Johanns expresses displeasure with Sebelius' absence at hearing

Posted: Updated:
A U.S. Senator is expressing his astonishment in the absence of one Secretary.

Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius was absent at a hearing on her department's budget yesterday.  Sebelius' absence raised questions, as heads of departments are typically present during these hearings to defend their agency's budget requests.

Senator Mike Johanns is among the Republicans displeased with her absence.

"Many, many senators expressed their displeasure with that. I hope she reconsiders and I hope she announces that she's going to attend all hearings while she is the newly sworn in secretary of health and human services," says Johanns.

Johanns says when you are summoned by congress, it is your duty to appear.
