Biaggi makes single-payer case during seniors visit

Originally published in Riverdale Press on February 17, 2019.

One of Alessandra Biaggi’s main issues she championed on the campaign trail to win the state senate seat she now holds was passage of what could become the country’s first single-payer health care system, the New York Health Act.

Now, the senator is making good on her promise with plans to push the health care bill through her chamber where it stalled many times before. But first, Biaggi took some time last week to stop by RSS-Riverdale Senior Services to hear what baby boomers and the Silent Generation had to say about what would likely be the biggest reinvention of health care in the state’s history.
