WASHINGTON, D.C.–The Hispanic Leadership Fund issued the following statement for its president Mario H. Lopez in response to the U.S. Senate voting to confirm Rep. Tom Price as the next Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services:

“The Hispanic Leadership Fund applauds the confirmation of Rep. Tom Price as the next HHS Secretary.  As a member of Congress and a orthopedic surgeon, Rep. Price understands that Obamacare has been a disaster for working American families, and has been a leader in promoting positive solutions that put patients in charge of their health care decisions.  We look forward to working with him to ensure all Americans have access to high quality, affordable health care.”

The Hispanic Leadership Fund previously sent a letter to the U.S. Senate in support of Rep. Price’s nomination.
