Another one bites the dust as HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is throwing in the towel after a horrible Obamacare rollout.

The¬†New York Times¬†reports Sebelius “is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act.”

President Obama has accepted Sebelius’ resignation and will nominate OMB Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell to replace her.

Wall Street Journal: “Mrs. Sebelius’s departure came after months of speculation that she would resign over the rocky implementation of the law, which included a wave of technical problems plaguing the HealthCare.gov website. Mrs. Sebelius had said earlier today in congressional testimony that the administration had turned a corner on health-insurance enrollments, with 7.5 million people picking plans through federal and state-run exchanges.”
