DCC: Grothman & Republicans in Washington cause health care premiums to increase for Wisconsinites

This week, the Urban Institute released a report showing that health care premiums will increase for Wisconsin families by as much 20%, thanks to Congressional Republicans and the Trump Administration. Rep. Grothman and the Republican Party must answer for this increase in middle class families’ costs.

House Republicans’ vote to gut the Affordable Care Act and increase premiums, hidden in the tax bill that became law in December 2017, is directly responsible. In addition, the Trump Administration’s decision to allow insurers to sell junk plans that will leave millions under-insured will mean that middle class families end up getting less coverage AND paying higher premiums.

“Rep. Grothman’s constant attacks on affordable health care will cause health care premiums to go up for Wisconsin by as much as 20%,” said DCCC Spokesman Evan Lukaske. “As long as Grothman is in Congress, affordable health care coverage for middle class families, children and seniors is at risk. Health care is on the ballot this November, and voters are going to remember how much Grothman has cost them and their families.”
