LOCAL HEADLINES & CHYRONS: Premiums Skyrocketing Because of Republican Failures on Healthcare

Republicans have actively sabotaged America’s healthcare system and caused premiums to skyrocket in states across America. Unfortunately for everyone involved, Speaker Ryan’s and vulnerable House Republicans represent constituents and voters who will be hit extremely hard by their reckless actions.

“In states across America premiums are skyrocketing because Congressional Republicans have failed to work with Democrats to improve access to affordable healthcare,” said DCCC Spokesman Tyler Law. “Voters already blame Congressional Republicans for these drastic premium increases, and now Speaker Ryan and House Republicans are rushing to oppose a bipartisan deal to lower costs.”

House Republicans’ failure on healthcare has been plastered across front pages and chyrons across America. Here’s a look at the local coverage keeping vulnerable Republicans up at night…
