I'm sure those who can afford to do so will ... leaving the rest of us middle class folks to foot the bill.


It's a wonder you all can pay rent as it is.

Have you seen some of the apartments New Yorkers live in? Some of them are barely big enough to lie down in. The place in Two Broke Girls would be considered a luxury apartment, way out of their price range.

Well everyone that is a resident of NY better hurry up and change residency to another state before you get taxed into poverty.


Another article talking about how the increase of minimum wage to $15/hr is causing some smaller businesses in NYC to scale back hiring or automate.

New York City Business Grapple with Increased Minimum Wage


McDonalds has recently installed kiosks where you can order food without going to a human cashier. It's not hard to figure out why.

It's beyond me, I've looked up job listings in my career just to see how much more they pay there, and it isn't enough to justify it.

I have one roommate and we have a 3 story house with a two car garage and a big yard in a decent sized city......

I pay 500 a month before utilities.

I don't have a dog in this fight being a Brit, but I'd just like to say I'd wish my tax funded healthcare for everyone in the world. 500 million EU nationals have similar, it is only the US as a developed nation which doesn't offer such a system.

I've had lots of treatment this year, got some therapy at the hospital next week and an MRI brain scan the week after. I'm self employed so I've missed loads of work over the last 12 months, but if I'd had to find money for healthcare that would have ruined me. I go to the hospital knowing it won't cost me a penny at the point of need...I wish that for everyone in the world, call it socialist, but the crazy thing is it is one of the few things that unites British people left/right, we all support tax funded healthcare.

It is the sign of a civilised society in my opinion.

It is not free. Somebody is paying for it AND somebody is getting $$$$$ from it. Follow the money.

"The City will double down on efforts to boost enrollment in MetroPlus, the City's public option."



The City's MetroPlus Health Plan provides Medicaid, Family Health Plus and Child Health Plus managed healthcare services to people in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. MetroPlus, a prepaid health services plan, offers Medicaid Managed Care, Child Health Plus, Family Health Plus and an HIV Special Needs Plan (SNP).

The Plan also offers three Medicare products: MetroPlus Medicare Advantage, for those who are eligible for Medicare and receive full or partial Medicaid benefits, MetroPlus Medicare Advantage Select, for those eligible for Medicare and for full Medicaid benefits, and MetroPlus Medicare Advantage Partnership in Care, for people with HIV/AIDS eligible for Medicare with or without Medicaid.

www1.nyc.gov...

The entire state will be paying for it and some of it will be paid for through Federal dollars.

Hopefully this is more successful than his free college for all residents plan. I read an article just yesterday that said 70% of the people that applied were rejected.

They make it increasingly difficult for people, especially high earners to leave New York.

They investigate and subpoena for financial records etc, and make the move so complicated that for some leaving is just too difficult.

Even if you leave they have 183 day rule, where even if you only come back for a minute it counts as one day.

They have to keep their tax slaves.

DeBlasio says 600,000 city residents need comprehensive healthcare.

I guarantee in less than a year, that number will explode to 2,000,000.

NYC residents will stop paying their $900 @ month premiums for crappy ObamaCare and hop on the DeBlasio gravy train.

Shortly thereafter, the train crashes, leaving lots of carnage in its aftermath.

Never heard of that before, but not really all that surprised.

Sigh,

I see what you are trying to do but please stop, you even did a thread asking how to get away with not paying taxes.

wonder how much in taxes will be sucked out of the rest of the state to pay for this.
ya, I know, it's gonna be a little self sufficient system within the city, sure.
try to convince the residents of the upstate communities of this, they already think the city is sucking the wealth out of their area. and, if the state gov't is like it was when I left, they will find new and exciting ways to funnel more money to the city.

NEW YORK - Mayor Bill de Blasio is announcing Tuesday that the city is rolling out a program to provide health care to all New York City residents, including undocumented immigrants.


So if I drive down to NYC and refuse to provide ID, claiming to be undocumented from Canada, I can get "free" "sliding scale not quite free" health services?

The $1200 I paid to be told to walk it off six years ago on this still-bum ankle could probably benefit from of that 'free' healthcare. I guess if I'm undocumented I can just give a fake name anyway- wouldn't even get the eventual bill!

Don't 'ya know....New York is only NYC. That's the way they act. If you live in the rest of the state, you might want to demand your State rep look into how much is going to come out of YOUR pocket for this.....unless, of course, your rep is also getting kickbacks.

Amen to that, cousin! Cured of prostate cancer for $32 out of pocket. Dare to demand better, America!

I had a (very) tiny 1 BR apt. on E.25th. street between 2nd. & 3rd. ave in Manhattan about 30 years ago.
Back then, I paid $1300 per month.

I can only imagine what it is going for now.

Out of YOUR pocket, the rest came out of everyone's taxes. There's no free ride. If you like your healthcare, thank a rich person, they're subsidizing it.

Cool story man

I genuinely wish it for the world, not just America, heck even Ghana in Africa provides tax funded healthcare.
I have a loved US friend and she pays a fortune for her family, never mind the deductables/money that she has to pay before the insurance kicks in.

I can't imagine a world like that, and both left/right agree about it here, one of the few things the whole nation agrees about...tax funded healthcare.
