Was Sebelius resigning a good move?

Washington (CNN) - Shortly after Kathleen Sebelius was tapped to carry out President Barack Obama's signature health care reform effort, the head of Health and Human Services found herself in the crosshairs of Republicans determined to repeal the law.

The two-term Kansas governor-turned-Obamacare-chief-defender is resigning as health secretary. She's leaving after a problem-plagued rollout of HealthCare.gov, the federal website portal critical to the law's implementation, but with the administration taking a victory lap after unexpectedly reaching and then exceeding its sign-up target of 7 million.

Cupp: Why Dems better hope Obama's lying

(CNN) - As the fallout from the botched launch of Affordable Care Act's exchanges continues, it grows ever clearer that website glitches are only a small part of the problem with the cumbersome - and increasingly unworkable - law. One has to ask: Is President Barack Obama making this up as he goes?

It's hard to imagine that the President and the team charged with implementing Obamacare couldn't have foreseen the problems that have continually popped up.

In the Crossfire: Can Congress fix Obamacare?

The numbers everyone's been waiting for are out: Just over 106,000 signed up for Obamacare in its first month, fewer than 27,000 coming from the healthcare.gov site.

Plus, horror stories from Obamacare website insiders were told at a Congressional hearing today. But was the hearing fair?

Tonight in the Crossfire: Rep. James Lankford and Rep. Loretta Sanchez join Newt Gingrich and Stephanie Cutter to debate Obamacare.
