Trump Chooses Alex Azar for Health and Human Services Secretary
15 November, 2017, 09:49
President Donald Trump has nominated Alex Azar, a former pharmaceutical executive, to run the Department of Health and Human Services. Price racked up roughly $1 million in private and government air travel in just seven months, according to Politico. "I don't think anybody can question his credentials from an experience perspective". Investigations into Price's actions are ongoing. He also pointed to Eli Lilly raising drug prices by double digits while Azar was an executive at the company.
If confirmed, Azar will oversee the National Institute of Health, the CDC, the FDA and other agencies.
Republicans were supportive with Senate health committee head Lamar Alexander of Tennessee describing Azar as a qualified, experienced nominee.
"President Trump has nominated in Mr. Azar someone who shares his misguided and factually flawed views on the Affordable Care Act", Woodhouse said.

Azar also drew praise from PhRMA, the largest pharmaceutical industry trade group and America's Health Insurance Plans, the key lobbyist for the insurer industry.
Azar, who has served as an HHS deputy secretary during the George W. Bush administration and as Eli Lilly's US president, will be tasked with advancing the president's repeal and replace push for the Affordable Care Act and ostensibly with tackling high pharmaceutical prices, an issue Trump campaigned on and has touched on during his time in the White House.
"In his public statements, Alex Azar has made clear that he is opposed to measures to restrain prescription companies' profiteering and limit improper marketing, while favoring weaker safety approval standards". "He had full responsibility as deputy secretary for the regulatory processes at HHS".
