Conservative radio host Mark Levin claimed that Democrats "use" senior citizens as they do racial minorities on the Tuesday episode of "The Mark Levin Show."

"No Democrats in Congress or Biden -- they don’t want independent investigations on all the deaths that occurred in nursing homes as a result of [Gov. Andrew] Cuomo," Levin said.

The commentator slammed Medicare pushed by Democrats saying, “the Democrats hate senior citizens; they use senior citizens, like they use minorities. They want you scared to death somebody is going to take away your Medicare. The only one that took away your Medicare was Obama with Obamacare and Biden."

"Then they’re going to lower the age from 65 to 60. Now try and get into a doctor’s office, now try to get your Medicare bills paid. When the trustees say it’s going bankrupt in four years, Biden has an idea because Bernie the Red, he wants to lower the age, so everybody’s on Medicare. He'll lower it to 60, then 55, then 50, then you’ll have nothing. You’ll have free health care, but no medicine."

Below is a full transcript of the segment.

Levin: Here is Cuomo. Sorry to depress everybody -- Mario Cuomo -- no, I mean, well, they’re all the same, Andrew Cuomo, in an interview yesterday. Don’t you think we need an independent investigation? And by the way, again, no Democrats in Congress or Biden -- they don’t want independent investigations on all the deaths that occurred in nursing homes as a result of Cuomo. "Hey, you know what?" What is it, Dr. Fauci? "New York was the best area. Yeah, Lockdown, wearing masks, you know, they're doing -- they're pushing the COVID-positive patients into nursing homes. We got to -- you’ve heard about herd immunity -- we’re thinning out the herd. That’s what we’re doing. And I’m the Fauc, don’t question me." Cut eleven, go. 

Cuomo: No, I wouldn’t do an investigation as to whether or not it’s political; everybody can make that decision for themselves. I think you’d have to be blind to realize it’s not political. Just look at where it comes from and look at the sources and look at their political affiliation and look at who wrote the letter in Congress. And look at what publications --"

Levin: And look at the Associated Press and look at the memo you put out on March 25th. And look at all the deaths on your hands. And look at how you’re using the numbers in order to cover up, you stupid moron. You’re a disgrace. I was on to you, what was it March 25th, March 26th when we had that magnificent caller. I was ringing the alarms all over the d*mn place about what you were doing to senior citizens, senior citizens. The Democrats hate senior citizens; they use senior citizens, like they use minorities. They want you scared to death somebody is going to take away your Medicare. The only one that took away your Medicare was Obama with Obamacare and Biden. Then they’re going to lower the age from 65 to 60. Now try and get into a doctor’s office, now try to get your Medicare bills paid. When the trustees say it’s going bankrupt in four years, Biden has an idea because Bernie the Red, he wants to lower the age, so everybody’s on Medicare. He'll lower it to 60, then 55, then 50, then you’ll have nothing. You’ll have free health care, but no medicine. They hate senior citizens. Look what they did in New York. Look what they did in New Jersey, Illinois. Look what they’ve done to the most vulnerable among us. They hate senior citizens. They use senior citizens.
