Weiner: City Workers Should Pay 10% Of Their Salaries For Health Care Costs

From the Daily News:

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.

For teachers, that would mean no raises for the last five years, a loss of the 8% pattern that every other union got, plus a loss of 10% of their salary for health care - 25% for smokers.

No word of whether prostate exams will be conducted via Twitter in the Weiner plan.
