Boozman: Becerra is Unqualified, Too Extreme for HHS Secretary

Written by Press Release

March 18, 2021

WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement on the confirmation of Xavier Becerra to serve as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services in the Biden administration:

“Xavier Becerra’s lack of subject matter expertise was reason enough to be troubled by his nomination. His extreme views on socialized medicine and abortion as well as his past attempts to impede religious liberty rights were further cause for me to oppose his confirmation. Arkansans are rightly concerned by his track record and I share their misgivings about his ability to lead HHS in a fair, non-ideological manner. I intend to join my colleagues in holding him accountable during his tenure at the department.”
