Senate Democrat leader attacks Price on ethics charge

Chairman of the House Budget Committee Tom Price (R-GA) announces the House Budget during a press conferenceBy Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's choice to run the Department of Health and Human Services may have broken the law by making a stock purchase just before he introduced legislation that would have benefited the firm, the Senate's leading Democrat charged on Tuesday. A confirmation hearing for Tom Price, a Republican congressman and orthopedic surgeon from Georgia, was scheduled for Wednesday before the Senate health committee. If confirmed, he would be a key player in carrying out Trump's plans to overhaul Democratic President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law.
