Now he says the city will take steps to improve the health and welfare of each New Yorker, including expanded healthcare and a paid leave proposal announced earlier this week.

Universal healthcare has become a rallying cry for liberal Democrats and an article of faith for numerous new representatives in Congress. Officials claimed that New York's scheme would be the most comprehensive free healthcare system in America.

Mayor de Blasio did note that he is aware that policy changes in New York City can have a huge impact on the rest of the nation and said he will definitely "go all around the country" and added "it will start soon". "For too many New Yorkers, they live in..." However, about 600,000 New Yorkers remain without insurance because they do not or cannot enroll, according to City Hall.

The mayor laid out his agenda after introducing several new initiatives, including a $100 million universal health care plan.

"Health care is a right, not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it". All services will be available on a sliding scale and will cover roughly the 600,000 city residents without insurance, roughly half of whom are undocumented immigrants.

If de Blasio's proposal is approved by the City Council, New York City would become the first and only American city to require paid vacation. "Every New Yorker, no matter their race or gender, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status should have accessible and reliable health care", state Sen.

The Democratic mayor said Wednesday he will back legislation requiring employers with five or more employees to offer at least 10 paid days off a year. "To be the fairest big city in America, New Yorkers can't be forced to choose between bringing home a paycheck and taking time off to just disconnect or spend time with loved ones - that choice ends with paid personal time". Part-time workers would fall under a mandate allowing them to accrue paid time off at a guaranteed minimum rate.

A new report published by USA Today Wednesday reveals almost "half" of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio's new healthcare program would go towards treating "undocumented immigrants" living throughout the Big Apple. Additionally, Metro Plus will announce a series of enhancements throughout the year.

De Blasio also pledged to expand pre-K for 3-year-olds to 20,000 by 2019 instead of 19,000 by 2021, while also extending a program that gives free vision checks and glasses to 5- and 6-year-old schoolchildren.
