Health And Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius showed her appreciation to her department's employees after Obamacare enrollment surpassed the key seven million mark.
CNN obtained a note she wrote to her staff Tuesday afternoon thanking them for the progress.
Sebelius had been criticized last fall for the botched rollout of the Obamacare exchanges on the healthcare.gov website.
She even faced some calls for her resignation
But the department re-worked the website to handle record traffic for Monday's open enrollment deadline.
White House officials say not everyone who has selected a health plan has yet paid for it.
