Sunday October 20, Our Revolution Maryland co-hosted with our close ally the Maryland Progressive Healthcare Coalition a Medicare for All Town Hall at the Gaithersburg Library.
Our great panel including Our Revolution Chair Larry Cohen spoke about the multitude of benefits that enacting Medicare for All in Congress would bring to the American people. But we did more than speak. We also listened to concerns voiced by audience members and responded to a number of questions. Continue reading →
Elijah Cummings was a towering American hero. He was the most important public leader in our state. In the coming days and weeks much will be said in his honor.
As Chair of Our Revolution Maryland, I write both in my official capacity and personally based on my enduring admiration for Congressman Cummings.
Whatever the occasion, whatever issue he was addressing, regardless of the question he was answering or the confusion he was clarifying, Mr. Cummings always brought the discussion back to the underlying issue: democracy.
9/20/19 – Poor Steny Hoyer can’t catch a break. Here Our Revolution activists challenge him to support health care for his constituents not a for profit system that benefits the pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies that fill his campaign coffers.
Progressive Richard (RJ) Eskow has worn and wears many hats. A highly regarded writer for magazines like the Nation, Common Dreams, HuffPost, and many others, he also hosts a successful videocast – the Zero Hour. In a former life, Richard worked in the health insurance industry. He is now a full-throated supporter of Medicare-for-All. Recently Richard wrote a fundraising appeal to Our Revolution Maryland activists and subscribers.
Richard has agreed to speak at our Medicare-for-All Town Hall in Gaithersburg on October 20. He joins an already formidable lineup including: Maryland District 39 Delegate Gabe Acevero, Our Revolution Chair and former CWA President Larry Cohen, Laura Kaplan-Weisman, M.D., and Sanjeef “Dr America” Sriram, M.D. We hope you can join us as well 2-4pm at the Gaithersburg Library. Please RSVP right here.
Way back in April, Our Revolution Maryland endorsed Bernie Sanders for President. But if you haven’t read our April Newsletter, you might have missed that fact. We noted: “Over the past few weeks ORMD Chapters polled members and the results were overwhelmingly in favor of endorsing Bernie with over 65% of respondents saying they support his candidacy. ORMD will be leading Maryland for Sanders both in the Free State and in nearby states.”
Unsurprisingly, Our Revolution – ORMD’s parent organization – endorsed Bernie shortly after he announced that he was running for President in 2020. A few days ago, Our Revolution Massachussetts announced that it too is endorsing Bernie. Many other Our Revolution groups around the country have also formally endorsed Bernie for President!
