The Washington curse strikes again
Washington, D.C. has put a curse on prominent Georgians who go there to work for Donald Trump. First there was the case of Tom Price, the congressman who was picked to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Price was part of the Republican leadership when the GOP took control of the Georgia Senate in 2003. He followed that with a skillful victory in the 2004 election that vaulted him into the 6th Congressional District seat. His climb up the ladder continued in the U.S. House, where he was chairman of the House Budget Committee and often mentioned as a potential candidate for speaker. Then came the call to work in the Trump administration, which gave Price a chance to make good on his long-held wish of dismantling the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
