Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has become the face of the rocky Obamacare rollout.
So when news of her upcoming resignation broke, Republican politicians, still actively trying to repeal the law Sebelius heralded, unleashed a slew of mocking tweets.
I thank Secretary Sebelius for her service. She had an impossible task: nobody can make Obamacare work.

Sebelius may be gone, but tomorrow you’ll still wake up with higher health premiums than the plan you weren’t able to keep.

Mr. Clapper & Mr. Holder, where are your resignations?

Amid the GOP outrage, only a few Democrats chimed in on Twitter to defend the beleaguered secretary:
Sec. Sebelius handled the difficult #ACA rollout with grace and class. Millions of Americans now enjoy affordable coverage. I wish her well.
