Sebelius rips Fla. judge’s ruling on reform law
Modern Healthcare

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, in a speech before state and local government executives, blasted the Monday ruling against the controversial healthcare reform law by a federal judge in Florida as “judicial overreach.” She also questioned the legal standing of a high-profile Medicaid waiver request from Arizona.

Sebelius said during a Governing Magazine conference that “considerable confusion” was caused by the ruling that struck down the law based on the judge’s determination that the individual insurance mandate provision was unconstitutional.
