A little more clear

So it turns out that insurance companies like Major League Baseball are exempt from anti-trust laws.  Huh.

That wasn’t clear at all from the recent health care ad hitting insurance companies for fearing competition.

Read this article at Slate.com for more background.

So not only do health insurance companies fear competition, they’re exempt from it by law.  That’s a pretty compelling argument for a public option if you ask me, too bad the ad trying to explain it was so muddled.
