Kathleen Sebelius resigning from top HHS post



WASHINGTON (AP) -- A White House official says Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration.

The move comes just a week after the close of the rocky enrollment period for President Barack Obama's health care law. Website failures marred the opening weeks of the six-month enrollment period, but the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in health insurance plans.

Sebelius' resignation could set the stage for a contentious election-year confirmation hearing for whomever Obama nominates to replace her. Sebelius has served as HHS secretary since the start of the Obama administration.

The official was not authorized to discuss Sebelius' resignation ahead of the formal announcement and requested anonymity.

She should have been fired 6 months ago, not allowed to gracefully retire now.

What does the new one know about running a medical facility - or anything else. Just another scape goat for a socialistic failure.

Obama never admits a mistake. Instead of accepting blame he blames it on his employees. What a joke he is .

Gees...Not a single positive supportive comment for an Obama administration position holder? This is so surprising! Our President...? The single most visible shame to our Nation. And how about the many more not so visible? Putin said it best on an interview a few weeks ago when asked about how he thought Russia's latest actions would make the president react...His exact comments were "He is insignificant". All those bleeding the system in this country had better take notice. Their free-ride leader in the White House will be their ruin when many of them may actually have to go to find work in a market where the current administration has just about killed those of us that want to keep our businesses afloat. Why should we work anymore? Let's just become the third world country Obama is leading us towards and become "insignificant?" All you crybabies that consider themselves Patriots and didn't vote in the last wto elections will deserve what you will be getting. I always vote and the way it is going, I suspect for the first time in our country there is room for a third party. It's time to reset the clock. The one we are using is telling stupid time.

2 more years of the gravy train..... you know its funny....I'm white..I have black friends that I have had for years...and a few to be exact....have acquired a brazen attitude of......because I'm black...I'm right....and they laugh about it......its a personal vendetta and payback for the racial discrimination they have faced over a lifetime....Obama and his minions have done nothing to close the racial divide....but rather just widen it...

I am sick to death of the critics of Obama. Where were you when George W got us into two wars on totally false accusations, which Cheeney and Rummysfield now admit were false. Then left us with the biggest deficit EVER in American history because he had no way to pay for those wars.

This was left for the next President to clean up, whomever that might be, and that person would then be left to take the blame for W's actions. Which is exactly what happenned. Obama had not been in office a month, and they were calling it Obama's deficit, Obama's wars, Obama's this , Obama's that.

If it had not been so totally ludicrous, it would have been laughable. Not to mention the fact that W had let Osama Bin Laden slip through his hands several times, when they had his position dead to rights by satellite images. Why ? because the Bush family was personal friends with the family.

American soldiers died for outrageous lies told by our government, once again like Vietnam, and Oil companies like Halliburton and others profited,

It is sick and disgusting and when are the American people going to wake up and see they have been duped by these power hungry,greedy, inhumane bastards.
War is not the ANSWER. It never has been and it never will be. It is nothing but potlatch and does nothing but get innocent young people killed , maimed and disabled so that rich men can profit and laugh behind closed doors at the stupidity of "Patriotism".
WAKE the F up America- they are stealing our country out from under us !! The Supreme Court is number one in their outrageous disregard for our civil rights.

Right now , as one who marched in the sixties in solidarity with Dr Martin Luther King, for civil rights, I have to say I am ashamed of the direction our country is headed in. I only hope it is not too late,
Peace, love and brotherhood were the answer then and remain the answer now !!!
