The IAM and more than 80 labor and community organizations strongly oppose the choice of U.S. Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) to become Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary.
The stated mission of HHS is to “enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans.” But rather than promote the interests of all, Price has consistently promoted the interests of the well-to-do and the well connected at the expense of the vast majority of Americans. In fact, Price has fought to weaken the very programs that he has been nominated to oversee.
“Tom Price is clearly the wrong person to oversee our nation’s health,” said IAM International President Bob Martinez. “Among his radical positions is the a desire to privatize Medicare, which would end the healthcare guarantee for more than 57 million seniors and put at risk medical care to our country’s most vulnerable patients.”
Call the Senate switchboard at 202-224-3120 and ask to speak with your Senator and tell them to oppose the confirmation of Tom Price as Health and Human Services Secretary.
Sign a petition urging legislators to oppose the nomination of Tom Price to be the HHS secretary.
Trump campaigned on the promise that he wasn’t going to make changes to Medicare. His pick of Price to head the HHS sends a very different message to America’s working families.
