Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is using the memory of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to encourage Americans to sign up for the troubled Obamacare system.
“As we celebrate the inspirational life of Dr. King, please join us in this historic effort by helping your friends, neighbors, and loved ones get covered through the Marketplace,” Sebelius said of the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Sebelius explained that King’s civil rights leadership extended to advocacy for the poor, and that he was concerned about health care inequality.
“Dr. King memorably described inequality in health care as the ‘most shocking and inhumane’ form of injustice,” Sebelius continued in her Friday statement. “These words continue to resonate, as there is nothing more essential to opportunity than good health.”
According to the HHS secretary, the “Affordable Care Act” has rung in a “new day in health care.”
