Gov. Scott to meet Tuesday with Trump's pick to repeal and replace Obamacare

Gov. Rick Scott will be in Washington on Tuesday to meet with Rep. Tom Price, whom President-elect Trump has picked as his health secretary.

Scott, whose opposition to Obamacare drove him into politics, will offer his thoughts on how to repeal the 2010 law, a spokeswoman said. The meeting is set for the afternoon.

Price is an orthopedic surgeon from Georgia who has offered his own plans. If confirmed he would oversee one of the GOP's main objectives -- a task that while popular among Republicans will be difficult given the complexity of Obamacare.
