Tom Price ducked.

In a heated exchange with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in his confirmation hearing on Wednesday, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), Trump’s choice for Secretary of Health and Human Services, avoided a direct question over whether he believes that health care is a right for all Americans.


“Congressman Price, the United States of America is the only major country on Earth that does not guarantee health care to all people as a right. Canada does it, every major country in Europe does it.” Sanders said to Price. “Do you believe that health care is a right of all Americans, whether they are rich or they are poor?”

Price did not answer the question.
