WASHINGTON – Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) today issued the following statement after the Senate confirmed Tom Price to serve as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.
“Tom Price has the experience and leadership qualities necessary to tackle the challenges facing our health care system,” said Thune. “Obamacare has caused premiums and deductibles to skyrocket and patients’ choices to dwindle. Confirming Tom Price will help us fulfill our promise to the American people to repeal Obamacare. I look forward to working with Tom and my colleagues in Congress to replace President Obama’s failed health care law with personalized, patient-centered health care that is affordable for every American.”
