Ahead of Rep. Tom Price’s nomination hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee today, American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:
“The only difference between Donald Trump and Tom Price, his pick for HHS Secretary, is that Trump made billions by hurting American workers and Price made mere millions by hurting American workers.
“Beyond that, Price has possibly already broken laws meant to keep Members of Congress from profiting off their government jobs — Trump has only dreamed of making money from the presidency. Both Price and Trump would take away health care from millions of Americans. And Trump and Price both would defund Planned Parenthood and take away vital women’s health services that protect lives.
“With Donald Trump and Tom Price in charge, you can be sure they looked for every opportunity to make a buck while systematically weakening Americans’ health care.”
