A Healthy Plan for New York

With the commitment to reduce the number of hospital beds in the state, Eliot Spitzer signaled he was going to expand another area of health care.

“We will introduce a budget that, in the very first year, guarantees access to health insurance for all of New York’s 500,000 uninsured children. And within four years, we will further cut the number of uninsured. Using a new streamlined enrollment process that guards against fraud, we will enroll the 900,000 uninsured Medicaid-eligible adults.”

So, it sounds like health care workers won’t be at a total loss under a Spitzer administration, since all those new patience are going to need nurses and hospital workers to help them along.
