Yet another legislative session is coming to a close in Albany. The idea of a single payer health care system was much discussed this session, and will likely continue as a health care topic when the legislature reconvenes in 2020. When the debate resumes, let’s hope everyone takes a moment to examine the Realities of Single Payer, as outlined in this informational video.
Everyone deserves access to high quality health care. But a single payer system? That’s bad for New Yorkers.
The New York Health Act would wipe out our current system and replace it with a government-run, one-size-fits-all approach to care. Meaning, politicians and government bureaucrats decide what’s covered, and what’s not!

Taylor Swift is an American singer-songwriter, and undoubtedly, one of the most popular artists of the decade. She’s won 10 Grammys, a record 23 Billboard Music Awards, and is one of the best-selling musicians in history. More than just a pop sensation who came along with the right look at the right time, her talents have landed her in the Songwriters Hall of Fame and on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 Greatest Songwriters. Oh, and she’s a decorated philanthropist who routinely donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to worthwhile causes.
Yet, despite all of the accolades and good deeds, Swift can’t escape her “Reputation” for boyfriend hopping or getting mired in “Bad Blood” with music icons like Kanye West and Katy Perry.
When it comes to negative press overshadowing good intentions, health plans can relate.
