Breaking: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is Resigning
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.
