Sebellius resigns: What took so long

In a move that shocks nobody, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from her post.

Work complete after killing the existing plans of over 6 million people, cancelling cancer patients access to plans, doctors, and their clinics, Sebellius figured her job is complete. She and Barack Obama have managed to further destroy an already faltering health care system. And let’s not forget the start of this fiasco with the failure of a website that was years in the making.

But that’s all behind us, because as reported here:

President Barack Obama will announce his intent to nominate current Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Sylvia Matthews Burwell to replace Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services, according to a White House official. The announcement will be made at 11:00 am at an event at the White House on Friday.

The only question that can be asked is what took so long. Any real leader would have fired Sebellius for incompetence within days of the ObamaCare rollout. But not America’s dumbest president. I’m curious as to what finally prompted the action.
