AP and Fox are reporting that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning. No date has been given yet.

Sebelius presided over the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov, and has been caught breaking federal laws against engaging in political activity on government time. More recently, she was caught disowning her own claim that 7 million Obamacare enrollees would constitute success, before the Obama administration claimed to have reached that magical number.

While it would be nice to think that failure and dishonesty have caught up with Sebelius, the reality is that she is probably leaving government for more lucrative reasons.

As Sebelius leaves, OMB Director Sylvia Matthews Burwell has been nominated to replace her.

Update: Yep.

They forced her out now, because keeping her any closer to November or having her resign closer to November both would have been favorable to the GOP. As always, it's always about politics and the next election cycle for the "Administration Always on the Campaign Trail" (C).

Now she can be filed away into nothing, dismissed like those shipped off to the gulags. Come November, she will never have even existed to the Democrats, other than to shoulder some blame for something that used to be a failure but has now been re-written into a national success.

In the Soviet Republic of Obamastan, all your health cares are belong to us.

This will probably be spun (successfully) as a positive for the President.

I can hardly wait to see what far-leftist, mindless nincompoop is going to take her place; you just know she/he will be an absolute tool.

Sebelius is resigning, another incompetent slug to take her place, to run a failed and inherently corrupt operation. And of course the epitome of that combination, corruption and incompetence, Barack Obama, the most disgraceful ,dumb, ignorant man ever to set foot in the WH. That includes waiters, cooks, gardeners, plumbers, etc, etc,.

So wait..... which one was this again?

The two of 'em ...the Corrupt Blonde and the Criminal Brunette...

Both have the same hawk faced, squinty eyed, look-down-their-nose-at-you-peons Angry Facist Stare... the same meaningless doubletalk and obfuscation, and the same media adoration as "heroic under seige"....

The Arrogant Twins.....I keep confusing WHICH Ministry of Lies and Corruption they are in charge of, as hair color is the only distinguishing feature between them....

Maybe its the Same Broad in different wigs?

Oh well......the whole lot of 'em will look the same against a wall, with blindfolds on too, right?

All Obama's economic advisors left. If they really believed in what they did they'd hang around to take credit, but they knew it was a sinking ship. Kathleen was a political appointment for loyalty, in spite of incompetence. She had to go. If Obamacare was such a great success, why would she leave? She'd stay around to claim credit for the great "success."

These days success credit is worth much less than blind political loyalty credit.

Well Katie’s the first one to fall
And the odds are that she won’t be all
O’ Care’s a big mess
And my best guess
It will gralloch the lib’rals cabal

"...been caught breaking federal laws against engaging in political activity on government time."

I hope somehow, somewhere, some House committee goes after her, just because, if for no other reason.

Down and dirty, we *have* to start playing in that manner.

I wonder what lucky company will scoop her up to manage their next project. And I do mean "scoop".
