“With the general election candidates for Maryland coming into view, bi-partisan healthcare advocates are calling for all the candidates to support the Inflation Reduction Act at the federal level, as it is set to expire in 2025.

MD Healthcare For All President Vinny DeMarco tells WMDT that Marylanders saw savings on their health insurance through the Medicaid expansion, as well as a temporary expansion of subsidies for ACA private insurance.

DeMarco tells WMDT that despite voting against the measure he is calling on Rep. Andy Harris to support the measure come November, as well as the delegation to expand the reach of the inflation reduction act to non-Medicaid recipients as President Biden has claimed he wanted to do if re-elected.

“We want every candidate for U.S. House and U.S. Senate, Maryland, to endorse the Inflation Reduction Act by July 15th. Then we will let the people of Maryland know all Marylanders benefit from the Inflation Reduction Act. And we want to make sure that all members of our congressional delegation support it,” DeMarco said.”
