Tom Price quotes

What we're trying to do is to make certain that every single person has health coverage.feedback

We don't want anybody to be without coverage, remembering that there are 20 million folks right now in this nation who said I'm going to pay a penalty. I'm going to suffer the potential from the IRS or ask for a waiver because what the federal government is doing for them as it relates to health care doesn't respond to their needs. We need a better system.feedback

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the privilege of being on your team.feedback

Imposing burdensome rules that leave business managers and owners worried about harsh potential penalties and less able to serve their customers is unwise and unhelpful.feedback

Every American ought to be able to purchase the kind of coverage that they want.feedback

Again, this is one of those areas where we think individuals ought to have access to the kind of coverage that they want, not the kind of coverage that the government forces them to buy.feedback

What we're committed to is making sure the American people have access to affordable coverage. So you will continue to move at repeal, is what I gained from that conversation. Fourteen hundred and forty-two times the ACA said 'the secretary shall' or 'the secretary may.feedback

I am committed to fulfilling the oath that I took, which is upholding the law of the land. I haven't had any discussions about that. That was done prior to my arrival. What we're committed to is making certain that the American people have access to affordable coverage. As I said, we're committed to making certain that every American has access to affordable coverage. What we believe is it's important for every single American to be able to choose to buy the coverage they want.feedback

What we believe is that it's important for every American to choose the kind of coverage that they want. We are committed to carrying out the law of the land.feedback

If it needs more beefing up ... for folks who are low income, between 50 and 64 years of age, that's something that we've talked about, something that we've entertained, and that may happen throughout the process.feedback

It's a fine needle that needs to be threaded, no doubt about it.feedback

The president's very supportive of this plan, thinks that it addresses his priorities.feedback

I believe it's a perfectly appropriate role for the government – this happens by and large at the state government level, because they're the ones that have the public health responsibility – to determine whether or not immunizations are required for a community population, whether it's growing kids or the like or whether there's an outbreak of a particular infectious disease, whether or not an immunization ought to be required or be able to be utilized.feedback

You had the government before, saying to a certain sector of society, a certain individual, you can't make what that company is willing to pay you for your services. That doesn't sound like America to me. What we're saying is that we ought not single out certain individuals in this nation and have the federal government have the power to be able to say you're going to be treated differently than that individual, even though you make the same amount of money.feedback

I think that the previous administration singled out health-care executives. You're absolutely right. And what they said is health-care executives ought to be punished.feedback

Yeah, I don't think it stipulates that it's health-care executives. I think it's the level of income. If it's health-care executives, then I'll take a peek at it. It doesn't make any sense.feedback

The CBO report's coverage numbers defy logic.feedback

Every single American will have access and have the financial feasibility to purchase it.feedback

I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through.feedback

The CBO (Congressional Budget Office report) looked at a portion of our plan but not the entire plan […] So we disagree strenuously with with the report that was put out. We believe that our plan will cover more individuals at a lower cost and give them the choices that they want for the coverage that they want for themselves and for their family, not that the government forces them to buy.feedback

We believe that the plan that we're putting in place is going to insure more individuals than currently are insured. So we think the CBO simply has it wrong.feedback

We believe that our plan will cover more individuals and at a lower cost and give them the choices that they want.feedback

We disagree strenuously. The fact of the matter is, we're working on the regulations right now. The fact of the matter is (Americans) are going to be able to have a coverage policy that they want for themselves and for their family. They are going to have the kind of choices that they want. … So we think that CBO simply has it wrong.feedback

We will read the report, look into report beyond the top lines and we'll have further comment tomorrow and talk with our colleagues about why we believe the entire plan that we have recommended moving forward and adopting is one that will provide greater opportunity for folks to purchase coverage they want.feedback

We disagree strenuously with the report that was put out. It's virtually impossible to have that number occur. … It's just not believable.feedback

Again, the premiums are up and deductibles are up. If you're an individual out there making fifty, sixty thousand dollars and your deductible is eight, ten, twelve thousand bucks you may have that insurance card, but you don't have coverage. And I hear from my former colleagues all the time about patients who come into their office and they recommend something for them, and they're not able to get it because the deductible is so high. I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially. There's coverage that's going to go up.feedback

Success, means more people covered than are covered right now, and at an average cost that is less.feedback

I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through, understanding that they'll have choices that they can select the kinda coverage that they want for themselves and for their family. We believe, I believe, and the president believes firmly that if you create a system that's accessible for everybody and you provide the financial feasibility for everybody to get coverage, that we have a great opportunity to increase coverage over where we are right now.feedback

You hear people's lives that have been affected in remarkably adverse ways that sometimes you don't think about as it relates to health care – whether it's businesses that haven't been able to survive, or individuals who need to take three, four, five jobs. Well, in fact the number of individuals who actually got coverage through the exchange who didn't have coverage before, or who weren't eligible for Medicaid before is relatively small. So we've turned things upside down completely for three or four or five million individuals.feedback

Success, it's important to look at that, and it means more people covered than are covered right now at an average cost that is less, and I believe we can firmly do that with the plan that's laid out there right now. I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through.feedback

I believe and the president believes firmly that if you create a system that's accessible for everybody and you provide the financial feasibility for everybody to get coverage, that we have a great opportunity to increase coverage over where we are right now.feedback

I'll tell you that the plan that we've laid out here will not leave that number of individuals uncovered. In fact I believe, again, that we'll have more individuals covered.feedback

I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through. There's cost that needs to come down, and we believe we're going to be able to do that through this system. There's coverage that's going to go up. This is a little puzzling because independents and conservatives for decades have said, Shouldn't we equalize the tax treatment of the purchase of health coverage for folks who get it through their employer and folks who aren't able to get it through their employer?feedback

That's exactly what the tax credits do. We don't dictate to people what they ought to buy or what they must buy. There's an opportunity to put some means testing in there but that's not the correlation factor to what it actually costs. Age is the thing that correlates best to what health coverage costs. If you look at it in the way that the market will allow, then, for individuals to have choices, who knows what that 60-year-old wants?feedback

We strongly support the plan, which is this bill.feedback

Who knows what that 60-year-old wants? I know that the federal government doesn't know what that 60-year-old wants.feedback

I'll let others provide a description for it. I prefer to call it patient care.feedback

This is a work in progress and continues to be so. Let me make clear to people that this single bill is not the entire plan.feedback

We think it's important that the legislature work its will on this process.feedback

We need to equalize the tax treatment for the purchase of coverage. Those… in the employer-sponsored market, they get a tax benefit for buying health coverage. Those folks that are out there in the individual small group market, (get) no tax benefit and that's what this plan would (fix).feedback

This is the beginning of the process and we look forward to working with them and others.feedback

This is a work in progress and we'll work with the House and Senate in this process.feedback

The president and the administration support this step in what we believe is in the right direction.feedback

The president and the administration support this step which we believe is in the right direction. This is a work in progress.feedback

This is the culmination of years of work, it's the culmination of years of concern and frustration by the American people. The president and the administration support this step which we believe is in the right direction. This is a work in progress.feedback

Tonight, President Trump reassured the American people that help is on the way for those who are suffering as a result of the Affordable Care Act. . Now is the time for action.feedback

We still have 20 million individuals without coverage. I think as policy makers, it is incumbent upon us to say, what can we do to increase that coverage?feedback

I would just convey to the Medicare population of this nation, they don't have reason to be concerned. We look forward to assisting them in getting the care and coverage that they need.feedback

It's true that he said that, yes. I've had conversations with the president about health care, yes.feedback

The reality is everything I did was ethical, above board, legal and transparent. Nobody ought to lose insurance because they got a bad diagnosis.feedback

Nobody ought to be priced out of the market for having a bad diagnosis.feedback

We need to make sure nobody loses their insurance or is unable to gain insurance because of pre-existing conditions.feedback

I commit that we will not abandon individuals with preexisting illness or disease.feedback

There's been a lot of talk about individuals losing health coverage. That is not our goal, nor is it our desire, nor is it our plan.feedback

Nobody is interested in pulling the rug out from under anybody. We believe that it's absolutely imperative that individuals, who have health coverage, keep health coverage and move, hopefully, to greater choices and opportunities to gain the coverage that they want for themselves or their families.feedback

One of my goals in this entire debate is to lower the temperature.feedback

I think that for Americans ... the last thing we want to do is go from a Democrat health-care system to a Republican health-care system.feedback

I have no reason to believe he's changed his position.feedback

Nobody is going to be dying on the streets with a President Trump.feedback

We all want a health care system that's affordable, that's accessible to all, of the highest quality, with the greatest number of choices, driven by world-leading innovations, and responsive to the needs of the individual patient.feedback

He "studied the company…and felt it had significant merit and promise and purchased the initial shares on the stock exchange.feedback

Did you take additional actions after [you were notified of the stock purchase] to advance your plan to help the company that you now own stock in?feedback

We believe it's appropriate to put in place a system that gives every person the financial feasibility to be able to purchase the coverage that they want for themselves and for their family, again not what the government forces them to buy.feedback

Why some folks here in Washington would be willing to let these programs go bankrupt is beyond me. Medicare and Social Security are going broke.feedback

The Obama administration has also admitted that 20 percent of those shopping for insurance on the Obamacare exchanges will have only one coverage option to choose from. That is not actually a choice.feedback

Furthermore, those plans that are offered come with narrower networks meaning fewer choices of physicians and less access to quality care.feedback

On November 8th, I'll join the people of Georgia in supporting Donald Trump for president.feedback
