Sebelius: ‘I Don’t’ Have Any Regrets as HHS Secretary
While she wishes she had done some things differently prior to the bungled launch of HealthCare.gov, Kathleen Sebelius said she has no regrets from her time as Health and Human Services secretary.
“I don’t,” said Sebelius, who resigned earlier this week, to NBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Sunday. “If I had a magic wand, and could go back to mid-September and ask different questions based on what I know now — I thought I was getting the best information.”
She admitted that the actual approach did not go “very well.”
The timing of Sebelius’s resignation has raised questions about the political calculations behind the decision ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. Elsewhere in her interview with Mitchell, she said she made the decision to leave following the first enrollment period, or else she would have felt obligated to stay until the end of the Obama presidency.
