On Monday, Another North Country Resident Confronted Cobb in Queensbury:
- “(Cobb) refused to take firm stances on popular Democratic policies like Medicare for All or a series of sweeping bail reforms set to go into effect in New York in January.“
- Tedra Cobb“dodged a request from activist Scott DeNooyer asking her to support Medicare for All,saying she looked forward to working with him on this issue…The Stefanik campaign was quick to respond Tuesday, putting out a statement accusing Cobb of flip-flopping on the issue, citing an article from the North Country Now news website that says the Democrat favors single-payer health insurance.”
- “Both publicly and in response to questions from reporters, Cobb declined to take a position on Medicare for All, saying it was a ‘conversation’ she is willing to have. She also would not weigh in on the progressive bail reforms New York will enact at the start of the new year, which will eliminate cash bail for most misdemeanors and non-violent offenses and havestirred controversyamong district attorneys and Republican state legislators.”
