NY Governor Candidate Cynthia Nixon unveiled her detailed strategy for providing a ‘Medicare for All’ system to all New Yorkers this week; saying legislators should pass a universal healthcare bill and “figure out” funding later.
Nixon was speaking with the Daily News Editorial Board Wednesday when she was pressed over a host of issues; including the state’s healthcare system and bloated budget.
“Nixon also pushed her plan for a state universal health care program that estimates suggest could cost initially anywhere from $96 billion to $200 billion. The state budget currently is $170 billion,” writes the Daily News. “Nixon said she does not have a plan to pay for it”
“Pass it and then figure out how to fund it,” she said.
Nixon’s comments come just days after her heated debate with sitting Governor Andrew Cuomo; where the two sparred-off over immigration, ICE, and New York’s escalating housing crisis.

NIXON'S NY: Cynthia TRASHES TRUMP, Wants Driver’s Licenses for All Illegal Immigrants
New York Democratic candidate for Governor Cynthia Nixon viciously attacked President Trump this week; bizarrely slamming the Commander-in-Chief for “not expanding” driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.
Nixon posted the left-field attack on social media Wednesday evening; calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to “oppose” the Trump administration by issuing driver’s licenses to New York’s “undocumented workers.”
“We need to oppose Trump not just with rhetoric, but with policy. Why, for example, have you not expanded access to driver’s licenses to undocumented workers?” she tweeted.

The candidate’s comments come as Governor Cuomo came under-fire from both sides of the political aisle after he viciously referred to ICE agents as a “bunch of thugs” during their heated debate.
CYNTHIA'S STRATEGY? Nixon Says ‘HIGHER TAXES’ Make NY More ‘BUSINESS FRIENDLY’
Democratic challenger for Governor of New York Cynthia Nixon dodged questions surrounding her massive tax scheme Thursday; claiming the state’s high taxes actually makes the region more “business friendly.”
Nixon was speaking with MSNBC when she was asked if New York’s wealthy residents and their businesses would leave should she implement her “millionaire’s tax.”
“If you were successful in imposing a millionaire’s tax or corporate tax, what makes you think those companies and those wealthy people would stay in New York?” asked MSNBC’s Rick Tyler.
“I think that wealthy individuals have the liberty of choosing where they want to live. If high taxes were a thing that would make wealthy people move, we wouldn’t have so many wealthy people in New York,” said Nixon.
“If we want to create jobs for New Yorkers, investing in infrastructure is the most effective way to do it, and it’s a way to prepare our state for the future and make it more business friendly,” she concluded.
