Megyn Kelly interviewed a key ObamaCare architect Zeke Emanuel over the disastrous Healthcare.gov rollout, the substandard sign-up numbers, and why so many people are losing their plans.
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel has been one of the Obama administration’s proponents of “death panels,” a Palin-coined euphemism for when the state controls the life and death of its subjects through rationing boards like the Independent Payment Advisory Board (or IPAB). Ezekiel is also the brother of former White House Chief of Staff and current Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. That’s right — “dead fish” and “death panels” are brothers.
Megyn Kelly, whose “Kelly File” has soared to the top prime-time cable spot in her time slot, was fairly restrained with the pompous Zeke Emanuel, who kept talking over her and insisting he hadn’t been given sufficient time to lecture the American people about taking our medicine.
Remarkably, Zeke Emanuel said at one point it is “irrelevant” what the current ObamaCare sign-up numbers are, telling Megyn Kelly she was making a “false assertion” that it is not on track. Kelly rebutted that Sebelius won’t disclose the numbers, and the American people will decide if it’s irrelevant or not.
Furthermore, Emanuel dodged answering the question if anyone in the Obama administration should be held accountable. Of course, all the viewers got were paternalistic grandstanding and circumlocutions, which is to be expected from an Obama administration apparatchik. Megyn Kelly rightly concluded that the answer is “no.”
A note about “death panels.” As the extremely left-wing Slate boasted in a recent article, “Canada has death panels (and that’s a good thing)”; and its conclusion: “Modern medicine increasingly allows us to extend life indefinitely, and so the question is no longer whether we can ‘play God,’ but when, how, and who should do so.”
In other words, in the eyes of leftists like Dr. Zeke Emanuel, government is god.
