Cole Statement on HHS Secretary Price Resignation
September 30, 2017
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price's resignation.
"I respect the decision Secretary Price made," said Cole. "He did the right thing for the Administration and for his family."
"However, it is hard to lose such an important figure at this critical time. Natural disasters always create a health care crises in their wake. That is especially true with respect to Puerto Rico, where the devastation makes it difficult to provide for our citizens with even the most basic health care services."
"While I have great confidence in the professional staff at HHS, I think it is important to get a new secretary to lead the department as quickly as possible."
