U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) joined Republican senators in sending a letter today to President Obama calling for the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
"We write today to formally request that you call for the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
"After the failed October 1 launch of the federally-run Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) exchanges, HealthCare.gov, it must be acknowledged that the problems are profound, systemic and undeniable.
"In the days immediately following the launch, when it was apparent that problems were deep-seeded, Secretary Sebelius misled the public by claiming the issues were the result of high volume. According to her statements to the press, she even failed to inform you, the President under whom she serves, until days after the website launch that there were systemic problems needing millions more dollars and man hours to fix.
"We believe that action must be taken swiftly to protect the American people from further fallout."
