In a Friday Rose Garden ceremony, President Barack Obama hailed the work of his newly-resigned Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for historic work in implementing the highly unpopular Obamacare program.
Obama said Sebelius will “go down in history” for her work on the disastrous Obamacare website and roll out.
“She’s got bumps. I’ve got bumps, bruises” from implementing Obamacare, said the president. Still, “I will miss her advice, I will miss her friendship, and I will miss her wit,” Obama said.
Obama named Clinton campaign worker and OMB Director Sylvia Burwell as Sebelius’s replacement.
Despite Obama’s attempts to salvage Sebelius’s reputation, Politico blasted Sebelius’s managerial incompetence and said her own staffers grew weary of her “flubbing details” and “causing headaches in meetings.”
Left in Sebelius’s wake are the five million individuals who saw their insurance plans canceled due to Obamacare, as well as the thousands of Obamacare victims who find themselves trapped in an unpopular system that will cost U.S. taxpayers $2.6 trillion over the next ten years.
