Obamacare architect wants to die at age 75 – I wish him luck!

4

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, an architect of Obamacare, wants to die at age 75. If his name sounds familiar, there’s a good reason. “Zeke” is the older brother of former Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. Former Obama health policy advisor, Dr. Emanuel is now a member of Biden’s COVID-19 Advisory Board.

His views on euthanasia have been somewhat distorted, according to the doctor. What’s not distorted, however, are his views on healthcare rationing. Emanuel’s previous statements on rationing have been characterized as “allocation of very scarce medical interventions such as organs and vaccines.”

Emanuel outlined this in a 2009 article he co-wrote on the “Principles of scarce medical interventions.” Sounds like rationing to me.

Emanuel also wrote an article in 1996 for the Hastings Center Report titled “Where Civic Republicanism and Deliberate Democracy Meet.” He distinguished between the basic services that should be guaranteed to everybody from the discretionary medical services that are not guaranteed. Again, sounds like rationing.

A prolific medical and philosophical writer, Emanuel complains that his words are often selectively quoted, or even misquoted. And although he opposes legalized euthanasia, he believes that life after age 75 is not worth living.

“Seventy-five years is all I want to live,” the 63-year-old doctor wrote in an article for The Atlantic. Dr. Emanuel acknowledges that his family and friends think he’s crazy.

Living too long “robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world,” he wrote. “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic,” he added. Speak for yourself, grandpa!

Although Dr. Emanuel has not specified how he intends to die, he does plan to have a memorial service first. I’m praying for an invitation!

  1. He won’t let a Plandemic crisis go to waste and when 75 comes around he’ll want to remain.
    Jen Psaki’s sister got a cushy gig in the nepotism free lovable Uncle Joe regime.

    O/T-if we make a cursive font we can evade the younger fact checkers! (hee har)
    It will look like Greek or Cyrillic script to the enlightened evolved utopia building beings.

  2. How does America produce morons like this? The wisdom I received from elderly parents, grandparents and great grandparents during my life has been priceless. Liberalism doesn’t seem to run in my family; though there was Aunt Gin – after the adult beverage! She wasn’t much of a mentor, but was always the life of the party; even in her 80’s. When I consider Traitor Joe though, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel may be on to something. The flaw in Democrat ideology is that they see healthcare as an entitlement instead of a right. You have the right to all the healthcare you can afford, but you don’t have a right to make me pay for your healthcare.

  3. @ Geek,

    I have some aunts and uncles that are hardcore CPUSA and union for life that would vote for Howdy Doody if he had a (D) by his puppet strings.
    They have the coexist stickers and books by Oprah, haven’t talked to them in years and won’t be anytime soon.
    They used to have the best house in the fam with great view and now it is wall to wall particle board apartments and subdivision sectors chock full of replacements and gridlock with out of date roads not meant for tens of thousands of people in a small formerly rural county.
    Delusionol (h/t-C.H. Smith) has consequences.

  4. “…he does plan to have a memorial service first.”

    Will he give his own eulogy? If so, he can exaggerate and tell himself how “great” he was… err…is.
