New York, Nov 29: US President-elect Dold 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”. 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 Caroli Governor Nikki Haley will be the United States Ambassador to the United tions, 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 tiol spotlight because of the Republican vow to end and replace Obama’s sigture healthcare reform, which attempted to make affordable health insurance available to all. 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.(IANS)
