One objection to quick vote on Sebelius
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- A Senate vote on the nomination of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be secretary of Health and Human Services won't take place for two weeks, Democrats say.

At least one Republican senator has objected to a quick floor vote on the Sebelius nomination, forcing the Senate to wait until after the congressional recess to take up the matter, The Washington Times reported Friday.

It wasn't clear, the newspaper said, whether the objection had to do with policy.

Members of the Senate Finance Committee peppered Sebelius with dozens of questions Thursday, none of them related to tax problems. The Obama administration revealed earlier this week that Sebelius had failed to pay $7,000 in taxes on time.

The Kansas governor said her tax violations were the result of "unintentional errors" that were related to mistakes resulting from the sale of a home and charitable contributions.

During the hearing, Sebelius indicated she strongly supports the administration's proposal to create Medicare-style, government-run health insurance.
