Sebelius just admitted "adequate" testing was never done before launch. She also admits they don't know the enrollment numbers because the system isn't working. Minutes earlier she said it never crashed and was functioning. Yeah, Obama will be accepting her resignation before the end of the year.

She probably should resign or be fired but unfortunately I don't think that can happen. If she's out, congress will need to approve of the new appointee and the republicans will likely block all appointees because that's how they do. I'm not sure when the next time a recess appointment can be made but if that's the route Obama takes they'll rant and rave about that too of course.

She can't be fired now. Same reason she couldn't be in a business. At this point only she understands how she made the mess she made, so only she can fix it. If you fire her, you lose time replacing her, then lose time while the replacement figures out what went wrong, then lose time while the replacement makes changes (which are often likely to be sweeping.)

No, you do what would happen if she was a project manager or exec at a company - you make her fix it and fix it quickly, then you fire her. But companies never really fire anyone, so more likely you push her into a new position that has no power or responsibility, because that's how I've seen every single corporation I've been at do it (sadly.)

The bold is exactly what I mean, total bullshit.
