2. 3 years for the full effect to take hold. 4 years of denial.

3 years of political wrangling.

13. There wont be 3 years of political wrangling. Once they run out of money, it means

Everyone else can’t pay for the things that get them votes. It will be more like 3 weeks of wrangling.

On edit:

Actually, on second thought, it won’t even take that long. Once the people of NYC figure out that they can’t get into a hospital because the medical infrastructure is overwhelmed, elected officials will start losing their jobs. Whenever they implement it, it will be gone by the following election.

4. It is doomed to failure

The state will have to kick in billions at the expense of the rest of the state to NYC.

The wealthy and upper middle class will leave by the tens of thousands. This will then put the burden on the low middle class. The poor will be exempt.

So it all crashes into a pile of shit for not only NYC but the state as well.

If you have means then who in their right mind would stay if you are getting sucked dry?

The Iron Lady said it best. Socialism is great till you run out of other people's money.

New York and California are going to hit that wall at mach1 then wonder how it all collapsed?

11. I am transfering

Out of my home state of Michigan and going to Tennessee.

Michigan is a money grubbing state that leans left. I have no desire to spend my money or my retirement here.

Breaks my heart because this is jus such a beautiful state but most of the citizens have their hand out.

I and my wife just decided we are not supporting this state and their money grubbing policies anymore. They can do what they wish and tax as much as they want.

We will not participate in their crazed adventure and spend our life and sizable assets in Tennessee. Sucks to be a money grubbing bitch of a state!!

8. Patients will be charged on a sliding scale, with the poorest New Yorkers paying nothing.

AKA

Illegal Vermin Parasites pay nothing

I pay for them with some new tax

14. There will not be enough docs and hospitals participating to make it viable

That said, it may take a while for them to figure that out. They cannot compel participation.
