Should we Repeal Health Industry Antitrust Exemptions?

    

According to Democracy Now, Congressional Representatives "Perriello and Betsy Markey, have announced plans to introduce a measure this week to repeal the insurance industry's exemption from federal antitrust laws. Critics say the McCarran-Ferguson Act of 1945 has granted the insurance industry a captive market with no curbs on price fixing and other anti-competitive practices. A similar measure passed in a House committee vote last year but has stalled with the breakdown of talks on healthcare reform." Should congress repeal the McCarran-Ferguson Act and make Health Care companies liable to the same anti-monopoly laws as are other firms?
