DPG Chair DuBose Porter on Sec. Price’s Confirmation

DuBose Porter, Chairman of the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement in response to the confirmation of Rep. Tom Price as HHS Secretary:

“Republicans just doubled-down on their promise to privatize Medicare and dismantle the Affordable Care Act. This founding member of the Tea Party Caucus—who is also associated with one of the most fringe medical groups on record—co-sponsored legislation to ban stem cell research and outlaw abortion, voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and has used his office to undermine the wellbeing and economic security of persons with disabilities and the elderly.

“Price—just like Donald Trump—is always looking out for number one. He cashed in on a corrupt sweetheart deal, purchased stock in companies he would later draft beneficial legislation for, and wielded his influence for personal profit like it was a cheap side hustle.

“Democrats will continue champion policies that secure the right to affordable healthcare for everyone—including the expansion of Medicaid here in Georgia. And you can bet your bottom dollar that we will hold Price, Trump, and the rest of the Swamp Cabinet accountable.”

Swamps always get a bad rap.
You goth the swamp creatures, decaying life, lots of mud…
But they are logical and necessary parts of our world, probly based upon some physics of water and land.
I would think that only small swamps can even be sustainably drained.
DC is by design the central mud pit of our nation.
Voters are chronically fooled into impractical idealism.

Same as we hear from Chuckles Schumer and the rest of the Dems. Nothing new here.

I don’t like Price at all, but the statement is a little much for me.

Sad. These guys used to be relevant, and stuff like this is why they now are not.

Cheap side hustles are reserved for the Trumps.

Porter is simply spewing the Dem party line. Typical for an unoriginal party hack.
