US health secretary to resign after Obamacare woes

US Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius waits for President Barack Obama to speak about the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington on April 1, 2014President Barack Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is to resign, paying the price for the chaotic initial rollout of his signature health care law, officials said Thursday. Obama will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, his current budget director, who has a reputation as an accomplished manager, to replace Sebelius on Friday, the officials said. The administration was forced into an emergency effort to fix the site and succeeded to such an extent that 7.5 million people have now signed up for health insurance under the new law — a figure that defied expectations. But the stuttering debut of so-called Obamacare provided fresh ammunition to Republicans who are using the law’s unpopularity to blast vulnerable Democrats ahead of November’s mid-term elections.
