U of Chicago Medical Center exec and Obama pal Eric Whitaker at White House health forum

| 1 Comment

WASHINGTON--University of Chicago medical center executive Eric Whitaker--close friend of President Obama and White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett-- has a seat at the table at today's Obama White House health care forum. Whitaker was in D.C. a few days ago to take in a Wizards-Bulls game with the president.

The panel Whitacker is on is moderated by Jarrett, the former chair of the U of C medical center board--and the facility where First Lady Michelle Obama used to work. The other chair is Zeke Emanuel, the noted bioethicist who is the brother of White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.

Unfortunately Obama is showing the gap in his understanding of critical elements at the core of what drives America.
