Sebelius Vote Set to Hit Senate Floor

Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) withdrew his nomination after coming under fire for failing to pay more than $100,000 in taxes on time. Sebelius’ nomination was briefly shaken — although not threatened — when it was discovered that she had more than $8,000 in misfiled taxes and received campaign donations from a doctor who has performed late-term abortions.

If confirmed, Sebelius will fill the last vacant secretary post in the Obama administration.

“Governor Sebelius has a record of working with Republicans and Democrats to get things done,” Finance Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) said through a spokeswoman. “She is the right person to set a bipartisan tone at HHS and she is the right partner for Congress on health care reform.”
