Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement after the Obama Administration confirmed double-digit premium hikes in Obamacare:

“How much longer will the American people have to suffer because the President and Congressional Democrats can’t admit that Obamacare has been a grave mistake? Year after year, month after month, we’ve heard of more premium increases, smaller networks, and fewer health insurance options because of Obamacare. The latest premium increases coming next year for benchmark plans—an average of 25 percent across the 39 states that use the federal healthcare.gov marketplace—add insult to injury. Working families across America can’t afford to continue paying for President Obama’s mistakes. House Republicans have already outlined a new health care reform initiative, part of the Better Way agenda, to finally deliver the affordable health insurance options the American people were promised.”
