Washington, DC — In response to Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) serving as Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, Protect Our Executive Director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement:
“Senator Ron Wyden has spent his entire career taking on powerful special interests on behalf of Americans and is a true health care champion in every sense of the phrase. Senator Wyden understands the vital importance of preserving and improving Medicare, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act. Senator Wyden spent the last four years as a staunch defender of American health care against the war launched by President Trump and his Republican colleagues. And Senator Wyden has been a leader in working to address one of the biggest health care problems facing Americans today — skyrocketing drug prices.
“There is little doubt that with Senator Wyden at the helm of the powerful Senate Finance Committee that Americans will soon benefit from better, more affordable health care. We look forward to working with Senator Wyden to make that a reality.”
