First Lady Says US Health Care is 'Unacceptable'

Published September 18, 2009

WASHINGTON (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama says the current state of health care in the U.S. is unacceptable and women have an important role to play in changing that.

The first lady and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius spoke to a group of women at the White House Friday. Mrs. Obama says women are uniquely qualified to change the debate on health care overhaul because they are often the ones "making critical health care decisions" for their families.

Mrs. Obama says her husband's plan will allow women to obtain better, more affordable health coverage.
