Obama Administration Vows to Defend Health Care Reform

Friday, November 05, 2010

Now that the election is over, congressional Republicans are vowing to repeal President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. But administration officials are defending the benefits of the law. 

Speaking in Brooklyn on Friday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says Republicans need to consider how they're going to roll back popular provisions that have already been implemented.

"We look forward to having that conversation, but in the meantime this is the law, and we fully intend to continue to implement the provisions that really help put some health care choices back in the hands of consumers," Sebelius said.

She was joined today by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who says he hopes to work with the new Republican leadership in the House in pursuing what he believes is a "non-partisan" issue of fighting health care fraud.
