Azar: 'Trump is fulfilling his promise' on healthcare

HHS Secretary Alex Azar defends the progress of the Trump administration on healthcare in an editorial for NJ.com.

He noted President Donald Trump's executive order on price transparency and his efforts to expand insurance plan options and lower prescription drug costs. Mr. Azar also takes a side swipe at single-payer health plans, which many Democratic presidential candidates are running on in the 2020 election.

"Bringing transparency to healthcare is all about putting you in control," Mr. Azar writes. "It's a major contrast from proposals for a total government takeover of healthcare, which would put bureaucrats, rather than patients, in charge."
