Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous is calling for a single-payer system in Maryland.
The 19 page plan resembles that one that former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders offered through Medicare.
Jealous said that a state run single-payer system is the next logical step but he stopped short of details on how it would be funded.
The candidate said the current system has saved more than $400 million dollars and that moving to the single-payer system would save even more.
He did not rule out hiking sales or income taxes.
