I keep on hearing about making health insurance companies compete with each other

But how do they not do that now?

A lot of states ban insurance companies from other states from competing with insurance industries in other states... that's just the tip of the iceberg... there is also collusion between insurance industries to set rates and "rip-off" their customers such as "pre-existing conditions"... that isn't competition, that's government and health care collusion... not exactly free market principles... more like liberal principles since they are embedding government functions into corporations.. what you get is aka corruption and fraud.. I wonder how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is going to turn out... I have bad, bad feelings about it...
