On Tuesday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price correctly lambasted the media for failing to notice the diversity among the 13 straight white male senators recently tasked to work on healthcare.

The idea was “absolutely offensive,” Price said on The Mike Gallagher Show — and boy, was he right.

Below are the 13 senators recently chosen by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to be in a healthcare working group. Sure, there’s no women or people of color tasked to work on a bill that would disproportionately affect the communities they represent, and three of them are named John.

But there’s plenty of diversity among these men — and diversity is what makes this Senate great.

See! With such a diverse group of white men deciding the future of predominantly women and people of color’s access to competent health care, there’s no way they could mess this up.
