Bottom line

She was the featured joke on Saturday Night Live last week. Her rollout of the federal health-care website has been a national catastrophe, stranding millions with no visible sign of insurance next year. And she took responsibility for the debacle before Congress on Wednesday.

There’s no question that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius must go. Otherwise, what amount of failure will be deemed unacceptable?

Similar to the president who appointed her, Sebelius’ “Relax, I got this” persona is a false façade. Her fumbling of this monumental responsibility – a nation’s health – is epic and historical.

Still, while she must accept accountability, she is not the problem.

The problem is the blind, unwarranted faith in big government she and the president share.
