Rep. Price to Deliver Keynote on Budget at 3 PM (Video)

UPDATE: Archived video of the event is below.

At 3:00 P.M. today, Rep. Tom Price will deliver a keynote address at the Brookings Institution on reforms of the budgetary process.

Price is, of course, Chairman of the House Budget Committee and has been focusing his committee hearings on reforming that arcane process for some time. Given the incoming unified Republican government, his prescriptions have a better than even chance of being filled.

After his speech, the question-and-answer segment is likely to turn to the government’s plans for Obamacare, given his recent nomination as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

With a huge influence on both the federal budget and healthcare policy, Dr. Price has become one of Georgia’s most powerful voices in Washington since Speaker Gingrich.

The prepared remarks are included below in the comment section.
