America Choosing Health Care Reform Over Religious Right Impotence

That's what the nomination of Kathleen Sebelius is coming down to.

Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius will testify on Thursday before the Senate Finance Committee, and committee Chairman Max Baucus said he expected her to get the job.

"I think she should be confirmed," Baucus said.

Sebelius will seek to guide the $2.5 trillion U.S. healthcare system toward a new model in which the government plays a role in making health insurance accessible to every American, lowers costs and makes sure even the sickest are covered.

The needs of America's citizens to get quality, affordable and as universal as possible health care far trumps the ego stroking of the religious far right like Tony Perkins and their fringe ilk.
