Cynthia Nixon on How to Finance Single-Payer Healthcare
GOD DAMN I HOPE SHE WINS
she'll finish NY off in a year
The presumed next governor of California, Gavin Newsom, has proclaimed that he supports free medical care for everybody, even illegal aliens. In the past, single-payer healthcare has stalled even if far-left California (resulting in death threats from moonbats) because there would be no way to pay for it. But the possible next governor of New York, Cynthia Nixon, has an answer to that objection:
Nixon recently told the New York Daily News editorial board she did not yet have a plan to pay for single-payer.The proposed New York Health Act (NYHA), which would establish universal health care for everyone in the state, including undocumented immigrants, would require the state’s tax revenue to increase by about 156 percent by 2022, according to a study by the RAND Corp. …
“Pass it and then figure out how to fund it,” Nixon said.
Why even pretend to have a plan? Socialize everything first, deal with the Venezuela-style collapse later.
Odious current governor Andrew Cuomo has tried mightily not to let Nixon outflank him on the left, even going so far as to rave that he is an illegal alien and that America “was never great.” She isn’t making it easy.
Cuomo’s approach is to call for single-payer healthcare to be imposed at the federal level, as if that would somehow make it affordable. Voters may suspect he is just passing the buck to Washington, and is not a true commie like Cynthia Nixon.
