‘She Was Not Serving the American People Well’: Rep. Blackburn on Sebelius’ Resignation
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning after a rocky launch of the Affordable Care Act, and President Barack Obama has nominated Budget Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell for the position.
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), vice chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, was on “Sunday Morning Futures” to discuss Sebelius’ resignation and ObamaCare.
“I think it was time for her to move on,” Blackburn said of the resignation. “And I think we’re all pleased that she has moved on. The rollout was a debacle, to use her words. I think everybody realized that, and she was not serving the American people well.”
Moving forward, Blackburn said that actuarial work must be done on the enrollment numbers.
Blackburn said she has spoken to many people who have had their hours reduced and are now working two jobs due to Obamacare, calling health care costs “outrageous.”
