U.S. Senator Roy Blunt Airs Concerns to Health and Human Services Secretary

(MISSOURINET) –  U.S. Senator Roy Blunt – the top Republican on a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee – criticized the Biden Administration’s pandemic response.

During a budget hearing with Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary (zay·vee·ur buh·seh·ruh) Xavier Becerra, the senator said it makes no sense to lift a policy that sends migrants back to their home country during a public health crisis – while keeping mask mandates in place.

In his remarks, Mr. Blunt did find some common ground regarding mental health in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
