Healthcare guaranteed for all New Yorkers, says Bill de Blasio

Level off city spending now De Blasio should pay careful attention to the tax burden in this year's budget

But the mayor owes around $300,000 to attorneys to cover work they did on an investigation into de Blasio's political fund-raising for a failed effort to flip the State Senate in 2014.

His theme was Fairest Big City, and by fair, the mayor meant fair for the lower 99 percent.

Some took the announcements as a sign that de Blasio was preparing to announce his bid for the presidency. "It's just in the wrong hands".

Saying more than 500,000 full- and part-time employees in New York City now have no paid time off, de Blasio said he will pursue local legislation that would require private employers with five or more employees to offer 10 annual days of paid personal time, allowing employees to take paid time off for any goal, including vacation, religious observances, bereavement, and time with family. "It's the right thing to do", he declared.

Trump made reversing former president Barack Obama's health care law a key pledge of his campaign, and his Republican party successfully repealed in 2017 a key provision meant to keep overall costs down by ensuring healthy individuals bought insurance.

The potential flood of new patients would be coming into the purview of a health care system that's spent years operating under a chronic shortage of primary care providers - a long-running challenge City & State documented last October. The program, which is now in six districts, will be expanded to Washington Heights, the South Bronx, East New York, Staten Island, Bushwick and Soundview, serving 20,000 more children in the next school year.

"I don't think there's a passage in the Bible that says, deny health care to your neighbor because they're undocumented", he said. The city and the company continue to retort that the 25,000 or more jobs coming to the city will pay much more back in state and local tax revenues on balance.

The temporary home of the Los Angeles Rams , who are hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday. It would simply be too much wear and tear for one gridiron to handle.

He touched on increasing bus lanes and bus speeds by the end of 2020 along with adding a fast ferry line for Staten Island.

"There's plenty of money in this city", the mayor said during his hour-long speech. This office will spearhead the city's anti-harassment initiatives program and "root out the worst landlord abuse".

The mayor also proposed free vison tests and prescription eyeglasses to any kindergartner or first-grader who needs them.

The city will also pressure the MTA to restart the SBS Bus program, helping fulfill the de Blasio administration October 2017 commitment to add 20 SBS routes citywide. "It's what this nation was founded for". City Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn) has indicated that he will be the lead sponsor on the on the bill. "Here in New York City, we are one of the leading jurisdictions in creating the right to sick leave, which we then expanded a year ago to broaden the definition of family and to add safe leave for victims of domestic and sexual abuse".

In November, Democrats in the City Council have introduced 18 new bills that would restrict landlords' abilities to change tenancies and extract more rent from building residents.

Kevin Dugan, government affairs director for the New York State Restaurant Association, called the proposal "very concerning" to the restaurant industry. The Washington Post reported that "the promise is aimed at 600,000 New Yorkers who lack insurance because they can't afford it, believe they don't need it, or can't get it because they are in the country illegally". In Fall 2020, District 12 (Central Bronx) and District 29 (Cambria Heights, Hollis, Laurelton, Queens Village, Springfield Gardens, St. Albans) will get 3-K for All.
