Dear Ambassador Rice and Director Donovan:
WASHINGTON, DC—Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) today decried the proposed allocations for labor, health and education programs, which were opposed by all Democrats on the Appropriations Committee. DeLauro is the senior Democrat on the Labor-Health and Human Services-Education Appropriations Subcommittee.
Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman.
“Welcome Madam Secretary. Thank you for joining us. And thank you for all you have done, and are continuing to do, to implement the Affordable Care Act, a transformative law for American families. Before we begin, I want to make three important points to help guide our conversation this morning, and to set the record straight.
I’d like to thank Chairman Kingston and Ranking Member DeLauro and welcome Secretary Sebelius. I apologize for arriving late, but I was in a meeting with the Ukrainian Prime Minister and there is another hearing with Secretary Hagel.
