Gov. Sebelius Fights for Chief Health Spot

Ad Feedback

Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius told a Senate committee, Thursday, she's not aware of any reason why she shouldn't be confirmed as secretary of health and human services.

Sebelius did not address her tax problems that came to light this week, but did tell members of the Senate Finance Committee she's well aware of the challenges facing the next secretary and vowed to make health reform her mission.

"Healthcare reform cannot wait, it must not wait, it will not wait another year," she said. "Inaction is not an option. The status quo is unacceptable and unsustainable."

Despite her promises, Sebelius has come under fire by pro-life groups for vetoing abortion clinic regulations, along with a bill to curb late-term abortions in Kansas.

Wendy Wright with Concerned Women for America is among those who have criticized the governor. Click play for her comments on the Sebelius appointment.
