100 thoughts on “NYC mayor warns hospitals will go broke without support

  1. Dr. Fauci is on his way out. I see the writing on the wall !
    The economy or the good doctor hmmm.
    Your fired doc you got to go ! I got to get re-elected !

  2. This country was able to retool industries for WWII, and citizens willfully submitted to rationing for the cause of defeating fascism…
    AND WE WON!

    Can this present generation set aside its differences to accomplish that which will benefit all…right…left…middle… everyone!

  3. Trump gets kick backs from the hospitals as does thier ceo.
    Yet no one wants universal health Care. Ppl don't get it big pharma and big health insurance Co. Need more money. So pay up idiots. Bernie Sanders for president. Get rid of this orange clown

  4. New York is not taking this seriously they refused to Quarantine and the Mayor needs to do more to acquire ventilator and Masks this is not the President job.

  5. Millions are going to go bankrupt because of Covid 19, except young folks. Why? Because unlike Trump and his businesses, only student loans can't be discharged in bankruptcy. This is absolute rigged system. Legalize student loan bankruptcy now!

  6. Haha the complaints on here are hilarious. Don't want massive fees and hospital bills? Try universal healthcare. It works and we have a working model in dozens of countries. Or say it's socialism while you get that stimulus package check and go and buy some tp. Cognitive dissonance is wild.

  7. NY hey Ny governor.. world supply of ventilators are low. GM supposedly trying to manufacture them as is Ford. You dropped the ball on getting those Yorkers prepared to the reality of the situation but quickly working now to point fingers and blame!! 🤪👈

  8. Hospital should go back to being nonprofits. The reason we get charged so much is because they are now a For profit enterprise. Same thing for insurance companies they should not be for profit but nonprofit instead. When you can’t regulate their greed something has to happen.

  9. Di Blasio did not care about you New Yorkers during his failed election bid and not about you during the Cofona Virus outbreak. Wake up. Dems are only interested in their self interest.

  10. How would a Pay for Stay Hospital go broke, Oh I forgot they were interviewing Bill MORON Cop Hating DiBlasio

  11. I have seen what hospitals charge for and how much they charge… I doubt most will ever be at any serious risk of going broke.

  12. sounds dumb when you hear it, considering it's one of the largest, "wealthiest" cities in the world…classic!

  13. When the number of cases shot up from 943 to 1300 in one night that got my attention. The next day everyone saw the number jack to 2300. I think the subways and the close proximity has a lot to do with the spread. God bless.

  14. Can't believe I am actually happy to hear what is being said on Fox News. I am what the Right consider to be a dangerous liberal leftist, so obviously I have been shitting all over Fox News for a long time… THANK YOU for finally changing your tune somewhat!! You don't need to change all of your views and standards, but Public Health is far more important than Political Views! Conservatives and Liberals can go back to hating each other AFTER the threat has passed!!!

  15. when cities are so populated that apt buildings are built like hotels, it's time to rethink civil engineering

  16. If Doctors, suppliers and hospitals can't contribute and lower prices to save lives it will be a sad day. I used to pay 0.33 cents for a face mask last year, now they are $3.50+ each IF you can find them. Welcome to the new world. The more weak, sick and elderly people that countries let die, the better off businesses and countries will be.

  17. PEOPLE! MOVE OUT OF THESE MEGACITIES IF YOU CAN. 'SMALL TOWN USA' IS MUCH BETTER, HEALTHIER AND SAFER PLACE TO BE. YOU COULD BE LIVING NORMAL LIFE RIGHT NOW INSTEAD OF LIVING CRAMMED IN THESE BIG CITY CONCRETE CAGES JUST WAITING TO BE INFECTED OR MUGGED.

  18. PEOPLE! MOVE OUT OF THESE MEGACITIES IF YOU CAN. 'SMALL TOWN USA' IS MUCH BETTER, HEALTHIER AND SAFER PLACE TO BE. YOU COULD BE LIVING NORMAL LIFE RIGHT NOW INSTEAD OF CRAMMED IN THESE BIG CITY CONCRETE CAGES JUST WAITING TO BE INFECTED OR MUGGED.

  19. As someone who works in a Long Island NY hospital, this is a catastrophe. Please people, stay safe, stay at home, and unless you're in a medical emergency, do NOT come to the hospital. We're swimming in corona virus at the hospitals and our we're ill equipped to deal with it.

  20. Of ur# how many have already recovered n dude you don't even do widespread testing here so where are these new cases

  21. The reason why the interstate freeway system was built was to be able to move resources from hotspot to hotspot during times of crisis such as this…

  22. Why would they go broke? Don't they make money treating sick people lol. Mean while it's 10$ for a pill of tylenol.

  23. cost me $1000 for a poke of anesthetics and a lanced abscess couldve done it by myself if i had an anesthetic. five minutes in and out but ill be paying it off for at least a year

  24. Why would a President withhold vital medical equipment and make local government beg? What sense does that make? It's sadistic

  25. Neat now they can get a taste of what it feels like to be a patient of said hospitals, going broke without support.

  26. ""We are looking at a well orchestrated plan that they have been implementing for a long time to break this great country and put us all in martial law, "The New World"

  27. Business should be booming for the hospitals, I can't even listen to any of this absolute nonsense , dumb on. How can these people just lie to everyone like this.

  28. Too bad we dont have healthcare like the rest of the civilized world. Thank you deplorable Republicans for always trying to make a profit off my back.

  29. So lets see here, NY State regulated and licensed hospitals should be financed by the people of America? Raise tax's Mr. Mayor, your constituents can afford it!

  30. Wasn’t he on the daily show talking about how we shouldn’t be shutting down schools and events because of coronavirus like a week ago? Too bad he just realized that he can’t actually handle the consequences

  31. Whelp, the prez suggest we get back out there and mingle/shop, to spur the falling economy. That should bring hospitals more customers. And bailouts. Win-win??

  32. Why is this causing them to go broke? So far the 2020 flu has killed 23,000-59,000 Americans, according to CDC statistics. They also report upwards of 25M flu-related hospital visits. So how is Covid-19 breaking the system? There have also been estimates of roughly 12,000 suicides in the country this year. If the economy doesn’t get back up and running, and soon, that number could skyrocket.

  33. I'm no Socialist, but if we want a strong nation, healthcare and REAL (as in, useful) education should be free. We pay enough in taxes, and I'm wondering what we're getting in return.

  34. Millions are leaving NY everyday they got the hint two weeks ago. This is what happens when you run your city to the ground and want government hand outs.

  35. Thousands of dollars to visit the hospital and your telling me there growing broke? That is the most laughable thing I've ever heard. Yeah ok

  36. Hospitals will go broke… I guess politicians don't need hospitals either. SMFH, either Yellowstone needs to erupt or that meteor coming April need to change course crash into this planet 😠

  37. Stop putting this Trump hating partisan hack on your network. I like hearing him speak about as much as I like Donna Brazil.

  38. Why doesn't DeBlasio ask his wife what she did with the 1.2 billion dollars of taxpayer money that did NOT go to the mentally ill & the homeless?

  39. Meanwhile, the republicons are going to give trillions to large wealthy companies (with the help from the dems, as usual) and the working class poor are getting "vetted" by the (same as the republicons) democratic party. More socialism, welfare, and bailouts with no restrictions for the wealthy (same as 2008 under obama) and little to nothing for the working class. The fed has been dumping trillions into the fed and banks, starting back in September, when does the America citizen get help? Wake tf up America.

  40. Breaking news, for the 1st time since 1923, Opinions have surpassed Assholes by 73%. With statistics like these, we are all asking, how many opinions do assholes have
