Sebelius Champions Benefits of Health Care Reform Law
In a Politico opinion piece, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius outlines how consumers have benefited from the health care reform law since it was signed into law a year ago. She notes, "President Barack Obama has made clear that his administration is willing to work with anyone to improve the law and fix what needs fixing." However, she adds, "What we can't afford to do is take away these benefits, cancel these rights and return to the days when insurance accompanies got between you and your doctor." She concludes, "If we want to relieve the burden of rising health care costs on families, businesses and government, we need to move forward not back."
