HHS's Price: Senate Must Do 'What Gets Us to 50 Votes'

CNBC's "Squawk Box"

By    |   Wednesday, 26 Jul 2017 04:59 PM

Tom Price, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, said Senate Republicans must keep the drive toward repealing and replacing Obamacare alive by aiming for the "lowest common denominator."

"What we need to do in the Senate is figure out what the lowest common denominator is, what gets us to 50 votes so that we can move forward on a healthcare reform legislation because that's what needs to happen . . . the status quo isn't working for folks out there in the real world, so the Senate needs to act," Price told Wednesday's CNBC "Squawk Box."

"Legislation is one step at a time. And so we'll see what the next step is, and we'll move on from there."

President Donald Trump joked at a Boy Scout event Tuesday he would fire Price if the vote to repeal Obamacare fails.
