Obama Nominates Kathleen Sebelius Secretary of Health & Human Services

By GLloyd Rowsey

Kathleen Sebelius (born on May 15, 1948) is...currently serving as the 44th Governor of Kansas. She is the second female governor of Kansas...and...(s)he is President Barack Obama's choice to be the next Secretary of Health and Human Services.

::::::::

On February 28, 2009, it was reported that Kathleen Sebelius had accepted Barak Obama's nomination for the position of Secretary of Health and Human Services.  On March 2, 2009, Barack Obama officially announced Governor Sebelius as his nominee.  Though she is expected to be confirmed, anti-abortion advocates have already begun to denounce the appointment and pro-life members in the Senate are most likely to be her main opposition.  Moreover, she has alienated much of the Health Insurance industry in Kansas.

Judging from her record and from this oppostion, Ms. Sebelius will make an even more effective Secretary of H&HS than Howard Dean would have.

-

Call your Senators here to support Kathleen.

*(Apparently OEN carried an article similar to this one in February or earlier this month.  Considering the interest in public health, not to mention insurance rip-offs and fraud, on March 27, 2009, it is urgently important that readers follow the link I provided above and telephone their Senators in support of Ms. Sebelius.)  



Submitters Bio:
I have a law degree (Stanford, 66') but have never practiced. Instead, from 1967 through 1977, I tried to contribute to the revolution in America. As unsuccessful as everyone else over that decade, in 1978 I went to work for the U.S. Forest Service in San Francisco as a Clerk-Typist, GS-4. I was active in the USFS's union for several years, including a brief stint as editor of The Forest Service Monitor, the nationwide voice of the Forest Service in the National Federation of Federal Employees. Howsoever, I now believe my most important contribution while editor of the F.S.M. was bringing to the attention of F.S. employees the fact that the Black-Footed Ferret was not extinct; one had been found in 1980 on a national forest in the Colorado. In 2001 I retired from the USFS after attaining the age of 60 with 23 years of service. Stanford University was evidently unimpressed with my efforts to make USFS investigative reports of tort claim incidents available to tort claimants (ie, "the public"), alleging the negligence of a F.S. employee acting in the scope of his/her duties caused their damages, under the Freedom of Information Act. Oh well. What'cha gonna do?
