House Republican Policy Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) issued the following statement in recognition of President's Day.
"The preservation of our nation's precious freedoms requires courageous leadership and a bold vision. Today we pause to honor those who have served this nation and helped to defend the promise of America," said Chairman Price. "In particular, we remember the lives and legacies of President Washington and President Lincoln -- two individuals who never tired in the face of tremendous adversity and fought to place the survival of liberty and the dream of America above all else. Their firm belief in America's founding principles, its promise, and a deep appreciation for American Exceptionalism gave these leaders the courage to see through the darkness of war and national struggle and to a brighter future. Their devotion has been an inspiration to other strong leaders and presidents throughout our history who have taken up the mantle of liberty and have made America strong, prosperous, and a beacon of freedom for the world."
