Sebelius: People Stop Me On Sidewalks, At Grocery Stores To Thank Me For Obamacare


Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius appeared on MSNBC Thursday afternoon to react to the Supreme Court's decision on Obamacare subsidies in states that do not have an exchange set up.

Sebelius said she often gets stopped on the street, on airplanes and in grocery stores by people thankful for the Affordable Care Act.

KATHLEEN SEBELIUS, FMR. HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY: I think this law has always been about people who wanted and needed desperately affordable health coverage. There's 6.4 million people who now know the coverage that they have, can continue on with subsidies and millions more who can take advantage of it. I've been a lucky one, I've always had affordable available health care. So I feel great for the people who talk to me every day in the grocery store and on airplanes and stop me on sidewalks and tell me that this has changed their life forever. They no longer have to worry about affording health care if they get sick, taking care of their kids and this is a very good day for those Americans.
