Tell your Senators: End the Partisan Attacks on Kathleen Sebelius

Governor Kathleen Sebelius - President Obama's highly qualified nominee to serve as Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) - urgently needs your support.

Partisan politicians and anti-choice extremists are threatening to block her nomination simply because she has taken positions to protect women's health.

Governor Sebelius' 20 years of experience as a public servant in Kansas makes her highly qualified to oversee the nation's health care programs as HHS Secretary.

Her history of fiscally responsible governance and bipartisan problem-solving are precisely what our country needs as we reform our broken health care system.

This, coupled with her record on protecting the health and safety of the public, makes her an outstanding candidate for HHS Secretary.

Letter to
U.S. Senate
I strongly urge you to confirm Governor Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Governor Sebelius's record on fiscal responsibility, bipartisanship, and consensus building is urgently needed as our country seeks to reform a broken health care system. Her dedication to the health and well-being of women and families, along with her proven ability to contain health care costs while streamlining health systems, shows she can lead us in the right direction: more access to better care that families can afford.

HHS urgently needs a qualified leader, especially as we face public health emergencies such as the swine flu outbreak and as we begin to grapple with the larger challenge of reforming our health care system.

Americans value competent and qualified leaders. Help put us on the right track for providing quality, affordable health care for all by confirming Kathleen Sebelius as HHS Secretary.
