HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has become the latest Cabinet chief to join Twitter. The first tweet from @Sebelius featured the secretary at her laptop, hard at work - probably figuring out how to get local leaders to help sell and implement the ACA.
On Monday, Sebelius encouraged leaders at the National League of Cities conference to help educate the uninsured about health care, expanding Medicaid and "ending the culture of silence" around mental health care issues - something we certainly endorse!
“From Labor Day on, we will be actively trying to engage you, engage your outreach networks,” she said, citing community faith leaders and local media, among other outlets. “If states choose not to expand their Medicaid programs, a lot of people will fall through the cracks,” Sebelius said.
