Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), the top Republican on the committee that oversees the Department of Health and Human Services, said Tuesday that President Obama should ask Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to resign over HealthCare.gov's troubled rollout.
"Expecting (Sebelius) to be able to fix what she has not been able to fix during the last three and one half years is unrealistic," said Alexander, who is the ranking member of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. "It is time for ... someone else to take charge. No CEO ... would escape accountability after such a poor performance."
Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) issued a similar call on Oct. 11. A group of 32 House Republicans also sent a letter to Obama, urging him to request Sebelius's resignation.
