TEAM OBAMA GRABS THE PITCHFORKS - The partnership between President Obama and big health insurance companies is under some serious strain as administration talking points suggest a populist pitch in a bid to resuscitate the president’s floundering new entitlement program. Ezekiel Emanuel, the leading architect of ObamaCare insisted on “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace” that Obama isn’t to blame for millions of cancelled policies, premium spikes and other disruptions. “The insurance decides how to make money. When the private companies decide to drop an individual, you blame Obama. He isn’t responsible for that,” said Emanuel, brother to former White House Chief of Staff turned Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

“The insurance decides how to make money.”

this is an alien concept to a neo-Marxist redistributionist.

Dumb insurance companies. They thought they were getting special perks from Bambi in exchange for giving up their business and getting guaranteed government business. Little did they know that this was but a prelude to getting rid of them altogether.

Sorry, guys... Under the bus with you.

Zeke is the architect of a cold calculating set of healthcare delivery directives based on the value of a human life to be “productive” to the state

in rationing care, both the old and the very young are expendable first

he and Goebbels would have been collegial pals

Seems their greed got the best of them.
Had they been historians, they would see how these fascist arrangements always work out.

When they go bad, their government “partner” never takes the blame.

Didn’t Zeke say that insurers were wanting to exit the individual market?

The insurance companies heard “30 million new customers” and sold their souls to the devil.
They were betting that they could just cancel the plans and people would flock to higher premium plans but now reality has kicked in and they now realize those people they just kicked off aren’t coming back. They will have a net loss of real paying customers now.

Funny..I always though Rahm looked like Goebbels. But this brother of his is a total insane idiot. Too bad they didn’t let him speak more or get interviews on air back in 2009/10

When the number of policy cancellations exceeds the original number of uninsured that Obamacare was supposed to help, that is when we need to go on a media offensive.
