Health care should be a human right, not a privilege for those who can afford it.
Over one million New Yorkers are currently uninsured and millions more are under-insured. That’s why I endorse the New York Health Act. The New York Health Act would create a single-payer, ‘Medicare For All’ system. It has passed the New York State Assembly four years in a row, but every time it’s been blocked by the Republican State Senate which is bolstered by rogue Trump Democrats known as the IDC.
Every single New Yorker can have good health care, with no copays and no deductibles. But first we have to start sending Democrats to Albany who stand with people, not corporations.
According to one analysis, the New York Health Act would reduce overall health care spending by 15 percent ($45 billion per year). Over 98% of New York households would spend less on health care than they spend now.
People like my mom shouldn’t have to depend on our employers for insurance – and no one should have to worry about the cost of care when they’re worried about their health. Agree? Let us know why:
