After five years of being the scapegoat of the Obamacare debacle, beleaguered Health and Human Services Secretary Katherine Sebelius has finally waved the white flag of surrender.
President Obama has accepted her resignation from the position.
The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits, and help Democratic incumbents, who face blistering attack ads after supporting the legislation, survive the midterm elections this fall.
Even last week, as Mr. Obama triumphantly announced that enrollments in the exchanges had exceeded seven million, she did not appear next to him for the news conference in the Rose Garden. (source)
The President is expected to nominate Budget Chief Sylvia Mathews Burwell as Sebelius’s replacement.
