Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg can't get away from past comments as another video has surfaced of him making insensitive remarks concerning elderly people receiving cancer treatment.

In 2011, while sitting Shiva with a Jewish family, the billionaire suggested elderly Americans with cancer should be denied treatment to save 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."

And this man wants to run the healthcare systems.
