King No on Health Antitrust Vote

Steve King No Vote on ending insurance antitrust exemption

Iowa's own Steve King was on the short end of a lopsided 406-19 vote today on the Health Insurance Industry Fair Competition Act (HR 4626). The very popular bill ends the blanket antitrust exemption afforded to health insurance companies since 1945.

Tom Latham joined 153 Republicans, and all Democrats present, in voting yes. (All 19 nays were from the GOP.)

Now it's on to the Senate... where not much happens.
