    Frederick February Canvass

    For the last year, we've been talking to Maryland residents about the issues that matter most to them. We've broken through partisan divides by engaging people we met in conversation about their values and vision for their communities to identify common ground. 

    We're returning to communities all across the state to canvass on these issues and talk to people about our chosen candidates, from western Maryland, to the DC suburbs, to the Eastern Shore!

    On the weekend of February 24th and 25th, Progressive Maryland will be having our second MONTHLY MASS CANVASSES all over the state!

    We will be canvassing for progressive values and to elect our endorsed candidates, including:

    Gubernatorial Candidate Ben Jealous

    No matter where you are, there's an opportunity for you to join us! 

    Date: Saturday, February 24th, 2018 starting at 10am

  • Fight for Medicare TODAY, so we can have Medicare for ALL TOMORROW!

    330 signatures

    Many proposals are being put forward on both sides of the aisle, some with better intentions than others. The Maryland for Guaranteed Healthcare campaign is just that - a campaign for guaranteed healthcare. With the strides the ACA has done to improve the healthcare system, there will still remain 30 million Americans uninsured, with many who have insurance still not having needed medical coverage and care. 

    In the immediate short-term, our advocacy has been concentrated heavily on preventing up to 23 million Americans from having their medical coverage taken away. Millions of people in our nation rely with their lives on services provided by Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP. We are demanding our elected officials such as Governor Hogan, Representative Andy Harris, and others to not only oppose ANY healthcare cuts for Maryland, as well as to take a leading position that everyone deserves healthcare and supporting policy solutions that make that goal a reality. By fighting for Medicare (and all federal programs of equal importance) today, we are retaining the system that will help us fight for Medicare for ALL, tomorrow.

    In her Letter to the Editor to Delmarva Now, Vice President of the Lower Shore Progressive Caucus Whitney Palmer writes, 


    "Throughout the state, Marylanders have benefited from Medicaid expansion; conservative numbers state 291,000 individuals have gained coverage — and the majority live in rural areas. Our health care system has high administrative costs and the cost of care is set by profit motives. Insurance and pharmaceutical companies prioritize corporate profits over the health of Americans — and treat health care as a commodity.

    Health care is a human right and moral issue, not a commodity. Our goal should be to provide more and higher quality care to Americans, especially access to mental health services. We at Progressive Maryland believe that should take the form of a single-payer, Medicare-for-all system. A single-payer system will result in savings of [hundreds of billions of dollars annually].

    When physicians can focus on people’s health instead of bureaucracy or creating a plan based on a person’s ability to pay, they can address health needs and prioritize prevention. Additionally, people will no longer declare bankruptcy because of medical bills. Fewer people will die.

    It is time for the United States to prioritize people over profits and join the rest of the world with Medicare for All."
