A shell game in a smoke filled house of mirrors.

New York City will begin guaranteeing comprehensive health care to every single resident regardless of someone’s ability to pay or immigration status, an unprecedented plan that will protect the more than half-a-million New Yorkers currently using the ER as a primary provider, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

Mr. J’s booze problem made it easy for me to more or less take control of the class.
