She said what?


Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said today that it is “impossible” to tie employers reducing employees’ hours to the health law.

There is nothing in place right now in the legislation that would require any employer to change work hours. And we don’t think there is going to be,” Sebelius told the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee in response to a question about why employers are cutting employee hours and citing the law. “So whatever is happening to work hours is impossible to tie to the Affordable Care Act. Because there is no connection here in 2013.”
