BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. CASEY. Mr. President, I support the nomination of Marilyn Tavenner to be the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, CMS. I strongly support her nomination and was sorry to miss today's vote. I voted for her confirmation in the Finance Committee and would have done so today as well.

It has been over 6 years since CMS has had a confirmed Administrator, and the agency will benefit from having someone with Ms. Tavenner's skills and expertise at the helm. Her experience as the Secretary of Health and Human Resources in Virginia and with the Hospital Corporation of America as well as the time she has already served as Acting Administrator and Principal Deputy Administrator of CMS have prepared her well for the challenges and opportunities she will confront in this position.

I thank her for her willingness to serve at this important time, and I look forward to working with her in the months and years ahead.
