The senate has nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell who is about to become the health secretary of the United States.
However, there was a trio of Republicans who were against the decision. It was all Obama’s choice and carried his imprimatur on it. Burwell is used to working diligently with both Republicans and Democrats.
Her job as health secretary will be a smooth ride alright. The confirmation is all set to occur in June. Hopes are high that the replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell will be a Godsend for the Obama government.
This is especially expected to be so regarding Obamacare. There is only one Republican who has vowed that he will vote against Burwell. The rest are all with her on this one.
The previous plans for Obamacare met several hurdles along the way. Firstly, the HealthCare.gov site ended up in a fix with the online forums for enrollment being the victims of a glitch in the system. That kept the government role in the process merely nominal.
Republicans tripped up the flow that was supposed to guide the implemented healthcare plan. The result was that there was chaos on a scale unseen hitherto.
Yet with the nomination and future workability of Burwell, the collective health of the citizens of the United States is to undergo a radical shift towards the preventive and care-based.
Every man, woman and child will receive the best in medical insurance and health coverage. The scheme that she will implement will benefit all without any distinction of race, creed, gender or class.
And that will be a good thing for it will prove once and for all that President Obama means well despite some errors he may have committed along the way.
