On May 16th the New York State Assembly voted overwhelmingly for a single payer health care plan for our state. According to the website Spotlight News, the vote was 87 to 38. Ms. Woerner was one of a handful of Democrats in the Assembly to vote no.
Here is an excerpt from the article on the Spotlight News website about the Health Act that Woerner voted against:
The New York Health Act would establish a universal health care system within the state, known as New York Health, and expand coverage eligibility to include all residents, regardless of wealth, income, age or pre-existing condition. In addition, every enrollee would have access to the full range of doctors and service providers offered. The plan would provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care, primary and preventive care, maternity care, prescription drug costs, laboratory testing, rehabilitative care and dental, vision and hearing care.
