WASHINGTON (CBSMiami) – Voting along party lines, the U.S. Senate confirmed Obamacare opponent Tom Price as Health and Human Services Secretary overnight.

Price is a seven-term house member from Georgia. He has proposed repealing the Affordable Care Act and replacing it with tax credits and health savings accounts. Republicans still have no provided a replacement plan if Obamacare is repealed. Price has also supported ending federal payments to Planned Parenthood.

Price’s confirmation comes with a week of contention in the Senate, as Democrats held all night talk-a-thons to protest the nominations of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
