This is a video of Michael Bloomberg talking about government healthcare rationing.
This video of Bloomberg saying we should deny care to people once they're past a certain age (because it isn't worth it) is everything about him which is so awful.https://t.co/iL1FGf3Ha0

Let me make this perfectly clear. This is not a Jewish value. Absolutely and without equivocation, in no school of Jewish teaching would this be considered acceptable.
It is a duty to choose life.
A doctor might say “at 95, I don’t recommend treatment because the side effects of chemotherapy will kill you faster than cancer.”
But to say “at 95, it’s just not worth the money to treat you” is evil.
It opens the door to some bureaucrat deciding what the value of all human life might be. Do we stop treating people for cancer at age 70? How old does someone need to be before we decide even a blood transfusion or a course of antibiotics is too expensive?
What about Bloomberg himself? He’s 78 years old. He would be 82 at the end of his first term. If he wins a second term and gets cancer is he too old or is he special because he’s President and a billionaire?
Of course, he thinks he’s special and the rules don’t apply to him.
Bloomberg can call himself many things, but he can’t call himself a Jew anymore. He’s a Progressive and has given up every value and shred of morality that has been handed down to us by God.
