Rep. Black Statement on President Trump’s Visit to Tennessee
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06), Chairman of the House Budget Committee and member of the House Ways and Means Committee, released the following statement on President Trump’s planned visit to Nashville, Tennessee later today:
“Tennessee is ground zero for the damage of Obamacare, and it is fitting that President Trump would come here to talk about the urgent need to bring relief from this failed law, said Congressman Diane Black. “I regret that I will not be able to join the President this evening, as I will instead be preparing for tomorrow’s House Budget Committee markup of legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, but I have been fortunate to meet with him twice within the last week and I know that he shares House Republicans’ commitment to patient-centered reforms. I will be watching from Washington D.C. tonight as the President discusses these solutions in Nashville, and I look forward to our continued partnership on improving access to care for every American.”
While Congressman Black remains in Washington D.C. preparing for tomorrow’s House Budget Committee markup of legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, her husband, Dr. David Black, will join President Trump at his visit to The Hermitage today in Congressman Black’s place.
Congressman Diane Black represents Tennessee’s 6th Congressional District. A nurse for more than 40 years, she serves as Chairman of the House Budget Committee and a member of the Ways and Means Committee.
