I Support the New York Health Act

Through my own first-hand experience, I recognize the importance of universal healthcare for all citizens and I know the suffering that families can endure when adequate health care is out of reach. This summer, the New York State Assembly passed a comprehensive health care reform bill known as the New York Health Act.

My opponent, Anthony Palumbo, voted against the New York Health Act. Who is he working for? Is he working for the people of New York or is he working for the big insurance companies and their CEOs?

According to a recent analysis, 98% of New Yorkers would spend less for health coverage and health care under New York Health than they do today. New York would save over $70 billion by eliminating health insurance company administration and profit; reducing health care provider and employer administrative costs; and capturing savings from negotiating prices of pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Even after expanding coverage to all New Yorkers; eliminating deductibles, co-pays, and out-of-network charges; and increasing low Medicaid reimbursements, New York Health would generate net savings of $45 billion.

This is a no-brainer, Assembly Distinct 2 needs someone who is going to work in the best interest of the people, not against them.
