Obama health care adviser Jennings leaving White House

Chris Jennings, a top adviser to President Barack Obama who played a key part in the roll-out of his signature healthcare law, is leaving the White House for health and family reasons, an aide told Reuters.

Jennings, who previously served in the Clinton administration, was brought on board last year before the flawed roll-out 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.

"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."
