Writes Kay B. Day:
The top strategist for the left was talking to Bill O’Reilly and the talk show host asked about being able to purchase insurance across state lines. In his speech Obama cited an obstacle to reform—“In 34 states 75 percent of the insurance market is controlled by 4 or 5 companies.”
When O’Reilly mentioned this, Axelrod suggested—I’m paraphrasing—deregulation was a matter for the states.
