The nationís hospital groups sued the Trump administration on Wednesday over a new federal rule that would require them to disclose the discounted prices they give insurers for all sorts of procedures.

They argued that the administration exceeded its legal authority in issuing the rule last month as part of its efforts to make the health care system much more transparent to patients. The lawsuit contends the requirement to disclose their private negotiations with insurers violates their First Amendment rights.
15 USC Chapter 1 says it is a criminal felony to attempt to monopolize a market, restrain trade or fix prices.

It carries a ten year prison term for each such attempt.

Further, Robinson-Patman makes illegal differences in pricing between buyers of like kind and quality if the intent or impact is to lessen competition.

The audacity of these firms is beyond outrageous and into the realm of the twilight zone - and must be met immediately with criminal felony indictments. It won't be because you won't insist that it is, and it is for this reason, standing alone, that you have three trillion dollars stolen from you as Americans every single year!

I'm done folks -- only perp walks or worse will do now.
