Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said in a 2011 video that elderly cancer patients should be denied treatment in order to lower health care costs.
“All of these costs keep going up, nobody wants to pay any more money, and at the rate we’re going, health care is going to bankrupt us. We’ve got to sit here and say which things we’re going to do, and which things we’re not, nobody wants to do that. Y’know, if you show up with prostate cancer, you’re 95 years old, we should say, Go and enjoy. Have a nice [inaudible]. Live a long life. There’s no cure, and we can’t do anything.’ If you’re a young person, we should do something about it.
So, in other words, the government will decide who lives and who dies. Republicans were laughed at over their concerns about “death panels.” Yet Democrats keep coming back to the same idea but we all knew death panels would be a pillar of the liberal left.
His presidential campaign didn’t return a request for comment.
The New York billionaire has faced increased scrutiny over past statements as he has continued to rise in Democratic primary polls.
Bloomberg’s fellow Democrats have criticized him for his past aggressive defense of stop-and-frisk policies in New York has led to criticism from fellow Democrats.
How many of you would like to see your mom, dad, or grandparents treated this way? Michael Bloomberg knows this will never apply to him. He has enough money to pay for any health care he needs and, of course, money talks.
