Protect Our Care Statement on Firing of HHS Secretary Tom Price

By September 29, 2017No Comments

Washington, D.C. — Protect Our Care Campaign Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement in response to the firing of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price:

“Tom Price was fired because he was more interested in spending taxpayer money on fancy air travel than helping people get health care. But for all the talk of his chartered flights, the most fireable offenses were his dishonesty in the pursuit of health care repeal and his efforts to put people’s lives at risk by sabotaging the law. Good riddance to Secretary Price — but what we really wish will go with him is the political spitefulness that has undermined the health care of the American people. This is an opportunity for President Trump and Republicans to turn the page, appoint someone untarnished by this administration’s repeal agenda and put people’s health above partisan politics.”
