The United Steelworkers (USW) today heartily endorsed President Obama’s selection of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to become the new Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).
USW International president Leo W. Gerard said that her nomination is another example of how intent the new Administration is on addressing issues critical to America’s working families. “As both Governor of Kansas and its insurance commissioner prior, Ms. Sebelius has demonstrated a keen perception of the struggles confronting ordinary Americans,” said Gerard. “She knows change is needed and we stand confident in her ability to play an active role in revamping the health care system. Her experience provides her with an in-depth understanding of the complexities of heath care and insurance issues.” Click here for more.
