Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says she believes people who remain skeptical about the massive health care reform that has passed Congress will feel better as they learn more about it.

Interviewed the morning after Democrats pushed it through on a 219-212 vote, Sebelius suggested that public resistance to the legislation largely is the result of statements Republican opponents and insurance industry figures have made about it.

She told CBS's "The Early Show" she thought "what's been going on for the better part of the year is a lot of attempts to confuse and scare Americans." Sebelius said people "will be happy" with the legislation once they learn more about how it changes the rules governing how insurance companies operate.
