Healthcare Vote Statement
The statement below is from Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, M.D. in response to today’s Senate vote:
“It is the mission of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services to enhance the health and protect the well-being of all Americans, and our Department is wholly committed to this mission. Since day one of the Trump Administration, the team at HHS has taken numerous steps to provide relief to Americans who are reeling from the status quo, and this effort will continue.
“The Trump Administration remains committed to improving our healthcare system so that it better serves the American people. It is our goal to foster a successful, patient-centered healthcare system where Americans have more choices and lower costs, where patients, families and doctors are in charge of medical decisions, and where Washington’s interests take a backseat to patients’ needs.”
