HHS Secretary Margaret Heckler

Margaret Heckler speaking after taking oath: "Mr. President, Mr. Vice President, Madame Justice and my family today are sharing a very special moment. I say the glory and honor of this moment belongs to the Lord who made it possible for me to be here. Indeed the strength that I will call upon in fulfilling the oath, again will be his strength. This is an exciting day for me, Mr. President and for my family. Because on my first day as a new member of Congress, two colleagues stood behind me, and one said to the other, "How did this secretary get into the Congress?" And the other colleague said, "She was elected. She defeated Joseph Martin." And now I find that being called a secretary, that I will have the great honor of my life to be Madame Secretary, the Secretary of HHS. Mr. President, I cannot express my gratitude to you, and my desire to indeed symbolize the compassion and caring I know you feel for the American people. In a sense, as a member of Congress, I saw your prescription for America and indeed I could call you, Dr. Reagan, because I believe the medicine is working. Indeed, although we enjoy spring in Washington, in a sense, we are enjoying the beginning of a harvest of economic wisdom that you have so wisely shared without government and with the American people. But there are still people in need, and they will be my special concerns as Secretary of the people's department of the Government. In the serving the people in the Congress for all these years, I will upon draw upon that Congressional experience, and will serve you and the nation with that same spirit. I will do everything in my power to make you and the nation proud that a woman has been nominated to head this important department. As awesome as the task is, the resources of the good Lord and your own leadership are unlimited. I draw upon them and thank you for making this moment possible." Heckler hugs U.S. Pres. Ronald Reagan.
