A Republican senator called Friday for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to resign over what he described as the bungled launch of the ObamaCare exchanges.
"How long do we let this failed exchange continue to operate? Roberts said in a written statement, calling the problems systematic, profound and indisputable.
He alleged that Sebelius wont shoot straight with the American people, citing her interview earlier in the week on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart in which she would not say how many people were actually able to enroll.
"In the absence of a full repeal of ObamaCare, which is my preference, we need new leadership from top to bottom. I am calling on the secretary to resign, he said.

YES....except she should resign because she’s an idiot commie
More symbolic gesturing by the GOP.
They refused to do the heavy lifting of stopping Obamacare because they are wusses, or worse, they are Collaborators, so now we are supposed to pat Senator Pat Roberts on the back for this “Hot-Air” action of his?

Was there no load testing?
Was there no periodic benchmark review?
Is there no accountability at any level?
That's not grounds for getting fired, that's a job requirement in the Obama regime.
The only question is: what is Sebelius getting from this?
Was there anything that could have been done to stop it in light of the votes the dims had at the time?
The usual career path, some high-paying public sector job like Janet Napolitano.
One of the most evil being that all insurance companies must provide the morning-after pill.
That isn’t the reason this ruthless communist b!tch should be made to resign.
How about an audit to find out where the half a billion dollars that wasn’t spent on web site development ended up going...as if we don’t already know.
It doesn't seem like Pat The Righteous Dragon Slayer has much to complain about as he is now complicit in perpetuating the entire scam.
I have been thinking the same thing. There has to be something rather than just making sound bites out of the mess it is in: The Inspector General, and/or Congressional investigation, and/or an outside independent agency, and/or go to a Court and get an injunction on continuing to operate this farce!!
Someone with standing should go to Court and get an injunction. Enough of this national embarrassment!!
Obamacare was not about improving health care or health care costs. If it were, it would be 100% different than what it is.
Audit the FED. Ron Paul has that one spot on!
Always interesting to watch the wobbly kneed cowards develop a spine when they are being primaried
I guess like everything else in this illegitimate administration, it is racist to ask for an explanation as to where a half a billion dollars went to.
No it is not at all racist [I understand what you mean, but we have to reiterate a logical message to at least those who still can understand it] to ask where a half a bill went — and it is to the benefit of the persons who need support from charity and from government programs, that OTHER government expenditures are scrupuliousluy accounted for! We need to hold Obamacare responsible for the many hundreds of MILLIONS it has wasted in a vain and failed attempt to implement its programs — how many needy could have been fed or given health care for all that money!?! That is the question. And on the taxpayer dollar, so they have hurt many many more than the ones they are even concerned about helping. So we taxpayers, absorb an estimated $93 million that turns into over $640 million — no sympathy for us as the ones who pay the bill! But that money could have gone from us to the needy, not from us to a failed software enterprise. Except for their incompetence and not caring about how much money is wasted to force their program on payers and victims alike. I know you get it! ; )
I have been in healthcare for 33 years as a physician assistant. The elephant in the room is that the government cannot even get the website right...and they are going to dole out healthcare??? I can’t even imagine the mistakes in diagnosis coding, medication errors and billing as well as a mass exodus of American schooled doctors that await people when this thing gets in to full swing. I work at a large hospital in Alabama and everyone I come into contact with in the course of the day (healthcare workers) basically agrees that this has nothing to do with healthcare as so many of you have posted already. It has everything to do with crashing the Republic as we know it. It’s called a Trojan Horse.
We have elected the enemy....twice.
The imposter in all likely-hood isn’t even a U.S. citizen.
If congress isn’t concerned about that, what’s a half billion amongst thieves.
The last thing on earth this administration has in mind is to care for the needy.
