HHS Secretary Sebelius Asks ‘What Would Teddy Do?’ On Reform
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius asked Thursday on a visit to a wellness center in Washington "What would Teddy Do?" on health care reform, ABC News reports.
"'Hopefully, at every step of the way, people will ask themselves: "What would Teddy do?" and move it forward,' (Sebelius said)."
"Sebelius, a co-chair of Kennedy's 1980 presidential campaign in Kansas, is the latest Democrat who is hoping that Kennedy's influence in death may be even stronger than it was when he was alive as Democrats push for President Obama's top domestic priority. Democratic officials hope that invoking Kennedy's passion for the issue will counter slippage in support for health care reform" (Davis, 8/28).
