Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who was the face of the president's health care law, is resigning from the Obama administration -- a decision that closes one of the rockiest tenures in Obama's Cabinet.

Sebelius leaves the administration after the tumultuous launch of the Affordable Care Act exchanges last fall. Despite calls for her ouster from Republicans at the time, she stayed on until the enrollment period ended at the end of March.

A White House official said President Obama will formally make the announcement on Friday, and nominate White House budget office director Sylvia Matthews Burwell to replace the outgoing secretary. The Senate would have to confirm Burwell to the position.

The administration has since touted the surge in enrollment in the last few weeks, with Sebelius saying Thursday that 7.5 million American have now signed up for coverage under the law.

But the technical difficulties surrounding the launch, as well as ongoing concerns about the implementation of the law, hung over her. She leaves just one week after the enrollment period ended, and as a tough midterm election cycle expected to focus heavily on ObamaCare begins.

Republicans quickly made clear that Sebelius' departure will not temper their criticisms of ObamaCare.

"Secretary Sebelius oversaw a disastrous rollout of ObamaCare, but anyone can see that there are more problems on the way," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said. "The next HHS Secretary will inherit a mess -- Americans facing rising costs, families losing their doctors, and an economy weighed down by intrusive regulations. No matter who is in charge of HHS, ObamaCare will continue to be a disaster and will continue to hurt hardworking Americans."

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Orrin Hatch said Sebelius "had one of the toughest jobs in Washington" because she had to implement the law, which he said is "flawed" and continues to fall short.

"While we havenít always agreed, Secretary Sebelius did the best she could during the tumultuous and volatile rollout of the law," Hatch, R-Utah, said in a statement.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi praised Sebelius' leadership during the rollout, saying she had "been forceful, effective, and essential."

"Her legacy will be found in the 7.5 million Americans signed up on the marketplaces so far, the 3.1 million people covered on their parents' plans, and the millions more gaining coverage through the expansion of Medicaid," Pelosi, D-Calif., said.

The White House official said Sebelius notified Obama of her decision to leave in early March.

"At that time, Secretary Sebelius told the president that she felt confident in the trajectory for enrollment and implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and that she believed that once open enrollment ended it would be the right time to transition the department to new leadership," the official said, adding the president "is deeply grateful for her service."

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin praised the nomination of Burwell, a fellow West Virginia native, in a statement Thursday.

"I am confident that her leadership will ensure that we enact commonsense fixes to the Affordable Care Act to help improve the lives of millions of Americans," Manchin said.

Sebelius, having served five years with the president, was among the longest-serving Cabinet secretaries in the administration.

But Sebelius' relationship with the White House frayed during last fall's rollout of the insurance exchanges that are at the center of the sweeping overhaul. The president and his top advisers said they were frustrated by what they considered to be a lack of information from HHS over the extent of the website troubles.

The White House sent management expert Jeffrey Zients to oversee a rescue operation that turned things around by the end of November.

Dems help drug dealers

Johnson City, TN

The U.S. Sentencing Commission on Thursday endorsed shorter federal prison sentences for most drug dealers -- but not before members of the agency scolded Attorney General Eric Holder for unilaterally pushing those changes weeks earlier.

"That unprecedented instruction disrespected our statutory role," said Judge William H. Pryor Jr., who sits on the commission.

The vote still was a win for Holder, who endorsed the proposal at a meeting of the commission last month. In a statement Thursday, he called the commission's action a "milestone in our effort to reshape the criminal justice system's approach to dealing with drug offenses."

But members of the commission used Thursday's meeting to publicly warn Holder against end-running the agency. The independence agency is tasked with establishing sentencing policies for the federal courts and advising Congress. Even these recommendations are supposed to go to Congress for approval, despite Holder's effort to push them now.

"The law provides the executive no authority to establish national sentencing policies based on speculation about how we and Congress might vote on a proposed amendment," Pryor said.

Members voiced concern that Holder had instructed federal prosecutors across the country not to object when defense attorneys tried to apply the proposal -- even though the proposal had not yet been approved.

"It would have been nice for us to have known ... that this action had been taken," Judge Ricardo Hinojosa said.

Despite the scolding, the decision advances Holder's efforts to ease long mandatory sentences and give greater discretion for judges in sentencing.

The commission said it estimates the changes approved Thursday would affect roughly 70 percent of federal drug trafficking defendants and would reduce by 11 months the average length of sentence for drug offenders.

The commission believes the change, which would reduce the sentencing guideline levels across drug types, would cut the federal prison population by more than 6,500 over five years.

You know damn good and well what it means. Like she said, you like to play games.

Here, now shut it down and end the nitpicking.

Geez, this was really hard.

Spread the Wealth
This is what Barack Obama intends to do as President and is the act of taking money (taxes) from the people who earned it and distributing it (as refundable tax credits) to people who did not earn it - the effectively spreading the wealth.

Spreading the wealth is the cornerstone of Marxist/Socialist/Communist political thought.
Robin Hood taking from the rich and giving to the poor eg. taxing (taking) and distributing 'tax refunds'(giving) to the poor (not even trying to not suck at life).
Spread the wealth is a Marxist ideal. This is what your party supports.

Not a conservative idea at all!
