Final Project Source Notes (15)

Posted by mattieliz on February 20, 2009

Source Notes (15): Okay, How About Sebelius for HHS, Then?

Title: Okay, How About Sebelius for HHS, Then?

Summary: As some of us may have already heard, Tom Daschle stepped down from taking the open position as the White House’s Health and Human Services Secretary on February 3, 2009. As of February 18, 2009, The New York Times has reported that Mr. Barack Obama has chosen Kathleen Sebelius, governor of Kansas, to fill the open position as HHS secretary.

Topic: Universal health care

Category: Citizen (commentator)

What is it?: A blog about health care on the website, change.org.

Publication information: http://change.org, February 18, 2009, New York, NY.

Author: Timothy Foley

Location:

http://healthcare.change.org/blog/view/ok_how_about_sebelius_for_hhs_then

Accessed: February 19, 2009

Support:

Tom Daschle, former U.S. senator of South Dakota; Howard Dean, former governor of Vermont and possible candidate for HHS secretary of the White House; Kathleen Sebelius, governor of Kansas and possible candidate for HHS secretary of the White House; John Kerry, former presidential nominee of the Democratic Party in 2004; Barack Obama, president.

Three of the people listed above are or were candidates of the open position of HHS secretary of the White House. Kathleen Sebelius recieved strong consideration for VP by both John Kerry and Barack Obama.

Audience and Agenda: Timothy Foley has been an online organizer and blogger on health care policy for the Obama for America campaign (during the primaries) and currently for a labor union for intern and resident doctors. His views on this blog are completely his own opinions and are open to the public to comment freely upon.

Usefulness: It’s nice to see one side of this controversial issue. Obviously Foley is a supporter of universal health care and the new stimulus package Mr. Obama has just signed, but I am curious to see what the other side of the fence (republicans) believe.
