Good Health News for Empire Staters

The assembly in our fair (it's all those things) state has voted to one-up Obamacare.

The New York Assembly wants to cut out the middle man.

A bill that passed 89-47 would essentially eliminate insurance companies and cover all New Yorkers' healthcare needs through a so-called single payer system.

Our Senate, unfortunately, is not so fair. 

An identical bill hasn't advanced in the state Senate, so the measure is not likely become law any time soon.

And just to stick another shiv in the idea that there is no difference between Dems and Reps.

The vote fell roughly along party lines.

Oooh, look, 81 sponsors. All Democrats
