With Obamacare leading to taxpayer funding of abortions, massive layoffs at hospitals and medical centers and a botched system few seem to be able to sign up on, calls to fire pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are growing.

“Senate Republicans are already calling for Kathleen Sebelius to resign her post. And these voices of public disapproval will only grow louder in the days ahead, I can assure you,” Town Hall reports.

But what’s truly remarkable is that even former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is acknowledging that government employees can and must be fired for completely mishandling the Obamacare rollout. It was a bungled and poorly executed effort by all accounts. So who better for Obama to cut loose first than his Secretary of Health and Human Services?

The chances President Obama will fire his top Obamacare cheerleader? Zero percent. Why? Because first and foremost that would be a tacit admission that his signature legislative achievement isn’t working. And he can’t allow that to happen, can he? Of course not. Remember, too, the administration spent oodles of time and resources enlisting the support of Hollywood celebrities and actors to sell the unpopular law to a deeply suspicious public. Never mind that the White House knew well in advance that the official Obamacare website would never be fully operational by October 1. They went ahead with the rollout and the implementation deadline anyway.

The Republican Party has released a new video calling on Obama to fire Sebelius:



Sebelius has been President Barack Obama’s main organizer and cheerleader for Obamacare since its inception. But you know the government-run health care plan is bad when the Secretary of the Health and Human Services Department can’t get anyone from her own state to sign up for it.
