February 10, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) today released the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Dr. Tom Price as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services:

“I applaud the Senate for voting to confirm my friend and colleague, Tom Price, as Secretary of Health and Human Services. For years, Dr. Price and I have worked together on the Ways and Means Committee to improve our nation’s health care system for Americans of all walks of life. I look forward to continuing our efforts in his new role. He’s just the partner and leader we need at HHS to deliver on our promise to the American people: access to quality, affordable health care. We’re ready to work with the Trump Administration to provide much-needed relief from Obamacare and move forward with commonsense health care reforms.”
