De Blasio says every resident in NYC will be guaranteed health care

  • New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio launched a campaign against discrimination and harassment

A day earlier, California Gov. Gavin Newsom proposed state-funded health care coverage for 138,000 young people living in the country illegally and reinstating a mandate for everyone to buy insurance or pay a fine - part of "Obamacare" at congressional Republicans eliminated past year.

On Twitter, the Mayor wrote there would be an expansion to the public option and a new program called NYC Care. "This is huge step in the right direction and it clears a path toward statewide single-payer".

The efforts in liberal strongholds target President Donald Trump's push to roll back his predecessor's signature law and are moves toward universal health care as championed by some Democrats.

The city will spend $100 million on the program, The New York Times reported.

And now de Blasio plans to further embrace illegal immigrants by providing them with free health care on the taxpayers' dime. The city has spent lots of money trying to convince poor, often dysfunctional people to develop regular medical habits by signing up for Medicaid and getting a primary-care doctor.

"You name it. The things that people need will be available to them", he added. "We have now, in New York City, something that we can build on".

"From this moment on in New York City everyone is guaranteed the right to health care", de Blasio said.

The plan will allow residents to see a primary care doctor for their healthcare issues, rather than relying on emergency rooms, said the mayor. "But our people need healthcare right now".

"Health care is a human right".

The prospects for a state-wide universal health care proposal in NY improved last fall when Democrats took control of the entire Legislature by winning a Senate majority. We want people to have primary care, specialty care.

Health care has become a major political issue in the United States, with Republicans lifting restrictions that have made many policies under a national system known as Obamacare unaffordable and prominent Democrats advocating a government-run national health system to replace Obamacare. This plan will give all of that directly to the people who don't have it in the city'.

The Economic Opportunity Institute said more than 43,000 people dropped their health insurance past year in Washington.

De Blasio's announcement came after California's new Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom outlined a similarly ambitious health care agenda for his state, aimed at offering more benefits to illegal immigrants and protecting the embattled Affordable Care Act. "We are doing just the opposite".

City officials couldn't detail their plans for engaging the 600,000 uninsured.

"If we don't help people get the health care, we're going to pay plenty on the back end when people get really sick". We're going the opposite direction.

The program, NYC Care, will launch this summer in the Bronx.
