Bloomberg Takes Scary China-Like Position on Health Care


 

How many of you think the government should decide what treatments you’re able to participate in for serious diseases, such as cancer? Take a moment and process that question. Now, how many of you think the government should decide whether you get any treatment at all? Should they decide whether your life is worth living out or should that be a choice between you, your family, and your doctor?

If you watched any of the Super Bowl commercials you may remember the Budweiser commercial on “typical Americans”. The theme, here, is one of American pride that I remember seeing a lot of when I was growing up. Americans are always striving to be better and do better.

The American Exceptionalism ideal launched America to the top of the mountain, to be admired by all others across the world. If there was a ceiling that couldn’t be reached then some American broke through that ceiling. If there was an idea that was impossible then some American made it possible. We don’t believe that things can’t be done just because someone says so.

America values life, freedom, and opportunity. That’s not how Bloomberg sees America, especially when it comes to healthcare and life or death. Instead, he takes a position that sounds eerily similar to what we’re seeing in China right now.

Story continues below:

While talking about his solution to healthcare and the rising costs associated, Mike Bloomberg says this:

“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"

If you and your doctor think you can beat cancer, Bloomberg says that may not be for you to decide. Instead, perhaps there should be some policy that says "look, the odds aren't in your favor and aren't really in the government's best interest so just ride off into the sunset, now."

Battling healthcare costs is a real issue for Americans. We have to do something about it, no doubt. However, this is exactly the kind of thing that Americans have overcome throughout our short history. President Trump has said, many times, that he is working on a plan to bring transparency and accountability to the cost of healthcare, while preserving coverage for pre-existing conditions and valuing life.

Shouldn't we give Americans a chance to solve the problem without some sort of death panel that decides whose life is worthy and whose isn't? Does anyone think that Mike Bloomberg, and other elites, will play by the same rules when it comes to them and their loved ones? Do you really think Mike would play by his own rules? Of course not. These are the same folks that didn't think Obamacare was good enough for them but it was definitely good enough for us peasants.

Should a democrat get into the White House in 2021 this may be the new America. One that looks a lot more like China than the America of old. I don't know about you but I certainly am not ready to lay waste to the idea of American exceptionalism. I'm not ready to give up my right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. America is great, can be even greater, and can make the world a better place for all. Here's hoping we can stay that way.

  1. Bloomberg has very close ties and much business with China so I don’t trust him. Especially when he says not to treat seniors but just tell them they have had a nice long life and have a nice day. That is inhumane and so not American. He has no compassion for any people. In fact, he told one of his female employees “TO KILL IT” when she told him she was pregnant.

  2. So just ‘kill it’ was Bloomberg’s advice ? But, isn’t that what the abortion business is all about? And doesn’t the Democratic Party endorse abortion? That’s what they advertise, isn’t it? It’s time that registered Democrats really think about their Party’s platform and decide if that is what they really believe.

    1. You said ‘Democrats should really think about their Party’s platform’. Well sorry, that ain’t gonna happen. Democrats came to power by lying to their constituents, and brainwashing them from grade school up with those lies. Democrat hard-liners people seemingly cannot think for themselves but must have direction, gladly supplied by a complicit main-stream media.

      The entire Democrat party, constituents and all, consist of liars, spinners and apologists and all of them are robots.

  3. There are natural ways to help health and diet changes like no gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO/food with a label/heated oils and supplements like vitamins/good oils/minerals..probiotic…LDN..detoxing and more that people can do that is cheap. Prevention/fixing the root cause is needed. Chemo/radiation may kill a person and only 3% may survive Chemo. They die from the treatment not the cancer. All can learn how to take care of their health. Drugs may not help and are expensive. They may only cover symptoms. Natural help is cheaper. Paying $350 to a doctor for someone with a cold who may prevent the cold or flu by fish oil is sad. MS drugs maybe $8000+ per month and may keep them disabled. Chemo is expensive. People seen to think if it is expensive it is better help than cheap natural help. They are mistaken. Many don’t want to change their diet and expect the doctor to fix them. Eating for taste and not for health is not good. The Asian/Celiac diet may help most health issues. Promoting natural help and not letting Conventional medicine pretend they are the only way to deal with health issues is needed. People need to wake up. The American diet of gluten/GMO/high sugar/bad fat/chemicals is hurting people and vaccines/antibiotics/drugs/Chem trails/heavy metals/EMF/5G and more. Fix the root cause. Help all with natural help.

  4. Its the freeloaders who drive the price of medical care up. Medicaid is 100% paid, but Medicare is only 80% and no dental or eye glasses, yet Medicare is what pays for Medicaid. Then you have the Migrates who want immediate medical care. Well I’m 74 and can only get 15 minutes per 6 months to see my doctor. I have to wait for months to get an MRI. Then wait another 2 months to get an appointment to see an orthopedic, because I’m on Medicare. This Moran Bernie Sanders wants Medicare for all, so all the dead beats will be getting needed care that they will then slander and not appreciate, not to mention all the illegals that will flock to the border. What the Dem’s won’t consider is that the Obama Administration will broke with 2 years left. Social Security didn’t have any money to buy bonds, so the Federal Reserve stepped in and purchase bonds for the next 18 months. Then the Treasury Dept just started to print money that wasn’t backed by anything. Trump came and save the day by getting rid of all those restrictions on businesses and freed up the taxes on the wealthy that enable them to bring 2 trillion dollars back into this economy. Trump’s stock market gain over 10 trillion dollars in value which in turn made all the mistake of the Obama Administration go away. There’s no help for health care unless you make people pay for it so that they will appreciate the aid.

  5. You can bet your boots the “elite” in DC will be exempt from the healthcare policies they impose on the rest of us, just as they did with Obamacare. That old crow, Bloomberg, has demonstrated he has no respect for other senior citizens, the very people who made it possible for all the things he is endowed with today. Seniors paid taxes all their lives to support our towns, cities, infrastructure, education and many other things all our citizens use and live with today. Now he wants to dispose of us like a moldy piece of bread. He has no respect for older life and no respect for future or new life. “Just kill it” was his suggestion to a pregnant woman. This man makes me sick. He’s a senior too. How in Gods name do we get slugs like this in government? Why do these kind of people go on living? At 77 he needs to reconsider his position. When God decides it’s time for him to go, his billions will not save him. In fact he might find himself looking straight into Hell for his greedy, sinful, sick intentions and actions.
