Michael Bloomberg Basically Endorsed Death Panels in 2011

Ah, remember when Obamacare was in its infancy? Remember when Nancy Pelosi told America that we would only find out what was in the bill after Democrats passed the bill? Remember when Obama told the Lie of the Century: If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor? We might hesitate to call those the “good ol’ days,” but hey, at least Obama was just a quasi-socialist and not an out-and-out commie. Sad thing about Democrats: They just keep getting worse.

But back to Obama’s first term for a moment. You may remember that in August of 2009, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin had this to say about the many cloaked dangers of the Affordable Care Act:

“The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”

Death panels! Is it possible to be nostalgic for dirty political fights?

Obama’s death panels didn’t come to fruition, but then again, he never got that public option he wanted, either. On the other hand, there were apparently some liberals (even those masquerading as Republicans) who quite liked Palin’s idea of choosing who gets healthcare according to their worth to society.

In 2011, a certain New York City mayor seemed interested.

“If you’re bleeding, we’ll stop the bleeding. If you need an x-ray, you’re gonna have to wait,” Michael Bloomberg said in a newly-resurfaced clip where he explained how our medical system ought to work. “All of these costs keep going up, no one wants to pay any more money. And at the rate we’re going, health care is going to bankrupt us.

“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,’” he continued. “A young person, we should do something about it. Society’s not willing to do that yet.”

We’re sure the “OK, boomer” crowd loves the idea of denying medical care to people according to their age, but we’re not sure this kind of talk will appeal to older Democrats (to say nothing of Republican voters in the general election).

But in a week that’s also seen Bloomberg denigrate farmers and declare that black and Latinos are unfit for the workplace, we can hardly say we’re surprised.

What do you think?

    • I’m 74 and in my blue state we have the best health and at the top for life expectancy but you wingnuts drink, smoke and die. You deserve it. Learn to think for yourself.

    • This is the end-result, sorry to say, of the Medi-care, Medic-aid, disaster that Democrats, and Liberals, have foisted on the American tax-payer. The fact that they “just refuse to pay the cost” of Health Care, is the very reason we have the fiasco we have today. I remember as a young man you could go to a Doctor, and Health care was conditioned on the severity, NOT YOUR FUCKING AGE!!! Why don’t we just cut off HealthCare for Mike Bloomberg, after all he’s almost 80, seems like a good enough, arbitrary age to me???Truth of the matter is, these Loony-Tuned Liberals and Democrats can’t give away America’s bounty, and wealth fast enough, to get re-elected. The Blacks and Latino’s have been lied to and swindled for the last 50 years, since LBJ told the American people,(Certainly as a snide, and side remark)that the “NIGGERS would be voting for the Democratic Party for the next 100 years”…well that is one PROMISE the Democrats have kept. I feel so sorry for the Blacks who still can’t see the desperate measures taken every year to keep them “On the Democratic Plantations”…Thanks Obama, for the “Hope and Change” you promised.

  1. this country is sure to go to hell with leaders like liars such as barack obama and racists the size of bloomberg (noticed that i did not used caps for the names of obama/bloomberg and thats just 2,there are many more where those 2 came from in this country) politicians are incredible humans whose agendas are not the country or the precious constitution that they all claim to be protecting, no its not, its their own asses that they are looking out for.its sad but it also is the truth.the likes of pelosi,shiff, shumer and nadler that are at the head of the line of destroyers claiming the constitution is what they are concerned with and protecting!!! its all about them and it hasnt changed and will never change!!!another problem here in this country is the voters that vote but have no clue what they are voting about, no clue what so ever. they think that they are doing their patriatic best by voting but little do they know that what they are truly doing is contrivuting and fertilizing to the infestation.poor country that i love, it stands no chance of survibal….God bless us all!!! how can it be that there is such a thing or group of people in this country such as lobbiests that line the pockets of our beloved politicians with money so they can vote in favor of the lobbiests desires and the hell with the people!!!

    • Pedro Reyes I quite agree with you, when people voted for Obama yrs back I could not believe it, those votes were taken right in to what lies he was telling. I listen to Obama and his “slick” tongue and decided NOT to vote for him. To begin with he is not even an American Citizen he was Born in Kenya Africa and Taken to Hawaii by his mother. Everyone said he was the first black president NO he was not and cannot ever claim that, his mother was White and his dad was black which means Obama is half white and half black mulletto.. Obama is also muslim and that is not a problem but his loyalty was and still is to his beliefs so much so he vow after he was sworn in that he would destroy our country and just about succeeded and then when he founded Obama care the premiums were and are so high no one could afford medical treatment and many people died. So somehow those voters who voted him in office, either those voters did not really listen to Obama at the time of his campaigning or those voters did not really pay attention to realize this man was gonna try to finish America off. Because Obama WAS convincing while he was campaigning and a lot of people got taken in by him. Now we have Bloomberg who is vying for office and he is promising to let the elderly died from illnesses like cancer and some will ignore what he is saying and try to vote him in office this Nov and then there go our elderly. President Trump has come through for America, brought back jobs, helped repair this country again and done MUCH good for us. Trump Loves America and IS Making Us Great Again.

  2. “Death Panels” are NOT FAIR to the individual who has paid an UNFAIRLY high TAX for Socialized Medicine all their lives and then DENIED it. Go tell THAT to JIMMY CARTER! Why should a YOUNG person be given medical car when they haven’t much PAID into it?!? Socialism/Communism is a HORRIBLE form of government which should NEVER be allowed here in the U.S. Team Trump and his allies 2020.
