NYC Care

Mayor Bill Deblasio is devoting $100 million to NYC Care, Universal Healthcare for everyone in New York City, including undocumented immigrants.





The United States is lagging behind every other developed country in healthcare. Americans as a whole have less healthcare and more expensive healthcare costs than any other developed country in the world. With 44 million Americans without health insurance and another 38 million with inadequate coverage, 20 percent of our country is exposed in times of . That's 20 percent of the country.  Even with health insurance, often they can't afford their prescriptions or copays on emergency procedures. Even receiving an organ transplant in this country is more dependent on your ability to pay than the urgency of your condition. This is inhumane.

The Republican Party has turned healthcare into a political leveraging point, when it's not. This is a human rights issue.  President Trump and Congressional Republicans have decreased funding for the ACA, and the number of insured Americans has decreased by millions since Trump came into office. We can no longer wait for Congress to do the right thing and protect Americans.


Mayor DeBlasio is building an example that mayors across the nation should follow. While congress continues to argue and shut down the government, every mayor in every major city should create a feasibility study immediately and figure out a way to provide healthcare for their residents - there is no choice about whether we can do it- it's a matter of when. Let's try it in Atlanta and Los Angeles. In Portland, and Denver.


Today, call, tweet, email your mayors and city councils and demand your city figure out a way to provide healthcare. There is always a way.


Let's prove that Universal Healthcare is possible.
