Republicans Have Failed California Families in Addressing the Opioid Epidemic

In response to California Republicans’ continued failure in addressing the opioid epidemic, affecting families all over the state, DNC spokesperson Vedant Patel released the following statement:


“This failure to address the opioid crisis stems straight from the Trump administration and congressional Republicans. Families in California and across the country are waiting for leadership, and instead Republicans have repeatedly undermined the Affordable Care Act, causing premiums to skyrocket and making access to care harder for those with opioid addiction issues. While this administration and congressional Republicans push drastic budget cuts and the repeal of the ACA, Democrats will continue to fight for Californians so that they have the resources they need to combat this crisis and access to quality treatment services.”
