Maryland Dem Gov Candidates Remain Silent On Ben Jealous’ Radical Proposals

Do Kamenetz and Baker support Ben Jealous’ massive tax hikes and unaffordable government programs?

Maryland Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous has staked his campaign on unaffordable, radical policies including a state takeover of Maryland’s healthcare system and “free” college. Jealous has refused to provide any cost estimates for these massive spending plans, and concedes that he is open to undisclosed massive tax hikes to pay for them. The Washington Post has slammed Jealous’ proposals as “reckless” and “irresponsible.”

While Jealous continues to use these pie-in-the-sky proposals to promise “free” things in exchange for votes, other Democratic candidates for governor – including Kevin Kamenetz and Rushern Baker – have remained silent, refusing to weigh in on one side or the other.

It’s time for Kamenetz and Baker to take a stand. Do they too support Ben Jealous’ massive tax hikes and unaffordable government programs? Do they support a plan that, as Jealous himself admits, could ban private health insurance and subsequently cause mass layoffs in the industry?

Kamenetz and Baker are acting like typical politicians, refusing to answer even the most basic questions about their policy views.
