120th AD: Barclay, Tosh make final case to voters

From Matthew Reitz on Owsego County News Now

"If elected, Tosh says she would implement bold policies to improve the local economy and quality of life, starting with affordable health care. Tosh is a vocal proponent for the New York Health Act, a bill that would create a statewide single-payer health care system.

The formation of such a single-payer system would make the state more attractive to businesses by cutting insurance costs, Tosh argued at a recent debate between the two candidates hosted by The Palladium-Times, adding that providing affordable health care to everyone would boost entrepreneurship and remove burdens from starting businesses.

“Small business is the engine that drives our innovation, our invention and our progress, so let’s give that engine some gas,” she said. “Lets take away the fear of branching out on our own and starting a new business by not being able to supply health insurance to our families.”
