Anthony Weiner rolled out an ambitious health care plan Thursday, asking city workers to contribute to their health care costs and proposing that the city act as a “single-payer laboratory” to bring down costs.
Weiner wants city workers to pay 10% of their salaries for health care — 25% if they smoke — and he’s proposing for the city to directly pay employee medical expenses rather than pay through an insurance company as a first step toward “single-payer” health care funded by the government.
