MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO SHARES HIS HEALTH CARE PLAN WITH ABC'S 'THE VIEW'

Image
Bill de Blasio shares his plan for free healthcare in NYC with The View.
"Everyone should have a right to healthcare," the NYC mayor says.
"Let's face it — the emergency room is the family doctor now for millions and millions of Americans and tax dollars pay for it," de Blasio says of the current system in place. "If you have a guarantee of healthcare, no matter who you are, you get a primary care doctor assigned to you, you have the ability to get all of the other care you need ... whatever it is, if you have access to it you will actually get the healthcare you need when you need it."
"If they don't get healthcare, if they get sick, if everyone is sick, if the whole community isn't healthy, then we all suffer," he explains why undocumented immigrants are included in his universal healthcare plan. "That's the blunt reality of this country — undocumented immigrants are part of our economy,"

Following the world premiere at Steppenwolf in Chicago and prior to the London premiere at the National Theatre of Great Britain, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Steppenwolf ensemble member Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park) discusses his provocative new play Downstate. Set in downstate Illinois, in a group home shared by four sex offenders negotiating their place in a world that doesn't want them, Downstate pushes moral boundaries as it questions what happens when society deems anyone unworthy of forgiveness.

DON LEMON SPEAKS TO 'THE VIEW' ON HOMOPHOBIA IN BLACK COMMUNITY & KEVIN HART'S APOLOGY

Image
Don Lemon On The View
Don Lemon on homophobia in the black community and his call with Kevin Hart after discussing the controversy publicly.
"I felt that I had to speak for my group, my people or nobody else was going to," the CNN anchor explains why he initially spoke out about the Kevin Hart controversy: "I needed [Kevin Hart] and society to see sort of the error of our ways when it comes to homophobia in our society."
"He said 'I'm sorry, I apologize.' He did it in his way and we can't bully people." Lemon discusses his call with Kevin Hart after speaking out about the controversy, and Hart's apology days later: "If he doesn't want to be an ally for the gay community, that's his prerogative. But it is missing an opportunity I think sometimes."
Monday on The View:
Co-presidents of the 2019 Women's March, Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland, join LIVE!
