The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Alex Swoyer

New York City Mayor Bill de Bla­sio would not rule out a 2020 run for the White House on Sun­day, but he said his party could be “a lot bolder.”

“I’m fo­cused on the job I have,” the Demo­cratic mayor said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

He said his party should speak to work­ing-class vot­ers about get­ting them ad­e­quate health care cov­er­age.

His com­ments came af­ter he pro­posed that New York spend $100 mil­lion a year on pub­lic heath cov­er­age for the poor, in­clud­ing costs for il­le­gal im­mi­grants.

“Our plan is guar­an­teed health­care for all,” Mr. de Bla­sio said. “We should have sin­gle payer in this coun­try … Medi­care for all.”
