SCARY: NY Dem On Socialist Healthcare: ‘Pass It And Then Figure Out How To Fund It’

New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon put on her best Nancy Pelosi impression when she recently told a New York editorial board that she wants her state to go ahead and pass a universal health care plan before they have a plan to fund it.

In anything – a business, a government, a household budget – this idea is a bad one.

From Fox News:

In her quest to become New York’s next governor, Cynthia Nixon has advocated for a single-payer health care system in the state – something studies have shown would be a costly endeavor.

The proposed New York Health Act (NYHA), which would establish universal health care for everyone in the state, including undocumented immigrants, would require the state’s tax revenue to increase by about 156 percent by 2022, according to a study by the RAND Corp. But it also found state spending on total health care under NYHA would be slightly lower – about 3 percent – by 2031 than under the current system.

Nixon’s solution? “Pass it and then figure out how to fund it,” she said according to the report.


The scary proposal comes amid Nixon’s attempt to beat Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Democrat primary election next week.

The issue has been one which has divided the Democrats as Cuomo has repeatedly said the national government should be responsible for the passage of a universal healthcare plan.

During their most recent gubernatorial debate, Cuomo said the implementation of the socialist healthcare idea would cost more than the entire state’s annual budget.

It’s no wonder Nixon wants the healthcare plan passed before they find funding for it because they probably never would.

Nixon, in return, argued the health care plan would save New Yorkers money.

From Fox News:

There is widespread disagreement over how much it would cost to implement a single-payer health care system. Supporters say it would cut excessive administrative costs compared to those incurred by private insurers. But critics, including most Republicans, warn the savings would be less dramatic than expected – and the system would cost too much.

Joe White, president of the Council for Affordable Health Coverage, has estimated that with single-payer “costs and taxes will rise, or patient access will be severely diminished – turning America’s medical system into a third-world product.”

The Medicare-for-all bill proposed earlier this year by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was estimated to cost $32.6 trillion over 10 years by a Mercatus Center at George Mason University study.

Nixon’s and Sanders’ single-payer health care plan pushes for the government to be the sole spender of health care costs. That is, the government would be the single-payer and would be responsible for covering medical costs.

Dr. Adam Gaffney, an instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, said: “The basic idea of single-payer is to cover everybody with a single government program, and that program would basically cover all the doctors and hospitals.”
