Cicilline Statement on Resignation of HHS Secretary Tom Price

Friday, September 29, 2017

PAWTUCKET – Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement today:

“President Trump promised to drain the swamp. But today, yet another of his top officials has resigned in disgrace.”

“Enough is enough. Republicans in Congress have given Donald Trump and his administration a blank check to do whatever they want. It’s long past time for them to work with Democrats to conduct real oversight that prevents this type of abuse. Looking the other way cannot be tolerated a single moment longer.”

“For his part, Secretary Price needs to repay taxpayers for the full cost of the private jets he chartered over the last few months. Partial repayments are not enough to erase the damage he has done.”
