How to slash hospital costs instantly
By Perry Willis

This Downsize DC legislative proposal would hurt cronies and slash your hospital bills. Retweet

Downsize DC introduced 20 proposals to reform healthcare on January 13, 2017. Since then we’ve been rolling out individual campaigns for each of them. Our latest campaign seeks to ban cartel-creating “certificates of need.” The hardwired messages to Congress for this proposal reads... [Certificates of Need]

You have the power to lower the cost of hospitalization instantly. You can do this by passing legislation to outlaw “certificates of need.”

You can copy or edit the following sample letter for your personal comments to Congress...

"Certificates of need" are trade barriers created by federal bureaucrats and/or state and local politicians. They prevent new businesses from forming to compete with old businesses. This reduces jobs and raises prices. In the healthcare sector...

Certificates of need limit the number of hospitals in a given area. No wonder hospitalization costs so much. It’s a state-created CARTEL!

The law of supply and demand does a wonderful job bringing the right amount of food to your grocery stores. It can do the same for hospitals and other forms of medical care. Intervention by central planners is NEITHER necessary nor desirable. If you want to lower healthcare costs, you MUST increase the supply of healthcare providers. Banning "certificates of need" will help accomplish that.

-- END OF SAMPLE LETTER--

Note: You may have a Rep or Senator that is not current. We're scheduled, tomorrow, to team test the new Downsize DC website! That's why we're not diverting money or time into updating our current software. But action cannot wait. Your letter will still be delivered to the other incumbents, so please send it.

Thanks for being an ACTIVE DC Downsizer,

Perry Willis,
