The Republican Right Wing is dangerous to our country's health and welfare and they need to be stopped.  Why?  Because of their actions, during the outbreak of what could be the most important epidemic of our generation, we do not have a confirmed Secretary of Health and Human Services.

What to do? Reports indicate that the full Senate is scheduled to vote on Sebelius' nomination this Tuesday.  But we've seen these reports before and they've been followed by inaction.
