De Blasio rolls out universal health care plan for all NYC residents, including illegal immigrants

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a universal health care plan on Tuesday, promising affordable medical coverage to all residents, regardless of citizenship status. But details were scant on how the program will be funded.

What are the details?

The $100 million plan, dubbed “NYC Care,” is designed to provide health insurance for the 600,000 New Yorkers who have either opted out of purchasing insurance, cannot afford the premiums available on the state’s health-care exchange, or are ineligible for coverage because they are not citizens of the United States.

“We’re going to guarantee health care for New Yorkers who need it,” de Blasio told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “We have now, in New York City, something that we can build on. We have a public option, that we’re ready to make much bigger — a public health insurance option that can reach the hundreds of thousands that are, right now, not in any kind of health insurance.”

“We also have a way to provide direct health care to a lot of our neighbors, who happen to be undocumented,” the mayor continued. “They’re still a part of our community, they need health care, their families need health care. We recognize that obviously health care isn’t just, in theory, a right; it’s in practice a right.”

De Blasio added, “Republicans in Washington are trying to tear down health care. We are doing just the opposite.”

  1. Well, we already knew he was a socialist and socialists believe in enslavement of all to ruling elites and administrators.

    “With regard to the idea whether or not you have a right to health care you have to realize what that implies. I am a physician. You have a right to come to my house and conscript me. It means you believe in slavery. You are going to enslave not only me but the janitor at my hospital, the person who cleans my office, the assistants, the nurses. … You are basically saying you believe in slavery,” said Rand Paul
