New York City mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday announced his $100 million health care program to provide coverage and access to care to the 600,000 New Yorkers now without it, including undocumented and indigent residents.
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.
He also said that no new taxes would be issued to pay for the plan, noting that "we're going to pay for" this "through our public health care system because we're making it a priority". Mayor de Blasio should look out for the legal residents of the city who are footing the bill before extending more expensive taxpayer funded benefits to illegal aliens.

"You know the national reality, the Republicans in Washington are trying to tear down healthcare, trying to tear down the universality of health care coverage, get rid of Obamacare". "I refuse the notion that these folks don't deserve health care", the mayor said of undocumented immigrants. But, aides said, it was something the city could do immediately and on its own, and not require approval from the State Legislature, which is weighing some form of universal health insurance for New York State. "The Mayor must stop abusing the middle class and treating us like his personal ATM", Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis said (R-Staten Island).

In a nod to creating a state-based single-payer system, the Democratic governor sent a letter to President Donald Trump and congressional leadership on Monday requesting that the federal government "empower States like mine to design and implement truly transformative solutions for securing affordable health care for all".
