Obamacare no longer a political debate, Sebelius says

Though House Republicans and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, clearly think otherwise, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius contends that the Affordable Care Act is no longer a political debate. "It's what we call the law," she said at a conference last weekend in Kansas City, Mo. "It was passed by the United States Congress. It was signed into law by the president in March of 2010. It was upheld by the Supreme Court in July of 2012. The president was re-elected. It's the law."
