WASHINGTON, DC (RNN) - After a rocky rollout of the Affordable Care Act, Health and Human Resources Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning, according to the Associated Press and other media outlets.
The announcement comes a little more than a week after the deadline to enroll for healthcare on the troubled Healthcare.gov website. The website was the victim to several failures and crashes for consumers who wanted to sign up for the signature legislation of President Barack Obama's administration.
The Obama administration reached its enrollment goal by the March 31 deadline, with more than 7 million Americans signing up.
The website debuted in October.
Prior to her Cabinet appointment in 2009, Sebelius was the governor of Kansas in 2003. She previously held posts as the state's insurance commissioner and in its House of Representatives.
