Sebelius Will Resign

HHS Secretary Kathleen 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," the New York Times reports.

Obama accepted Sebelius's resignation this week, and on Friday morning he 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."
