Obama Healthcare Adviser Leaving White House for Personal Reasons

Thursday, 23 Jan 2014 03:22 PM

 

Chris Jennings, President Barack Obama's healthcare adviser, is leaving the White House for health and family reasons, multiple reports say.

“If not for his health, I have no doubt would stayed longer. He certainly planned to,” a source told The Washington Post. The paper said Jennings had planned to stay until the end of the president's second term.

Jennings, who previously served in the Clinton administration, was brought on board last year before the flawed rollout of the program created one of the biggest political problems Obama has faced since entering office.

"Chris served the country at a time when he was needed most," White House chief of staff Denis McDonough said in a statement, according to Reuters.

"He will be deeply missed but we all wish him the best and know that he will continue to be a key player in health care and always a champion for quality affordable health care for all Americans."
