No, I'm not talking about God & Sinners or you and your neurotic family-- I'm talking about the two congressional health care reform bills.

One thing I know should be present in the final bill that will be sent to the President's desk: repeal of anti-trust protection for the health insurance industry. In 1945, Congress passed the McCarran-Ferguson Act, giving the health insurance business such protections, and allowing the States to regulate such businesses without federal interference. Now that insurance is a transnational cash cow scam industry, the Feds must be allowed to step and in, and absolutely the business should be subject to the same anti-trust laws as other businesses.

See Sen. Patrick Leahy's (D-VT) proposed amendment to the health care reform bill.

The fat lady ain't sung yet, let's keep on the pressure!
