"When the history of the 2012 campaign is written, a special place may be reserved for Kathleen Sebelius, health and human services secretary and former governor of Kansas, who is doing her best to make the Affordable Care Act – aka Obamacare – disappear as a political liability for the president," wrote Washington Post columnist Robert Samuelson. The main evidence he cited was Sebelius' move to "delegate to states the final decision on defining 'essential health benefits' for minimum health insurance coverage," which undermines Republicans' criticism of the health reform as a "one-size-fits-all" straitjacket. As policy rather than politics, though, "Sebelius' approach is dubious," he wrote. That's because "states can't cure uncontrolled health costs. It's a national problem that only the national government can solve."
