mel1515 Thank you for your support. With regards to my opponents position on the Affordable Care Act I believe, based on her responses at the Candidate Forum's, that she is very much behind it. I also recall her stating that she wanted to propose legislation that would allow people with no insurance to have free medical care at the privately owned urgent care centers such as Stat Med, First Med and a like. These facilities are privately owned and operated, I can't imagine how the government can pass law that they MUST provide medical care for free. Our current medical care structure allows for that. Anyone requiring healthcare can walk into an emergency room and they will be examined and provided the necessary services. If the debate were to have been aired you would have heard my response to this issue which stated that if this Affordable Care Act was to have been the solution to the 40 million people in the U.S. that didn't have insurance, why did they not devise a plan to implement it initially to accommodate those people? why was it that years after it has been approved, and a Supreme Court decision has been made those same people STILL do not have insurance. that to me is the real travesty of the Affordable Care Act and its inability to serve anyone even today. In our great country no one should be without the right to have medical attention and to be given preventive and emergency medical care. The idea was not a new one, the implementation has been abysmal.
Thanks for all your support and I hope the people all come out on November 5th to vote for a better Queens and make the changes that will benefit the people of Queens. I thank you for all your support and look forward to being the ositive change we need!12 months ago
For the record...withe regards to this article reporting that there was a technical issue that has forced the cancellation of this debate as told by QPTV, it's a lie. Call QPTV and demand that they air the debate, demand that they tell you the truth! I will not allow QPTV to tape me on Oct 21st at St John's University. It is my choice and I refuse to allow a Public Television station manipulate the public and the public's perception of any candidate.
I invite all to please attend the St John's
thank you!University Candidates Forum at 7PM this Monday night October 21st.12 months ago
Apparently you must not know me very well 100PCCPres. I never give up, that's why I'm here today because I was taught to fight for what was just and to fight for what I believe is best not just for me but for those around me. Maybe you should pay attention to the facts more and leave the partisan politics to the people that don''t even remember the neighborhoods and towns they represent. This is a local election that will have an impact on you everyday. This is a very important election and the future of this borough hangs in the balance based on who is chosen to lead this borough for the next 4 years and probably the next 8 years. Remember, in 2009 when Ms Katz represented her constituents in the City Council she defied the will of the people and voted to extend term limits for a ll local officials. the people voted no not once but twice! she and her cronies knew better than the people and reversed the will of the people. That was done for a reason....but it didn't work out for Christine Quinn and the people will have the last word for Melinda Katz. This type of action should not be rewarded, not now and not ever. this is our government , one of the people no the elected officials! I know my place and it's to speak for the 2.3 million people of Queens, and not to speak for the people who finance my campaign and party that advances their agenda through her.
That ferry ride with Melinda may have to wait for a while but I would be glad to take you and all that want to join us on a ferry ride any day anytime! Thanks for your comment and i hope we can discuss any issues you may have soon. my website is www.arcabascio2013.com
