    Kathleen Sebelius says lawmakers from both parties have good ideas.

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says the administration wants a health care overhaul this year but is still leaving the details to Congress.

    Sebelius said on Sunday that a health care overhaul "needs to be owned by the House and the Senate" and won't be dictated by President Barack Obama. She says lawmakers from both parties have good ideas.

    Obama has refused to outline specific proposals for his broad health care overhaul. Instead, he has left to lawmakers the give-and-take of proposals that comes before a bill is completed.

    Sebelius says all options remain on the table, but she said again that someone has to pay for the overhaul.

    Sebelius appeared on CNN's "State of the Union."
