Former Vice President Joe Biden today announced that he is putting together what he is calling his “Public Health Advisory Committee” to give him and the rest of us advice on how to deal with Coronavirus and it includes Ezekiel Emanuel who while putting together Obamacare had advice for the public on how to handle a pandemic of just the kind we are now facing.

Ezekiel Emanuel is the brother of Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama’s White House Chief of Staff, and is and was considered something of an expert on health care. He was called in as Obamacare was being designed and included in the plan a number of provisions that most critics believed would lead to rationing directed at limiting care to the elderly to save costs. Ezekiel himself wrote later that he wanted to die at seventy-five and believed that others should want the same by letting nature take its course once they reach that age.

In an October 2014 article for the Atlantic, he claimed that once one reaches seventy-five “renders us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death, but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, and the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.”

He suggested that if at some point we should face another more potent flu pandemic than the H1N1 pandemic of 2009 that claimed, according to the Centers for Disease Control, as many a half a million lives worldwide we should limit measures to protect the most vulnerable among us. This advice was directed not just at the government, but at those most likely to be threatened by something like the coronavirus … the elderly. He suggested quite emphatically that those over seventy-five should essentially forgo treatment because anyone who has reached that age should want … like himself … to die anyway as, in his opinion, life after seventy-five really isn’t worth living.

Consider these words from Ezekiel: “Flu shots are out. Certainly, if there were to be a flu pandemic, a younger person who has yet to live a complete life ought to get the vaccine or any viral drugs.”

He seemed to say that the elderly should welcome such a death because “unlike the decays associated with chronic conditions, death from these infections is quick and relatively painless.”

One doubts that if Mr. Biden himself is exposed to coronavirus he will follow his “Health Advisory Committee” member’s advice. After all, his former Senate colleagues when confronted with the Obamacare Ezekiel had constructed for Biden’s old boss decided that while his advice might be good enough for the rest of us they’d keep their health care.

Seems to me ol biteme shouldn’t be appointing anyone, to any thing…….
brother of so-in-so, and the relative of who is and the wife of so-and so… what OUR PRESIDENT should be listening to, is the behind the scenes plans on how the corrupt are going to siphon off the miilions they have not been getting since President Trump blocked their supply lines! (i.e. the southern border, the port of where-ever in cali)
When they have shut down everything because of a flu, (yes, check the yearly flu deaths from every normal flu years statistics), it will be the perfect time to release all the indictments for criminal activity, sedition, and treason, and CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY, (think virus release?) while the country and half the world are home with watchful eyes.
These people will not be able to walk down the street, when the truth comes out! They are willing to kill off huge amounts of a world population, to keep in control….
NO ONE WALKS AWAY FROM THIS!

I couldn’t have said it better. I think the best is yet to come during this shut down pandemic and the deployment of the National Guard in several states. Here’s hoping!

If this guy thinks you should let nature take its course after 75, Uncle Joe should be putting together his pallbearers and not some Corona virus taskforce

Agree with George and Spungy52, butt out Biden and support your president instead of causing more confusion. You had years to do good things, your time is up.

My daughter, a high school Senior, and I were talking about how Leftists are saying it’s racist to call coronavirus “WuFlu,” or “Chinese flu.” She said her peers are calling it “Boomer Remover.” The Bernie Brigades are hoping we all just “do our ‘patriotic duty’ and just die already.”

Too bad a virus hasn’t been cultivated to eradicate the intellectually challenged…

He seems to think he’s the president! Just like obama is the only ex-president to stay in Washington DC and run things from the sidelines!
