Sebelius expects challenge to health care law

MANHATTAN, Kan. | Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says she fully expects the U.S. House to pass a bill to repeal the health care reform law.

But Sebelius said today during a Landon Lecture at Kansas State University that she thinks the law will withstand a challenge.

The former Kansas governor says she is used to working with Republicans and looks forward to working with the House and others to implement the new law.

Sebelius says she has not spoken to Republican Gov.-elect Sam Brownback about the law or his opposition to it. Brownback has vowed to do the bare minimum as governor to implement the law and says he will resist changes as often as possible.
