32 House Republicans call for Sebelius’s resignation

A group of 32 House Republicans have signed on to a letter calling on President Obama to ask for Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius's resignation over glitches on the HealthCare.gov Web site.

"The scope of the problem is so great that, were this a private company or military command, the CEO or general would have been fired," the members write. "We are, therefore, calling on you to hold Secretary Sebelius accountable for the fiasco that is HealthCare.gov and ask for her resignation."

Most of the signatories come from the tea party/cast-iron conservative wing of the party.

They are: Reps. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Bill Shuster (R-Pa.), Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.), Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.), Randy Weber (R-Texas), Ted Yoho (R-Fla.), Larry Bucshon (R-Ind.), Andy Harris (R-Md.), Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.), Walter Jones (R-N.C.), Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Paul Broun (R-Ga.), Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.), Steve Southerland (R-Fla.), Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Roger Williams (R-Tex.), Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.), Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio), Jim Renacci (R-Ohio), Pete Olson (R-Tex.), Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.), Steve Stockman (R-Tex.) and Doug LaMalfa (R-Calif.).

Here is the letter.
