House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement applauding the confirmation of Rep. Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) as the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“Dr. Price is the HHS Secretary Americans need. Anyone who has had the honor of working with him knows that he listens as well as he leads, dedicating his career to restoring the American people’s voice and their access to quality, affordable health care. I’ll miss collaborating with him in the House, but as we work towards people-first, 21st Century health care, there’s no one I trust more to lead our effort at HHS than Dr. Price. Congratulations to a dear friend and colleague.
