WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Sen. Ted Cruz believes Senate Democrats are the ones who forced Kathleen Sebelius to step down as health and human services secretary.
Cruz told NBC News that Democrats are worried that Republicans will take back the Senate because of Obamacare.
Kathleen Sebelius resignation is the latest indication of just what a disaster Obamacare is. Obamacare is the most disastrous, the most damaging piece of legislation in modern times, Cruz told NBC News. And I believe she resigned because Senate Democrats are scared.
Cruz told Fox News that Senate Democrats demanded Kathleen Sebelius head.
They are running scared because every one of them in their races across the country, theyre underwater, Cruz said. Theyre losing because Obamacare has hurt so many millions of people.
President Barack Obama nominated his budget director, Sylvia Mathews Burrell, to head the Health Department. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., told CBS News that Burwells nomination wont quiet the controversy.
They know theyve got a math problem with Obamacare, Blackburn told Face the Nation. The numbers are not going to work out so that the program is actuarially sound, and theyre going to have to have somebody to kind of spin the numbers.
Sebelius told NBC News Sunday that the Obama administration’s timeline for having ready the new health care law’s online sign-up system “was just flat out wrong.”
The departing health chief also said the two months when healthcare.gov was plagued with technical problems were “a pretty dismal time” and the low point of her five-year tenure. But she defended the law’s impact and said millions of Americans now have access to health care because of it.
“People have competitive choices and real information for the first time ever in this insurance market,” said Sebelius, who last week announced her resignation.

The Cruz theory is highly plausible.
It would only make sense that the people who came up with Common Core math would be the same ones who can't figure out the numbers for ObamaCare.
If the demanded her head, there’s a job left undone in my opinion. She’ll be retired with a fat government pension and positions on so many company boards of directors in the health industry it isn’t funny. She needs to pay more substantively for her complicity and deceit.
Please add me to you list. Thank you
Now, I cannot be blamed for what happened under somebody else's watch.
Hubba! Hubba! Hubba!!!
You just know that this is true; no other way it would have happened this quickly.
All she did was lie about it. There is no way in hell that roll out was going to work no matter who ran it. The law is a joke.
So she’s the budget director??? Would that be the budget that got zero votes until they finally came up with one that I think got 2 votes?
remember, one just wanted to kill puppies...
I wasnt pushed out staying just wasnt an option
I don’t care what Cruz has to say until he talks about Bunkerville. Is he not interested in this? Doesn’t he want to know what his colleague’s role was? It’s likely that Reid’s was involved in a land-grab that almost started a civil war.
Someone needed to be the sacrifice for the fiasco known as Obamacare. Someone had to fall on the sword. Someone had to have his/her head roll. Someone had to offer up herself to go under the bus.
Now, the Dems can run in the election against Sebelius and the fiasco that is Obamacare and claim they are the ones to fix it.
Holy cow! She’s a Sarah Jessica Parker ‘horseface’ lookalike.
I’ve been saying this for months, just missed the timing as I figured they’d push Obama to rev up the bus before now. But this was carefully planned to minimize damage to reelection campaigns. Obama will get his new HHS Secy, she’ll get a month or two honeymoon, and then we’ll be told it’s just part of our “war on women” when we question anything she says or does, after all they’ll be able to point to how mean Republican were to both secretaries, both of whom are women.
Meanwhile Obama gets a mulligan, and can re-launch Obamacare yet again.
I hope it's true, and then proven thus....otherwise, Cruz will continue to be painted as a kook by the media, et al.
Oh, dear. She looks like Caroline Kennedy.
Cruz: “Senate Democrats Demanded Kathleen Sebelius Head”
Nah...what would they want with an empty coconut shell?
I suggest we trade her head for Holders?
