Bernie Sanders is keeping voters in the dark on a vital subject that could decide the presidency.
Now that Sanders is the frontrunner in the Democrat Party race, he is facing new pressure to come clean.
Bernie Sanders buried a terrifying secret that voters deserve to know.
The Democrat field looks as if they escaped from a nursing home — three of the top candidates would be over 80 years old while they served in office. Mike Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders are 78 currently, and Joe Biden is just behind at 77.
There are health problems associated with being old that are problematic for a president.
Quite obviously, the chance of a death on the job is far higher than with a younger president.
But it’s not only that, cognitive abilities decrease with advanced age. Recent memories and speed of processing information are especially vulnerable.
Many elderly people slow down once they hit 80, and this isn’t a problem. They’ve worked hard and now they’ve got a chance to kick back and relax a bit.
But the President of America can’t slow down, it’s one of the toughest jobs on the face of the Earth.
Bernie Sanders experienced a heart attack on October 1, 2019, after the rigorous campaign trail was too much for him.
And he hasn’t even released the information that would let voters know how bad the damage to his heart is even though the Vermont Senator had previously promised to release the information.
According to Breitbart News:
Dr. Richard Kovacs, president of the American College of Cardiology, said Sanders has not released metrics on the left ventricular ejection fraction, which measures the blood volume that the heart pushes out with each heartbeat. This indicator tracks the likelihood of future heart events and patients’ mortality rate.
“Normally the heart will push out 60 percent,” he told NBC News. “If you go down to 40 or 50 percent, we regard that as mild impairment of the left ventricle. Thirty to 40 percent would be moderate. If you get to 30 percent, that would be severe.”
Despite Kovacs’ comments, Sanders has refused to provide additional information about his health after releasing what the senator claimed was a “comprehensive” medical records report.
“I think we have released a detailed medical report, and I’m comfortable on what we have done,” the 78-year-old said during a CNN town hall event last Tuesday evening.
His campaign is willing to swear that he’s up to the job and he released three doctors’ letters saying that they think he’s fit for office.
“I think any of you who follow him on the campaign trail know that he can handle the rigors of that probably better than many of us standing here,” Jeff Weaver, a top adviser told the press.
The problem is that the rigors of the campaign trail caused Bernie Sanders to have a heart attack that made many people discount his candidacy.
Why would the Democrats choose a radical socialist, who’s 78 and recently had a heart attack, to be their candidate?
There are far better choices out there if the Democrats weren’t so self-destructive.
