De Blasio announces health care coverage for all New Yorkers

Not only will NY be a sanctuary city, Mayor de Blasio will now seek $100 million in new spending to provide full comprehensive healthcare for all, including its undocumented immigrants.

The city plans to begin improving MetroPlus now, and to expand access for ineligible New Yorkers starting this summer.

"More than 500,000 hard-working men and women should earn paid personal time when they contribute to the success of their companies", de Blasio said in an email.

Trump made reversing former president Barack Obama's health care law a key pledge of his campaign, and his Republican party successfully repealed in 2017 a key provision meant to keep overall costs down by ensuring healthy individuals bought insurance.

"The Trump administration has done everything in its power to undermine the health care coverage advances we've made in Washington", Frockt said in a statement. According to de Blasio the message will be, "Go get the health care you need when you need it. Today we celebrate our city's relentless commitment to accessible, high-quality healthcare", Palacio continued.

As to why undocumented residents were included in the program, "I'm here to tell you everyone needs coverage, everyone needs a place to turn", said de Blasio.

However, the protectors of illegal immigrants are perfectly happy to risk the lives of families of New York City citizens and legal immigrants by handcuffing the ability of the police to help federal law enforcement agents remove illegal aliens with existing criminal records from our city and country.

'We also have a way to provide direct health care to a lot of our neighbors who are undocumented, they're still part of our community and they need health care'.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is proposing a plan that would require companies to offer their workers 10 days of vacation time off each year.

The Democratic leaders of California and New York City are taking steps to provide health care coverage to some undocumented residents.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio speaks during a news conference at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx borough of New York City.

De Blasio explained a day earlier that the plan, referred to as "NYC Care", will reach almost 600,000 New Yorkers and cost taxpayers at least $100 million. And because more people will get preventive care, the city might actually save money, he added. "It is the worst way to get health care".

NYC Care will not be fully implemented until 2021.

Otherwise, the city's estimate averages out to $160 per person in medical costs per year.

City officials plan to reach out to low-income New Yorkers who qualify. From this moment on in New York City, everyone is guaranteed the right to health care-everyone.

Correct. NYC already has a public option.
