Some politicians certainly won’t be happy about this!
In a recent interview with “Axios on HBO” Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), who also happens to be a physician, said that he strongly favors making all aging leaders take cognition tests to see if they are capable to doing to job.
Currently, all top leaders which include Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and McConnell, are all aged between 70 and 81.
According to Yahoo News, Cassidy further explained that after 80 years of age people begin to “rapidly decline.”
Cassidy then said, “It’s usually noticeable. So anybody in a position of responsibility who may potentially be on that slope, that is of concern. And I’m saying this as a doctor.”
Adding, “I’m told that there have been senators in the past who, at the end of their Senate terms were senile,” Cassidy explained. “I’m told that was true of senators of both parties.”
Cassidy then called on Supreme Court justices, members of Congress, and executive branch leaders to all submit to annual mental health evaluations.
