Megyn Kelly Ezekiel Emanuel Interview blames Fox News

It's hard to even know where to go with liberal progressives in today's political climate. In what was supposed to be the shining example of medical insurance and care for the masses modeling the Socialist utopia Barack Obama has dreamed up in his head with Obamacare, it instead has turned out to be an unmitigated disaster.

Not only has President Obama completely retreated from his unequivocal promise of, "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan," which in itself makes the whole system suspect, and we all now know the Healthcare.gov website is a total failure, and to top it all off, Obamacare signups are only at 10% of where they should be just to make the system break even.

But for the architect of the entire plan, Ezekiel Emanuel (brother of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel), that still isn't enough to convince him of the incompetence of his boss, Barack Obama, no, he wants to blame Fox News for the Obamacare website disaster.

Liberalism knows no bounds of blame shifting and deception. No matter how many times they try something and it fails, they simply blame someone else and try again and blame again.

Over the years, lefties have blamed Fox News for all sorts of things. Now, via ObamaCare architect Ezekiel Emanuel, we learn that the nation’s sole non-liberal television news operation is actually responsible for the HealthCare.gov debacle. In a debate with FNC host Megyn Kelly on her program last night, Ezekiel argued that Fox News Channel was really to blame for the fact that almost no one has signed up for the Obamacare insurance exchanges that are the center-piece of the law.

“You and your colleagues were constantly criticizing, trying to underfund it and trying to make sure it didn’t work,” a very combative Emanuel argued as Kelly pressed him on whether the Obama Administration actually knew that many people who had purchased health insurance in the individual market were going to lose their coverage thanks to mandates by the Affordable Care Act.

“It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. ‘We’re going to try to do everything we can to make it fail and then when it fails, we’re going to say, oh why did it fail?’” Emanuel said.

“I don’t think Fox News had anything to do with the rollout of HealthCare.gov. As far as I know, we didn’t touch that Web site,” Kelly replied before sarcastically dismissing Emanuel’s attempt to shift the blame. “It was all our fault,” she retorted.

In the discussion, Emanuel, who is the brother of former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, also provided a good example of challenging what he perceived as biased statistics--something Republican television guests rarely do--as he refused to accept Kelly's claim that 5 million people who had purchased individual policies were going to be cancelled as a result of ObamaCare. Emanuel preferred instead to talk about 3 million. “Only on Fox is it 5 million,” he insisted.
