The Senate is to begin debating Kathleen Sebelius’ nomination for secretary of health and human services, with a vote to come as early as today. The two-term Kansas governor’s supporters are likely to highlight the swine flu outbreak as a reason to quickly fill the position, though 18 top HHS positions will still remain unfilled. Sebelius is under fire for her views on national health care and ties to the abortion industry, particularly the notorious late-term abortionist George Tiller. Nevertheless, her confirmation is expected because a critical mass of Republicans support her.
