Burwell HHS Hearings Give Republicans Obamacare Opening

Republican lawmakers said hearings on Sylvia Mathews Burwell’s nomination as U.S. Health and Human Services secretary provide a fresh opening to raise questions about President Barack Obama’s health-care law.

Obama’s choice of Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to succeed Kathleen Sebelius will “elevate some of the concerns” that Republicans have about Obamacare, Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” program.
