According to billionaire Michael Bloomberg, cancer treatment to elderly Americans should be denied to solve the problem of overcrowding hospitals.
The former of New York City made the suggestion in 2011 as he was sitting Shiva with a Jewish family.
The comment by Bloomberg was recorded as he said if a “95-years-old” was to “show up with prostate cancer” at a hospital, treatment should be denied in order to shore up resources.
Bloomberg said “If you show up with prostate cancer and you’re 95 years old, we should say, ‘Go and enjoy … 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. Society’s not ready to do that yet,” Bloomberg added.
The comments came after a family member told Bloomberg how they had to wait in a New York City emergency room for 73 hours before their loved one died.
Bloomberg also suggested Obamacare was driving up healthcare costs for Americans and predicting at its current trajectory, the policy could bankrupt the country.
“It’s going to get worse with the health care bill and with the government’s cutbacks,” 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.”
Bloomberg explaining how healthcare will “bankrupt us,” unless we deny care to the elderly.
