Courtesy of STAT: HHS Secretary Tom Price is headed before the Senate Finance committee to testify about his boss’s budget plans. President Trump’s proposed 2018 budget includes massive cuts to the agencies housed under HHS, including a 17 percent cut to the CDC, a 31 percent cut to the FDA, and an 18 percent cut to the NIH. Price defended similar cuts in Trump's initial budget proposal, citing "indirect expenses." Watch the June 8th hearing here at 9:45am EST.
