Daschle brings effective bipartisan leadership to the Department of Health and Human Services.

We believe that he will work collectively with key stakeholders to provide a comprehensive national health care reform benefiting all Americans.

"President-elect Obama has made a courageous stance in nominating former Majority Leader Tom Daschle.
