State House Democrats say their agenda is designed to build a stronger middle class, by raising their wages and holding down their costs.

Democrats are guaranteeing, not just promising, to raise the state minimum wage to $15 an hour.

“Its time has come, plain and simple, its time has come,” said Delegate Dereck David, D-Prince George’s County.

Other items on their agenda include cutting prescription drug costs and ensuring health insurance coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions.
