Price, a Republican representative from Georgia, was confirmed as health and human services secretary Feb. 10, 2017, by a Senate vote of 52-47.

He resigned on Sept. 29, 2017, amid scrutiny over his use of private planes at taxpayer expense and three days after Senate Republican leaders decided not to hold a vote on a bill to repeal Obamacare because they didn’t have the votes to pass the bill.

Price, an orthopedic surgeon by trade, served five terms in Congress and was chairman of the House Budget Committee.

He has led the charge to repeal Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, saying it doesn’t give patients or doctors adequate health care choices.
