What will medical care look like under Democrats?
Well, if Bloomberg gets into office, you apparently lose your right to coverage as an elderly American.
We Can’t Do Anything
One of the biggest criticisms of universal health care has been that the government will dictate who receives care and who does not.
The major concern being that our elderly will be ignored simply because of the high-risk factor in treating them or on the fact they won’t have the lifespan to “justify” the treatment.
Bloomberg, if elected, would apparently like to make that decision regardless of having Medicare for All or not.
During a recent appearance, someone snapped some video of Bloomberg addressing this issue.
He maintained the cost of healthcare is going to bankrupt the country, but he has a way to make it better.
His solution… stop treating the elderly.
Bloomberg stated that society needs to get to the point that “If you show up with cancer & you’re 95 years old, we should say…there’s no cure, we can’t do anything.
“A young person, we should do something. Society’s not willing to do that, yet.”
Bloomberg explaining how healthcare will “bankrupt us,” unless we deny care to the elderly.

Tell That to the Families
Now, can you imagine your father or grandparent being told they can’t have healthcare simply because they are too old?
So, Bloomberg is either lying to tell people what he thinks they want to hear or he is literally advocating for simply ignoring our elderly to save some money.
All Bloomberg has been doing as of late is apologizing for comments he made while he was the mayor of New York and several years after.
Now, he is going to have this added to the pile, only these comments were made during this campaign, so this will be far harder to apologize for.
There is also the fact that Bloomberg is 78 years old, so I would like him to explain at what age he will forego medical treatment to support his own position.
