Wyden Statement on the Resignation of HHS Secretary Tom Price

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued the following statement after Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Tom Price announced his resignation:

“Throughout his brief time leading the Department of Health and Human Services, Tom Price has repeatedly abused the public trust and betrayed the agency’s mission to improve Americans’ health care,” Wyden said. “I hope that his resignation will mark the beginning of a new chapter for the Trump administration’s health care agenda. Tom Price’s replacement needs to be focused on implementing the law as written by Congress and keeping the president’s promise to bring down the high cost of prescription drugs.”
