Obamacare Architect: It's Republicans Fault The Law is Collapsing, or Something

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the key architects of Obamacare, made an appearance on The Kelly File Wednesday night as healthcare premiums around the country exponentially spike for a sixth year in a row thanks to the law. First, some context about the current state of Obamacare and the cost of healthcare for Americans forced into the government mandated program: 

During the interview, Kelly corned Emanuel on the issue of rising costs and a lack of young, healthy people in the Obamacare system. She also played clips from a 2014 interview where he claimed the exchanges would become a "stable marketplace" to buy insurance. His response to the law being in shambles and on the verge of collapse is as predictable as it is ridiculous: It's the fault of Republicans. 

Watch:

As a reminder, Obamacare was pushed through in the middle of the night by former Majority Leader Harry Reid without a single Republican vote in 2010.
