During a two hour session in the Senate Finance Committee witness chair, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, on Wednesday, parried many queries and quietly listened to others. The Republicans were ferocious in their opposition of the nation’s controversial health care law. They challenged Sebelius’s honesty and pushed for her resignation. They even demanded, unsuccessfully though, that she admit that the President had consciously misled the people about his Signature domestic health care program. All Republicans have voted against the law. They paid attention only to the program’s faulty website, heavy costs, security concerns, policy cancellations and other such problems.
Sebelius, however stated that she hoped that the people would understand the health care options available to them including the benefit and the opportunities that come with it. She offered very few concessions and stated that the law has passed both the houses of the Congress, signed by the president and upheld by the highest court of the nation. She also said that the Web portal is able to handle larger volumes now with fewer errors.
