Is it a "lie" or an "alternative fact?"
Rep. Tom Price, the man tapped by President Donald Trump to run the federal health department, refused to say Tuesday whether Trump lied about working with him on a replacement plan for Obamacare that will be introduced after he is confirmed for the new job.
Price played coy about Trump's discussions with him — or lack thereof — when questioned at a hearing of the Senate Finance Committee, which is reviewing his nomination as secretary of the Health and Human Services Department.
Trump has called for the Affordable Care Act to be repealed and quickly replaced with new health-care legislation.
"President Trump said that he's working with you on a replacement plan for the ACA, which is nearly finished and will be revealed after your confirmation. Is that true?" asked Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio.
