New York State Universal Health Care Bill Unlikely To Gain Support Needed Now, But Could In Future

State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. and Senator Kennth P. LaValle. PRESS FILE PRESS FILE
Jun 12, 2017 5:24 PM

Proposed legislation to create a universal single-payer plan to provide health coverage to every New York State resident likely will not become law anytime soon in Albany—and the issue puts the South Fork’s two state legislators in a rare position, on opposite sides of an issue.

The State Assembly approved the measure in mid-May. It calls for publicly funded universal health care for all state residents, regardless of wealth, income, age, immigration status or preexisting condition.

According to a press release from Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr., who co-sponsored the bill and voted in favor of it, the legislation would give everyone access to comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care, primary and preventive care, maternity care, prescription drug costs, laboratory testing, rehabilitative care, and even dental, vision and hearing care, as well as provide out-of-state coverage.

Versions of this bill have been approved in the Assembly both in 2015 and 2016—but the bill never has won the approval of the State Senate. It’s not likely to be approved this time either, both Mr. Thiele and State Senator Kenneth LaValle said. In fact, the two agreed that it’s unlikely to even get to the Senate floor for a vote.

Opponents of the bill have cited major potential tax increases as a concern, although a campaign website in favor of the bill, nyhealthact.com, claims that 98 percent of all New Yorkers would save money through the single-payer health coverage compared to the costs of existing health insurance policies through employers or the federal Health Insurance Marketplace.

Mr. LaValle acknowledged that he expects the state to eventually establish a single-payer system, sometime within the next five to 10 years.

But for now, he said, he wants more information on the fiscal impact of the bill before he would consider supporting the idea of universal health care at the state level.

“I think first we need to see what happens in Washington, with the heath care act, to see how that affects New York State,” the senator said in a phone interview on Monday. “I have been asking people: What is the cost of single-payer? Is it something that we would have to increase taxes in New York to pay for? I have yet to get a direct answer.”

He added, “The cost of that is very important to me, and I think important to the people that I represent.”

Mr. Thiele agreed that it was unlikely that the bill would be voted on this year, let alone pass, but said it was important to introduce the measure again, if only to keep the idea in the minds of New Yorkers.

“Politics being what it is, I think in the current political climate, the chances of a Republican majority leadership [in the State Senate] allowing this to come up for a vote is limited. It’s probably a long shot,” Mr. Thiele said. “Even if it doesn’t pass, an important accomplishment is letting people know about this bill—that there is an alternative to what’s happening in Washington.”

Although the State Senate now has a 32-member Democratic Party majority in the 63-seat chamber after a special election in May, an alliance between several Democratic senators and the GOP still gives Republicans control over the Senate.

Mr. Thiele challenged Mr. LaValle’s concerns over the price tag of the bill. He argued that taxpayers would actually be saving money from the elimination of insurance premiums, which would balance out any tax increase.

Commenting on his disagreement with Mr. LaValle on the issue, Mr. Thiele noted that although the pair work well together, they don’t always see eye to eye on every piece of legislation.

“If two people agree 100 percent of the time, it probably means one of us isn't thinking,” Mr. Thiele said with a laugh.

The state’s proposed health care act comes as the House Of Representatives voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as “Obamacare,” hoping to replace it with the Republican-backed American Health Care Act, although the bill still needs support from the U.S. Senate.

So full coverage for illegal aliens at taxpayer expense.

Fly in, or sneak in across the border and you'll receive any type of health care at no charge, presumably including gender reassignment surgery.

I invite my friends on the left to justify this. It's time to stand up for what you really believe. Is it our responsibility to pay for the health care of anyone physically present in New York "regardless of immigration status"?

Nope, you're right, it doesn't say they'll cover illegal aliens, just people "**regardless of** wealth, income, age, ****immigration status**** or preexisting condition.

Yes if we don't have a legal residency requirement this is not fiscally responsible. Not only from other countries, but States that have bad healthcare policy. 2 years residency requirement, then provide every New Yorker with the same healthcare that teachers, police, town administration, firefighters, and state legislators receive. If necessary to kickstart that, let everyone buy into those plans at cost.

And for all your bold assertions, will you, unlike Mr. Z, have the courage to directly address whether you support the Democrats proposal to extend their plan to cover illegal aliens? It's a very simple question, why not stand proudly behind your belief that illegals are entitled to this benefit, if that is the case?
By MoronEliminator (83), Montauk on Jun 14, 17 2:54 PM
I think that the government has no business being involved in the health insurance marketplace. Let the free market work without interference and premiums would go down due to true competition. Doubtful that this will happen as many Americans get theirs for free or at greatly subsidized rates. Try paying your own way for a year or two JuneZ, you will be singing a different tune.

Single Payer is what all liberals want, another welfare program. Health care is not a right under the constitution. Health care is a privilege. Taxpayers should note be forced to subsidize or pay for any one but their own insurance. The answer is to offer many levels of health insurance, the more coverage the higher the premiums. Just like any other commodity, you can choose what you can pay for. Only legal immigrants should be offered healthcare. Maybe if we stopped offering all the benefits ...more

When you make the government the center of all, and we become merely property of it, then corruption the like would make Madoff blush would inevitably follow. As Reagan one said on how to spot a communist, "Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin."

Through alternate media like Breitbart, we have been given a voice that has a profound impact on corruption. Through the power of our Constitution we have taken over the reins and we're now steering our republic in a new direction. The elite globalists and their state-run press in New York and California are in panic mode; however, their shrieking temper tantrums are irrelevant - we now control our own destinies.

The system is working perfectly. Fairness wasn't created by God and exists nowhere in nature.

You people cannot redefine what anti-capitalism means.

You're upset about fairness and the fact that some people have more than others.

That's not capitalism. That's life and envy is one of the seven deadly sins.

For all the flaws of the USSR, socialism took Russia from a poor, semi-feudal Tsarist backwater to an industrialized superpower with massively improved quality of life, and one of the fastest growing economies of the century, and which did the lion's share of the fighting against a Nazi empire which spanned nearly all of Europe, kicked ass in the space race, ended periodic famine, and dominated the foreign policy attention of the United States.

You do realize that Marxism-Leninism was the brainchild of Stalin, right?

The only real thing it has to do with Marx is that his name was put on it. For reference, the proletarii were part of ancient Roman Republic.
