Federal Employee Union Eager to Work with New HHS Secretary-Designate

WASHINGTON, March 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), the nation's largest federal employee union, congratulates Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius on her nomination to become the nation's 21st secretary of Health and Human Services.

"President Obama's selection of Sebelius proves he is committed to making health care reform one of the top priorities of his administration," AFGE National President John Gage said. "Governor Sebelius will lead the administration's health care reform push. That's a tremendous and sobering task. We know she has the experience, knowledge and tenacity to get the job done."

More than eight million active and retired government employees and their dependents are covered by the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, making it the largest employer-sponsored health insurance plan in the nation. "Average premiums have increased by more than 60 percent in the past seven years, a rate much faster than the average growth rate of national health care costs. Plan participants also have to pay more out-of-pocket costs and several popular plans have been terminated," added Gage. "AFGE is ready to work closely with Governor Sebelius to expand health coverage and make health care affordable for all Americans."

The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest federal employee union, representing 600,000 workers in the federal government and the government of the District of Columbia.
