Healthcare guaranteed for all New Yorkers, says Bill de Blasio

Healthcare guaranteed for all New Yorkers, says Bill de Blasio

Mr de Blasio, who has sought to build a national profile during his five years in office, said that the city was now capable of providing healthcare for New Yorkers regardless of their income or immigration status.

Once up and running, the office will review city data and tenant complaints in order to determine which landlords need more oversight.

The announcement came the day after de Blasio announced a plan to spend $100 million a year on expanding health coverage for low-income New Yorkers and seemed meant to polish his credentials as a progressive leader. "There's plenty of money in this city", de Blasio said.

"A few of the mayor's goals will have to come from Albany, he said, but he promised officials will work in the capital for speedy trials and bail reforms, prevent rent regulation for 1 million New York City apartments from expiring, push for the state budget to address the MTA subway and buses and with with the state to legalize marijuana" in the right way, by expunging arrest records and making sure the grassroots, not the big corporations, run this new business".

The mayor has used the real estate industry as a foil throughout his career, inaugurating a yearly "worst landlords list" during his tenure as the city's public advocate. If implemented, New York City would be the first jurisdiction in the country to mandate paid personal time for employees.

The mayor said, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, eight million New Yorkers now have health insurance, adding that the uninsured rate is about almost half of what it was in 2013.

The idea took inspiration from San Francisco's version of universal health care, Healthy San Francisco, enacted in 2007. All services will be available on a sliding scale and will cover roughly the 600,000 city residents without insurance, roughly half of whom are undocumented immigrants. "In this city, we're going to make that a reality", he said Tuesday. The program would improve NYC's public health insurance option, MetroPlus, and also guarantee that anyone ineligible for insurance has direct access to NYC Health + Hospitals' physicians, pharmacies and mental health services.

The legislation would require employers with five or more employees to offer 10 paid days off that could be used for any goal. As the New York Post reported, the bill was introduced by Council Member Ben Kallos, who represents parts of Manhattan, but also now chairs the Council's Land Use Subcommittee on Planning Dispositions and Concessions, which has oversight over the sale or lease of city-owned land to developers.

The legislation would have to be passed by the City Council. "Well-connected developers should not be getting sweetheart deals on the taxpayers' dime".
