The president’s health secretary says the Obama administration’s health care overhaul is “a work in progress.
Health and Human Services chief Kathleen Sebelius says President Barack Obama remains committed to a plan that would provide health care for all Americans. She says the status quo is unacceptable and she is waiting to see the final version of legislation Congress produces — already several plans are being worked on.
Sebelius says Obama’s plan would increase competition among insurers and would not limit people’s choices.
She says costs must be contained and any overhaul must be paid for.
She was interviewed Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
