Yes, Barry, Marylanders really are Progressive

In his latest column, Rockeymoore Cummings’ Challenge at Political Maryland, Barry Rascovar offers some unsolicited advice to Maryland’s new State Democratic Party Chair: “Run to the center Maya!” Despite Democrats’ 2 to 1 advantage in voter registration over Republicans, we’re really a pretty moderate group, claims Rascovar, who don’t cotton to recklessly expensive left-wing fantasies like Medicare-for-All.

Rascovar’s complaint about cost is spectacularly ill-timed coming hours after the Guardian reported that studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the conservative Mercatus Institute at George Mason University both found that embracing single-payer or Medicare-for-All would lead to trillions of dollars in savings over the next 10 years and a healthier populace. Rascovar is equally wrong when it comes  to its popularity. The Washington Post reported on September 18 that a majority of Marylanders want single-payer.
