Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) said Friday that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius should resign over the troubled rollout of Obamacare’s health insurance marketplaces.

“In the absence of a full repeal of Obamacare, which is my preference, we need new leadership from top to bottom. I am calling on the Secretary to resign,” Roberts said in a statement. Sebelius is the former governor of Kansas.

“Everything we warned about has come to pass. Americans are tired of the Sebelius spin. They can see Obamacare has failed them. We need a Secretary who can admit when enough is enough,” Roberts continued. “The American people should not have to tolerate the chaos of the exchange, or the ill effects of Obamacare for one more day. They are already suffering in a terrible economy.

“They have higher taxes, higher premiums and great uncertainty about access to quality healthcare. We need a Secretary who realizes that.”
