Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning. Reports state that she will make the official announcement on Friday.

ABC News reported that Sebelius approached President Obama about one month ago, asking to resign. The President is allegedly going to nominate Budget Director Sylvia Burwell as the new Secretary.

It is easy to surmise why Sebelius is resigning; Obamacare enrollment numbers have been drastically lower than the Obama Administration had anticipated late last year. Sebelius has largely been the face of the health care bill, and continued to assure U.S. citizens that enrollment numbers would be significant even when they were not.

Despite her stepping down, Sebelius continues to tout how “successful” Obamacare has been. On Thursday she said at a Senate Finance Committee hearing, “As of this week, 400,000 additional Americans have signed up and we expect that number to continue to grow.”

Last week the Administration said that 7.1 million Americans have enrolled in Obamacare. Earlier in April, Obama proudly squealed, “7.1 million Americans have now signed up for private insurance plans through these market places!”

That figure is questionable, however, since there is no way to distinguish between people who have actually paid for a plan, and others who did not pay but merely went online and selected an option. Sebelius admitted this, and said last week, “What we know from insurance companies…tell us that, for their initial customers, it’s somewhere between 80, 85, some say as high as 90 percent, have paid so far.”

It is also notable that the new Obamacare enrollees were not necessarily uninsured before signing up for healthcare on the marketplace. Ben Shaprio of Breitbart News wrote, “Some five million Americans saw their policies cancelled thanks to Obamacare. Those Americans were forced into the Obamacare exchanges by the government. According to a RAND Corporation study, only 858,000 previously uninsured Americans had actually joined Obamacare. That’s a far cry from 7.1 million.”

Sebelius’ resignation may hint at the fact that the Obama Administration is not pleased with the massive healthcare bill’s roll-out and results. Rather than take accountability for Obamacare, largely an expensive failure, Sebelius will make a quiet exit and hope we all forget about her by the time the next political scandal rolls around.
