The dark subject matter was brought to light by ObamaCare architect Ezekiel Emanuel, who wrote a column entitled “Why I Hope to Die at 75.”

He wrote, in part:

But here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of 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, 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.

The hosts of “The Five” sounded off on the comments, which Dana Perino blasted as “outrageous.”

“He’s basically saying to anyone over 75 that you are a burden,” Greg Gutfeld stated.

Kimberly Guilfoyle charged Emanuel with devaluing human life, basically saying, “You have an expiration, like a carton of milk or a 12 pack of eggs.”
