Rubio on Calls for Sebelius Resignation: ‘I Think That May Become an Option’

Senator Marco Rubio wouldn’t call for Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius to resign now, but he indicated he may do so later on.

“I think that may become an option,” Rubio said on Fox News Sunday today. “I’m not a big fan of media calls for people to resign, but I think in this case, actions like the one you just outlined are going make it harder and harder for her to do her job effectively.”

Rubio also indicated Sebelius should start cooperating with congressional hearings on Obamacare’s rollout.

“Her refusal to testify and be transparent about it, I think, is undermining her credibility,” he said. “And there may come a point now, perhaps we’re not there today . . . where she will have to resign, largely because she no longer has the credibility to do the job.”
