No it wasn’t her fault, but someone has to take the blame, so HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius chose the day after the close of the individual open enrollment period to make way for a replacement. What’s ironic is that she is leaving on a high note, since it appears, at least for now, that the final rollout of the Affordable Care Act is at least a moderate success, with possible enrollment exceeding 7.5 million (yet all the major networks, in announcing the resignation, all characterized the beginning of the rollout to be “rocky”) Her successor will be a long established Washington player, current OMB Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell. David Yepsen of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute, said, however “If the Obama people thought this was going to calm the waters, I think they misread it. I think it’s just going to embolden Republicans” The latest Kaiser Family Foundation poll says that 46% still have an unfavorable view of the law and 38% have a favorable view. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said “Secretary Sebelius may be gone, but the problems with this law and the impact it’s having on our constituents aren’t. Obamacare has to go, too”
