@tedcruz Tell us, superstar:
Your daddy's HHS Secretary (Alex Azar, a non-scientist himself) put a labradoodle breeder, Brian Harrison, in charge of the agency's COVID-19 response.
A labradoodle breeder.
What did he do -
Tell the virus to heel?
Or make sure that it crapped outside?
@mmpadellan@tedcruz Is Alex Azar a scientist? No he's a lawyer. Tom Price was a doctor but treated his job like a personal concierge. Sylvia Burwell has no science degree. Kathleen Sebelius was a Governor no science. You don't argue very well. Did you ever win a case in court?
@tedcruz 1. HHS Secretary doesn't perform surgery.
2. Alex Azar wasn't a scientist and I didn't hear this complaint from you then.
3. It's Becerra, not Bacerra. At least learn to spell correctly the name of the person you're finding bullshit reasons to vote against.
I know you know this, @tedcruz, but you voted to confirm Alex Azar, Trump's HHS secretary, who is also a lawyer.
And, no, I would not hire you to remove my appendix, 'cause you might flee to Cancun just when I needed you to do your job. https://t.co/DGJSdACDo7
NEW: Citing apparent contradictions between separations testimony by Alex Azar and @NBCNews / DOJ IG reports, @EnergyCommerce asks Azar to clarify: "Given this... and your failure to answer the questions outlined in our [9/17] letter, we have additional concerns about your role." https://t.co/LxRJjewkjb
@tedcruz Dear Cancun Cruz,
You voted for Alex Azar to run HHS. Azar is an attorney by training. He did have experience raising drug prices at Lilly, not sure that’s the HHS objective.
PS, you also voted for Carson to lead HUD. His relevant experience was once living in an apartment.
So you admit even though Alex Azar was "just a lawyer," he was qualified because his legal work centered on health care.
That is also true of Xavier Becerra, whose litigation as CA AG centered on patient rights and insurance law. You can't say one is qualified but not the other. https://t.co/n5IqHnfb3p
@tedcruz You supported a carnival-barking clown to lead the country, Jared Kushner (not a scientist) to head up a pandemic, Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary, Ben Carson, Rick Perry, Alex Azar and many others who were UNQUALIFIED Trump appointees. So stop with the hypocritical bullsh*t. https://t.co/UlQLw46T1r
@DanRather Republicans had no problem confirming Betsy DeVos, Alex Azar, & Ben Carson for positions they weren’t remotely qualified for, but they are very concerned about the qualifications of Biden's nominees.
Without hypocrisy, Republicans would have no values at all. https://t.co/jdUEkIYiyn
@SenTedCruz Alex Azar remember him? Look Cruz, your day in the sun is over. The people finally know what you are all about. I am running for US Congress in PA's 15th. The people of Texas will never re-elect you at this point. If they do, then they are deserving of your incompetence.
First, almost none of the Health Secretaries since the position was established were doctors. Including the last one, Alex Azar, who was a lawyer, and who you confirmed.
Second, we already *have* a doctor advising on the pandemic: Dr. Anthony Fauci. And you've been ignoring him! https://t.co/8OgXdmMcmN
@tedcruz Ted, will you admit that Pence and Kudlow had no healthcare experience?
And that 500K died as a result of that incompetence and arrogance?
And then will you admit that Alex Azar was NOT in his position to help people... (See attached and weep) https://t.co/e27ndRK6lV
In a March 2020 email to Alex Azar, former DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen recommended a corporation specializing in rapid DNA technology that DHS had used to conduct DNA testing at the border.
@SenTedCruz Ted, will you admit that Pence and Kudlow had no healthcare experience?

@KevinMKruse Trump's 1st HHS Sec'y(Dr.Tom Price) was also a member of AAPS which was against socialized medicine & made some unscientific claims (autism =vaccines).
Alex Azar, while at Eli Lilly, jacked up the price of insulin & was involved in a lawsuit for that price increase (more profit).
