Dec 3, 2012 Issues: Health

GALLATIN, TN – The GOP Doctors Caucus announced that Rep. Diane Black, R.N., (TN-6) will serve as Vice Chair, a position previously held by Dr. Phil Roe, M.D., (TN-1) who will serve as the Caucus Co-Chair for the 113th Congress.  

“It is an honor to be selected as the next Vice Chair of the House GOP Doctors Caucus,” Black said. “I look forward to working with my fellow healthcare professionals to roll back the government takeover of our healthcare system. The new healthcare law is already increasing costs and long-term deficits while decreasing quality and choice. As a registered nurse for more than 40 years, I am fully committed to advancing patient-centered healthcare reforms focused on increasing affordability, access, and choice.”
