THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. STRATEGICALLY SIGNIFICANT. A MAJOR ADVANCE FOR THE GOTTFRIED LEGISLATION:
March 31, 2017
This morning on WNYC, Brian Lehrer, during a live interview to which I was listening, asked Mayor DeBlasio if he supported the state single payer initiative since it was now just a few votes shy of sufficient Senate support in Albany. He answered with a full-throated, unequivocal endorsement, praised Dick Gottfried for his efforts, reminded listeners of Bernie Sanders advocacy of single payer, and endorsed it also because it is a positive strategy to counter the right, and not just a defensive tactic.
