Unhealthy – Governor Sebelius

Pro-Lifers Make Eleventh Hour Effort to Derail Sebelius Nomination

A Senate panel is scheduled to vote Tuesday on the bid of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as health and human services secretary. But pro-life activists are making an eleventh-hour push to derail her nomination.

Team Sarah, an online community of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin supporters, urged its members Monday to “flood the phone lines” of Senate Finance Committee members to voice their opposition to her confirmation to the HHS post.

“This act will alert the Senate Finance Committee to the reality of major public dissent and controversy surrounding the Governor’s confirmation,” the group, which claims over 68,000 members, tells supporters in “Not on My Watch” campaign materials.

The Senate Finance Committee is expected to vote on Sebelius’ nomination during a break session in Tuesday’s roundtable discussion on Reforming America’s Health Care Delivery System. The panel is expected to confirm her nomination and send it to the full Senate for consideration.

Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council, sent an e-mail blast to supporters Monday, urging them to contact their senators and ask them to vote against her confirmation.
