I rarely agree with our present administration but I have to give them credit for trying to block the merger of Cigna and Aetna. If this monopoly is allowed to go forward then we will all be screwed as one major faction of the Medical Axis of Evil gets stronger. What I really found funny, though, was the reasoning used by the government:
the administration will seek to block two giant health care mergers, citing concerns that the deals could drive up health care premiums, undermine innovation and reduce competition.
Drive up health premiums? Undermine innovation? Reduce competition? The Affordable Care Act did all of that! Can we get rid of that too?Tweet
