Sebelius delivers defense of health insurance reform
Former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius offered praise Tuesday night for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's decision to sign into state law a bill delivering quality, secure healthcare to all residents of Massachusetts. Sebelius, in her job as secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is a central player in implementation of the Affordable Care Act adopted in Obama's first term. She declared transformation of medical insurance in the United States a good thing "now matter who you are, what state of life you're in." Her speech was as much a briefing on the law's details as it was an appeal for support from those at the convention.
