Tom Price sworn in as secretary of Health and Human Services

Tom Price took the oath of office as secretary of Health and Human Services Friday, hours after the Senate confirmed him to the post in a close vote.

Vice President Mike Pence administered the oath to Dr. Price, calling him “the most principled expert on health care policy” during 12 years as a House lawmaker.

A physician who specialized in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Price will be at the forefront of the Trump administration’s efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

The Senate confirmed his nomination by a vote of 52-47 early Friday morning.
