WASHINGTON, D.C. — FreedomWorks announces the launch of a six-figure ad campaign in the state of Tennessee in response to recent efforts by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) to set government mandated rates for American pharmaceutical drugs as part of a surprise billing proposal.
Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“Government rate-setting in any form, in the health care sector or otherwise, brings us closer to the kind of full-on government control that the far-left advocates for, regardless of the party which proposes it. The proposals by HHS as well as some Senate Republicans ignore the reality that government interference in the healthcare space has created the problems we see today, and makes the fatal mistake of thinking that further government interference can solve these ills. From rate-setting to grant programs to increased requirements on insurers and healthcare providers, the conservative red flags abound in so-called Republican proposals. While the rising cost of pharmaceutical drugs and surprise billing is a major problem, these proposals are not the answer.”
FreedomWorks’ ad campaign will run in the Knoxville and Nashville metro areas for a two week period beginning today, July 18.
