WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on Obamacare’s Open Enrollment period for 2017, which began today:

"For far too many Americans, Obamacare open enrollment means it’s open season on their wallets. These eye-popping premium hikes are just more evidence that Obamacare is not working. Here’s a better way: repeal this broken law and implement real, patient-centered solutions so that you can pick the plan the meets your needs—not Washington’s mandates."
