Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the health-policy adviser at the White Houses Office of Management and Budget -- who has been caricatured by conservatives as a Dr. Death seeking to pull the I.V.s out of your grandparents arms in the name of cost containment -- is not happy.
Asked by ABC News in an interview about the thoroughly discredited claim by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to paint his philosophical writings as evidence -- along with a provision providing optional end of life counseling in the House Democrats health care reform bill -- that President Obama wants to set up death panels to deny medical treatments to seniors and the disabled, including her son Trig, Emanuel, brother of White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, does not hold back.
Its an absolute outrage that you would take first of all a provision written in the bill, Emanuel says, a provision allowing for doctors to talk to patients about end of life care, and turn it into the suggestion that were going to have euthanasia boards -- thats a complete misreading of whats there. Its just trying to scare people.

The only thing that outrages Left Wing Extremists is the Truth.
Pray for America and Lady Palin
funny how people with such Biblical names can be so non-Biblical in their politics and behaviors
I guess Zeke doesn’t bother to read the stuff he spews.
It sucks to be him when he can have his own published Nazi-esque quotes hurled back in his face.
Looks like whacko Zeke is throwing his own words under the bus. Boy it’s getting pretty cramped under that thing, they are gonna need a bigger bus. Whacko Zeke is outraged, quick, hide the elderly and young children
Hospitals already have death panels. They get together and decide on the prognosis of the patient and if needed what is most cost effective. You hear stories all the time about doctors going to court to get the plug pulled on a patient.
Zeke....buddy, you are an outrage...to humanity.
The follow up question ought to have been, “do you think the fact that you’re a political hack has anything to do with people being suspicious?”
Zeke, go back to your hiking trip vacay in the Dolomites-
you’ve done enough damage already
we’ll take it from here
Looks like Victory....since the Senate Finance committee is now saying they are going to remove the End-of-life Provision from the bill
Its indefensible....Palin told ‘em what page it was.
Of course they didn’t ask him that, that would involve actual JOURNALISM. Silly rabbit, The All Barack Channel will never want to undermine their messiah
“they are gonna need a bigger bus.”
Maybe buy out Greyhound.
Ol’ Zeke has every right to be enraged. Go ahead Zeke, let it all out. Nobody gives a shi* what he and the brother he road in on think.
Oh dear, how could I have forgotten that!? < sigh > I wonder if ABC is going to enjoy being as hated as NBC if they keep up their decision to only tell barack’s side of the equation.
A family of vermin, the Emanuels.
