DCCC Launches New Campaign: ‘Sick n’ Broke: The Game Republicans Play with Your Health’

As Republicans continue to stack the deck for special interests and focus on the wrong priorities, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched a new paid campaign in the districts of 53 vulnerable House Republicans and candidates to highlight the totality of the GOP health care agenda, which hurts Americans at every moment in their lives.

Sick N’ Broke – modeled after the Game of Life – features an online board game that tracks the many costly games Republicans play with Americans’ health care, from the cradle to the grave.  

“Whether it’s being able to afford an emergency c-section, making sure kids get the right nutrition, ensuring women don’t have to pay more for their care or whether its guaranteeing Medicare, Republicans play reckless games that hurt your health at every stage of life – all because they would rather stack the deck for their special interest buddies,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Now you can see just how much of a mess Republicans would make of your health care – but one spoiler alert: in this game, you can’t win.”
