Chairman Chabot Statement on Senate Confirmation of Tom Price as HHS Secretary
WASHINGTON - House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) made the following statement after the U.S. Senate confirmed Congressman Tom Price as the 23rd Secretary of Health and Human Services.
“Since Dr. Price first arrived in Congress, he has been a dear friend, indispensable colleague and one of the leading conservative voices on health care policy,” said Chairman Chabot. “As a physician and as a legislator, Tom has always put the care and wellness of patients first and foremost in everything he does. Secretary Price also understands that Obamacare has been an unmitigated disaster for America’s 28 million small businesses. Our Committee looks forward to working with him as we repeal and replace this unworkable, unaffordable law so we can provide the American people with quality, affordable health insurance.”
