Bloomberg Says Elderly Should Not Get Medical Care to Save Money

February 18, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

Michael Bloomberg may have just lost his shot to get the Democrat’s 2020 nomination based on a resurfaced video in which he says the elderly should not get full medical care in order to save money.

Here’s a partial transcript via Newsbusters:

“If you’re bleeding, we’ll stop the bleeding. If you need an x-ray, you’re gonna have to wait,” Bloomberg told a Jewish family, explaining his view on how our medical system should work.

“All of these costs keep going up, no one wants to pay any more money,” he continued. “And at the rate we’re going, health care is going to bankrupt us. So not only do we have a problem, it’s gonna be [unintelligible] and say which things we’re gonna do and which things we’re not. No one wants to do that.”

“If you show up with prostate cancer, and you’re 95 years old, we should say, ‘Go and enjoy…Lead a long life. There’s no cure, we can’t do anything.’ A young person, we should do something about it. Society’s not willing to do that yet.”

Given that the largest group of regular voters in this country are senior citizens this kind of statement will not go over well, at all.

Not to mention the fact that it is morally wrong. If doctors have the ability to heal someone, they should heal them regardless of age and regardless of cost.

So far what we have learned about Michael Bloomberg is that he is an elitist who disdains farmers, factors workers, anyone who owns a gun, and pretty much anyone who disagrees with him.

      Isn’t it interesting that millions of born in the USA Americans PAID INTO MEDICARE, SOCIAL SECURITY all of their working lives and yet we have clowns like this claiming they would either take it away or worse yet provide illegal immigrants with health benefits they have not paid a dime for.

    Bloomberg is nothing more than a Nazi Dictator “sound familiar”? He will steal your guns, your voice, and then your freedom! He butchered New York City and he will destroy America as well! He hates everything America represents and stands for that is Constitutional!

      Bloomberg should have everything taken from him and see what he thinks then. He would rather give everything to the illegals that they didn’t work for, and take away from the people that have worked all their lives for what little we really get. This man is REALLY INSANE. His brain is missing. God will pay him back one day.

    Ever since Biden announced he might take Michael Obama as his running mate – he acts like he is trying to lose and his campaign has gone down the toilet. Bloomers was rising in the polls – then he announced that he would take Hillary Clinton as his runnong mate and ditto – campaign in the crapper. Bllomers has pissed off the seniors in this article – he recently said that all blue collar workers and farmers are morons. Serms like he is trying his best to turn people against him. I wonder did the DNC force the running mates on Biden & Bloomers?

    He is no different than ANY of the so-called CORRUPT “presidential hopefuls”..They ALL have the same RABID LUST for POWER and CONTROL over “we subjects” in this country. Open your eyes America, and vote OUT all DEMOCOMMUNISTS or suffer the “consequences” of your actions as any “rights” you thought you have will be systematically removed by the COMMUNISTS, as well as your bank accounts, (already being discussed in case the banks start to go under AGAIN) 401K’s (if you have one), and any “raises”, “tax breaks” that are already being talked about as being REMOVED and “returned to the “government”, if the SCUM gain back control. Start LISTENING closely to their NEFARIOUS “plans” for the American people if they are elected back into power.

    Bloomberg is an old guy. So if he gets cancer, will he give up having medical care because it is just a waste of money on him? I think not! No vote from me. This is creepy.

    Bloomberg is perhaps the best (worst) example of elitism of modern times. He simply knows that he is better than anyone else, and he knows more about how you should live your life than you do… and he wonders why people hate the rich. It is my hope that voters send that worthless bastard packing. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if a concrete truck fell out of the sky and turned him into a greasy spot. You think he’s descended from Marie Antoinette?

    Giving advice like that won’t help with the elder vote! Most people work their entire lives? And like automobiles more things begin to wear out as they become older. I hope the advice you give, you adhere to as your age increases each day! And for the elderly who have worked hard and have done the very best they could with few regrets? Ipray your retired days are good to you and you deserve all the things you never had the time for in your younger years. Best Wishes to you all!

    I think Bloomberg should visit St. Jude’s Hospital in Tennessee, and drop a billion for them and those innocent children, victims of cancer.
    Instead, he wastes his money on politics. He is a disgrace. Should we not give care to 95-year-olds with cancer or should it be 94 or 93 0r maybe when you start receiving SS. How could somebody be so rich and so stupid?

    If America votes for BLOOMBERG they have to be the dumbest people on earth. He will take your savings, health care and turn you into a Communist Nation. You will be in jail and wondering why I am here. The reason, you are stupid, stupid stupid! because you have elected a “DICTATOR” to run the country. Once you go in this direction you don’t come back. Just look at these countries under Communist Dictator Rule. If you can read please do so and then make your decision who to vote for, THE GREATEST NATION IN THE WORLD OR A DICTATOR TO DESTROY WHAT WE HAVE BUILD AND FOUGHT FOR TO ENJOY. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!

    This just magnifies my resolve not to vote for “Blooming Idiot”. I cringe everytime I see his commercial showing Obama seemingly endorsing him. My hope is that people notice as I have that these are 7 year old mayorial campaign commercials the last time he ran for mayor of NYC. I’m surprised he’s being allowed to use them as Obama has refused to endorse anyone for predident at this point in the race. There isn’t a Democrat running that intends to do anything to help our country or its legal citizens. Their only goal is to defeat Trump. Who wants a president whose only goal is defeat the incumbant president?! They will have accomplished their only campaign promise before they even take office!
    As far as anyone wanting Hillary as a running mate, they either have a death wish or don’t really want to be president to begin with. If America wanted her back in the White House she would have been president instead of Trump.
    Enough of my ranting for now.
    A former Democrat, who got wise.

    Bloomberg, I’ve been on this earth 84 years, You should put the millions of dollars your wasting on this campaign to the homeless, poor, the tired, hungry, just like the LADY in the middle of the river says on her PEDESTAL, in these UNITED STATES. And stop all this B/S your trying to sell. You feel when a CITIZEN becomes to a certain age , He should go home and enjoy the rest of his life without medical service. You sound like a fellow in 1940’S who thought the same way about JEWS. You know him he killed 6,000,000, of your people.

    Hey, Mike! I’m a Trauma Nurse and a Radiology Tech. You’d best hope that you never, ever come under my care. Because after that remark, I will for sure let you die. Oh, and by the way, I’m also a small farm owner. And I can tell you that it takes much more than just sticking a seed in the ground, to successfully produce a crop. You’re just another self-righteous, bigoted, sexist fool, who seems to think that because you have so much money that we should all bow down to you. Guess again! I bow down to no-one. Least of all you self-aggrandizing, Socio-Demons who want to ruin this country and are only out for power and more money. Go f*&k yourself!
