tended. “Our job is to fol­low the law of the land,” Price said, but added that “the law… is fail­ing the Amer­i­can peo­ple.”

The ad­min­is­tra­tion’s goal was to re­peal and re­place Oba­macare and “put in place a sys­tem that ac­tu­ally works for pa­tients.” – Reuters
