    Statement from Secretary Price on President Trump’s Address to Congress

    Statement from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Price on President Trump’s Address to Congress



    (February 28, 2017)


    Tonight, President Trump reassured the American people that help is on the way for those who are suffering as a result of the Affordable Care Act. The President called on Congress to repeal the law and replace it with reforms that will expand access to quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans.

    Statement from U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on President Trump’s Speech to Joint Session of Congress

We must simplify the tax code, reduce business tax rates, and make America competitive in the global economy. This administration will end the failed Obama-era policies that have held back economic growth for the last eight years, and unleash the new jobs and higher wages Americans desperately need and deserve.”
