US President-elect Donald Trump Picks Seema Verma for an important role in his Administration

New York, November 29, 2016: US President-elect Donald Trump selected on Monday a second Indian American, Seema Verma, for a high-level position in his administration, assigning her “to the dream team that will transform our healthcare system”.

NewsGram brings to you current foreign news from all over the world.

As the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, she will play a crucial role in carrying out the high-priority Trump campaign promise of scrapping President Barack Obama’s health care programme and replacing it with “something better.”

Last week Trump announced that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will be the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, a cabinet-level post.

Although Verma’s job is not of cabinet rank now, it has great political importance and she will be in the national spotlight because of the Republican vow to end and replace Obama’s signature healthcare reform, which attempted to make affordable health insurance available to all.

NewsGram brings to you top news around the world today.

She will be working with Congressman Tom Price, the House Budget Committee Chairman, who is to become the Secretary of Health and Human Services, a cabinet-level position.

Announcing his intent to nominate them, Trump said: “Together, Chairman Price and Seema Verma are the dream team that will transform our healthcare system for the benefit of all Americans.”

About Verma, Trump said: “She has decades of experience advising on Medicare and Medicaid policy and helping states navigate our complicated systems.”
