Eliot Spitzer on Health Care

Former Democrat

Propose a Stem Cell and Innovation Fund to voters

We will propose a Stem Cell and Innovation Fund to be presented to the voters for approval. The fund will provide long-term investment, overseen by independent industry experts, for stem cell innovations and other types of applied research that will lead to direct commercial application. This investment will repay itself many times over in increased jobs, economic activity and improved health.

Focus on affordability in NY health care system

New York State’s health care system faces an affordability crisis. Over the past 10 years, the cost of an insurance policy for a family of four has doubled, and the total cost of our state’s Medicaid program has nearly doubled.
