The Kingston Common Council's recent endorsement of the New York Health Act is a well-needed bright spot in our darkening horizon. This act — passed four years in a row by our state Assembly — and shot down, as many times, by the Republicans in our state Senate — would guarantee health care for every New Yorker, regardless of income.
There would be no pre-existing conditions, no co-pays, and no deductibles.
And, remarkably, as attested by the Rand Corporation, the total health care expenditure would be less. More healthcare for less money — who doesn’t like the sound of that?
