The former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg has yet to officially announce he is running for President in 2020, but he is making bold statements as if he is positioning himself for a run. Bloomberg lashed out against the Democrat party embracing Socialism and called the policies dangerous to the point to bankrupt the country.
Michael Bloomberg sounded off on the Green New Deal proposals by Democrats, calling them pie in the sky proposals. “I’m a little bit tired of listening to things that are pie in the sky that we never are going to pass, never going to afford. I think it’s just disingenuous to promote those things. You’ve got to do something that’s practical.”
Bloomberg announced that Democrats should stop proposing Medicare for all because it would bankrupt us for a long time. This comes after Kamala Harris announced she supported the idea on CNN town hall.
Bloomberg stated, “I think you could never afford that. You’re talking about trillions of dollars. I think you can have ‘Medicare for all’ for people that are uncovered, but to replace the entire private system where companies provide health care for their employees would bankrupt us for a very long time.”
Michael Bloomberg will likely announce he is running for President in 2020 for the Democrat party, but he will face the issue of being a rich old white man to win the election. For this reason is probably why Michael Bloomberg is taking a strong stance in opposing Socialism to get the centrist Democrat votes.
