Kathleen Sebelius Resigns!

The New York Times is reporting that Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning on Friday.  After President Obama placed her in a chair as he touted 7.1 million enrollments in Obamacare and didn’t mention her, we said that she would be soon wanting to spend more time with her family or will take a job in the private sector.

Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act.

Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said.

The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits, and help Democratic incumbents, who face blistering attack ads after supporting the legislation, survive the midterm elections this fall.

Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy.

  1. These are pig headed policies and serve no purpose except Obama’s which invariably are not aligned with the country’s wellbeing. Sebelius’ resignation doesn’t mean a thing; she is not the root of the problem, ObamaCare is.
