Obama is sticking with Sebelius

In the wake of the call by Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., for the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over the bungled rollout of the Affordable Care Act’s online marketplaces, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday that the former Kansas governor has “the full confidence of the president” and that Sebelius, like Obama, is “focused on our No. 1 priority, which is making the implementation of the Affordable Care Act work well.” USA Today noted one key reason for Obama to stick with Sebelius: “Confirming a replacement could be difficult in light of Republican opposition to the new health care law.”
