BREAKING: Sebelius Resigns From HHS

Reports indicate Barack Obama accepted the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Thursday. The embattled official struggled for years to sell an increasingly unpopular healthcare law to the American public and, just days after the ObamaCare enrollment date passed, is calling it quits.

She apparently made the decision on her own accord, despite persistent rumors over recent months that she might be forced to resign by the administration.

Hours after enthusiastically announcing yet another supposed surge in healthcare sign-ups, two separate sources within the administration confirm her resignation. Obama is expected to name Sylvia Mathews Burwell, director of the Office of Management and Budget, to succeed her.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Burwell about a year ago to head the OMB after formerly presiding over the Walmart Foundation. She was also integral in the Clinton administration, at one point taking the helm as the president’s chief of staff.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus reacted to the announcement, saying Sebelius’ replacement “will inherit a mess – Americans facing rising costs, families losing their doctors, and an economy weighed down by intrusive regulations.”

He explained that, regardless of the HHS secretary, “ObamaCare will continue to be a disaster and will continue to hurt hardworking Americans,” asserting that it is “time for President Obama to admit that Democrats’ signature law is a failure and heed Republican calls for a patient-centered healthcare reform.”

As Lois Lerner remains embroiled in her own controversy surrounding involvement in the Obama administration’s IRS scandal, many see Sebelius as yet another casualty of this administration’s disastrous policies.

    The lying Queen screwed up a system that was working for 80% of America. Only 10% of the 30 million uninsured cared enough to sign up. the lying king and queen wasted trillions of tax payer money, endless hours of fiat unconstitutional changes, endless hours of Americans’ time wasted finding other hospitals and doctors on obamcare, hundreds of thousands of jobs destroyed or reduced to part time, and the Constitution ignored and rewritten, all to get maybe a half to 3 million formerly uninsured people, and once the unpaid and invalid “enrollments” are sorted out, the numbers will be less. The new Medicaid enrollees (included into the lying couples’s 7 mil) are going to cause states to go bankrupt. And they only got 25% of the young over 26 to enroll for an advertised $75 dollars including dental, another lie. How are they going to handle the LIES after the facts come out? By raising premiums or delaying the increases until after the lying King leaves office, the POS LIAR!
