Press Release

WASHINGTON—Congressman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement regarding President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services:

“Tom Price is an outstanding thinker, legislator, and conservative leader who has dedicated his life to the field of medicine.  He knows first-hand how decisions in Washington affect patients and health care providers back at home, and he has been a tireless advocate in Congress for patient-centered health care reforms.  I couldn’t think of a better person to head the Department of Health and Human Services and to lead the charge to fix our nation’s health care challenges.  President-elect Trump’s decision to nominate Dr. Price speaks volumes about the team he is putting together to lead this country.  I couldn’t be more proud of my friend and colleague, and I wish him and his family the best in this next chapter.”
