Life or death (part 1)


altHHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Aug. 16, 2009

"I think it's really horrific that some opponents of the health reform bill have used painful personal moments to scare people about what is in the bill. nothing could be further from the truth that there's somehow a death panel. if anything seniors should welcome the fact that doctors would have a payment provided to sit down with family members if they choose and have a discussion."


Sebelius, May 5, 2011

"If you run out of the government voucher and then you run out of your own money, you're left to scrape together charity care, go without care, die sooner. There really aren't a lot of options."
