Pelosi To Schedule Insurance Industry Antitrust Vote

HopeTracker| Love her or hate her. No one can deny that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a formidable opponent. With broad consensus on American health care perilously close to collapse, Pelosi plans to ‘take a shot’ at the health insurance industry next week, scheduling a vote to revoke its half-century-old exemption from antitrust laws.

We find this move nothing less than brilliant, as Pelosi drives a power serve into the net of high insurance costs, due to lack of competition among insurers in states. The move will also help to clarify where Republicans and wavering Democrats stand in relation to the insurance industry. via Politico

Nice move, Nancy. Anne
