Sanders grills Tom Price, nominee to head HHS
That is, the Health and Human Services Department. Sanders asks if Price will commit to providing every American with health coverage. Price responds that every American will have access to the best healthcare in the world. Sanders responds that access is not coverage, for Sanders has access to a buying a $10 million home but can't afford it. So basically Price's view is in line with Ayn Rand; if you can afford something it's because you deserve it, if not you don't because you're lazy. Sanders also asked Price if he would fulfill Twamp's promise to not cut Medicare or Medicaid. But we already know that Price in Congress has passionately worked to do just that.
