Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was scheduled to attend NJ‘s policy breakfast “Health Care at a Crossroads” this morning, but had to cancel late yesterday for urgent meetings. Needless to say, the Secretary is busy these days.

“As an organization, we are committed to bringing the biggest decision makers out for these events and will continue to pursue them – with the understanding that their schedules are extremely unpredictable,” NJ‘s David Miller said by email.

But the show must go on… as planned, NJ political analyst Charlie Cook moderated an interesting and insightful discussion between former Reps. Tom Davis (R-VA) and Vic Fazio (D-CA).

Check out NJ‘s website for dets on this event and more information on NJ Group’s Health Care Week.
