Bloomberg: We Can No Longer Provide Health Care to the Elderly

Another video of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has resurfaced. Back in 2011, the billionaire paid his respects to the Segal family for the passing of Rabbi Moshe Segal of Flatbush. During that time, Jewish families undergo Shiva, a 7-day mourning period. Bloomberg stopped by to issue his condolences to the family.

Interestingly enough, the then-mayor used the opportunity to talk about overcrowding in emergency rooms, Obamacare and a range of other issues, The Yeshiva World reported at the time. One of those topics included denying health care to the elderly.

"They'll fix what they can right away. If you're bleeding, they'll stop the bleeding. If you need an x-ray, you're gonna have to wait," Bloomberg said. "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."

But don't worry. He believes he has a way of addressing cost concerns.

"Not only do we have a problem but we gotta sit here and say which things we're gonna do and which things we're not. No one wants to do that," he said. "If you show up with prostate cancer, you're 95-years-olds, we should say, 'Go and enjoy. Have nice– live a long life.' There's no cure and there's nothing we can do. If you're a young person, we should do something about it. Society’s not willing to do that, yet. So they're gonna bankrupt us."

Who is Michael Bloomberg to decide who should and should not receive health care treatments? He has a ton of money and we know he'd do everything in his power to get the best doctors and treatment available if he or his loved ones became ill. They wouldn't be told they're too old or too broke, would they?

And who would be impacted by this decision? At what point is someone too old to treat? 60? 75? 80? What's the arbitrary number, Mike? Whatever random number you decide on?

What about those who have chronic illnesses, like diabetes or multiple sclerosis? Do they suddenly stop receiving treatment once they hit a certain age, because they're no longer deemed worthy?

And here I thought Democrats were supposed to want to take care of anybody and everybody. Guess not.
