Paul Ryan’s top aide is a former Obama administration health policy official who’s now running a health policy think tank, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.
The Washington Examiner’s Philip Bump reports.
The source: “The White House, House GOP: Ryan aide named as top aide in House health policy initiative.”
Paul Ryan’s aide, Mike Murphy, was confirmed to be the new chief of staff to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
The Wall Street Review of Books reported earlier Monday that Murphy will be in charge of the House’s new health policy team, and was previously a health aide to Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
Murphy has worked in both the Obama and Trump administrations.
