A White House official says Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration, ending what may have been the most incompetent tenure of any HHS Secretary.
Sebelius’ resignation comes only one week after the close of the disastrous enrollment period for President Barack Obama’s health care law, with one deception after another making its way into the headlines almost daily. Initially, problem-riddled code and failures plagued the website in the first weeks of the six-month enrollment period, but enrollment suffered as a result of many other factors, such as high deductibles and premiums.
Sebelius’ resignation, no doubt, will make for a combative nomination and confirmation hearing during what has become an election year dominatied by ObamaCare. President Barack Obama Obama reportedly will nominate OMB Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell as her successor.
Sebelius has served as HHS secretary since the start of the Obama administration.
