The Market Institute is informing voters around the country about a price fixing scheme that Republicans are considering in Congress.

The awareness campaign is taking place in over 25 Media Markets across 7 States (North Carolina, Tennessee, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, South Dakota, and Wyoming). The effort includes Broadcast and Cable Television; Radio; Online and Social Media Advertising Campaign with a price tag of over $1,000,000.
The focus of the ad campaign is a bill that is currently under consideration in the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) that includes price controls and will further erode the doctor – patient relationship, S.1895.
Charles Sauer, President of The Market Institute, says, “Surprise medical billing is problem that must be solved. However, S.1895 will put more control of our healthcare decisions in the hands of government bureaucrats and the big insurance companies. This price-fixing-scheme is a prescription for fewer doctors, longer wait times, and less access to care. Government bureaucrats and insurance companies should not be standing between patients and their doctor.”
The team at The Market Institute is delivering signatures to elected representatives in Washington, DC. Organization volunteers are also reaching out to registered voters through phone calls and text messages encouraging members of Congress to oppose price fixing in S. 1895.
