Senator explains his vote against Sebelius
Sen. Jon Kyl said he voted against Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be secretary of Health and Human Services because of her support for research comparing the effectiveness of different medical treatments for a specific disease. "She left me with no assurance that HHS, federal healthcare programs, or any new entity—such as the Federal Coordinating Council—will not use comparative effectiveness research as a tool to deny care. And this should be a matter of concern to all of us," the Arizona Republican said in a statement.
