Senate Finance Committee Democrats holding up Rep. Price, Mnuchin nominations

Senate Democrats are stalling a committee vote on whether to refer Health and Human Services Secretary Nominee Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) for a full Senate vote, having declined to attend the committee meeting that would have launched him to that point in the confirmation process – and, like those of us at Tea Party Patriots, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) is not amused…

The Hill has the details:

Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee boycotted votes to advance Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), Trump’s pick to head the Department of Health and Human Services, and Steven Mnuchin, his selection to head the Treasury Department. The pair had been among some of the more contentious selections to join Trump’s Cabinet.

Republicans expressed outrage at the move, while Democrats gathered outside the Senate Finance Committee hearing room to outline their gripes with the selections.

“I can’t understand why senators, who know we’re going to have these two people go through, can’t support the committee,” said Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).

Democrats need to show up and vote for President Trump’s nominees! Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) has the policy and medical expertise needed to determine what works and what doesn’t when it comes to repealing Obamacare and a record of listening to the concerns and feedback of his constituents.
