Statement from HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on House Budget Committee Mark Up Action on Health Reform Legislation
The progress made in the House Budget Committee is good news for health reform and the millions of Americans who are victims of the worst abuses of the insurance companies. Across the country, Americans have seen their health insurance premiums skyrocket or been denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions. Health care costs are crushing business, family, and government budgets. And without action, we know these problems will only get worse. Today, the Budget Committee took an important step forward toward reform.
