Obama taps budget director for health post, as he celebrates Sebelius failures
The celebration of the failure of Sibelius was disgusting, but think of Obama’s budget director failures whose budgets never get even a democrat vote.
Check it out:
President Obama tapped a new lieutenant on Friday to lead the vast array of federal health programs, saying goodbye to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius who is resigning after a long and rocky tenure with the administration.
Sebelius announced her resignation just days after the ObamaCare enrollment period drew to a close. She and the rest of the administration have touted the more than 7 million people who have signed up under the Affordable Care Act exchanges, but the system’s disastrous launch last fall and other lingering concerns with the ObamaCare rollout had become a heavy weight on the outgoing secretary.
To replace her, Obama nominated White House budget office director Sylvia Matthews Burwell.
Obama, speaking in the Rose Garden, thanked Sebelius Friday for her “extraordinary service” and said that despite the rocky rollout, Sebelius’ team “turned the corner, got it fixed, got the job done, and the final score speaks for itself.”
