Obama backs public and private healthcare insurance
Kathleen Sebelius, the Obama administration's senior healthcare official, flatly rejected the idea of taking over the nation's medical insurance system. She said the federal government did not want to assume management of healthcare coverage. Sebelius, in her first appearance before Congress since being confirmed as the secretary of Health and Human Services, said the administration wanted a "public plan option" to encourage competition.
