Senator DeMint on the Obama 'Rampage'

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

Last Fourth of July, South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint published Saving Freedom: We Can Stop America's Slide into Socialism. Senator DeMint (ranked by National Journal as the Senate’s most conservative member), has been making headlines as one of President Obama's most vocal critics on everything from the economy, health care reform to Cash for Clunkers. He joins The Takeaway with his take on how to correct the country's path.

"Right now we don’t allow insurance companies to compete state to state, so a few insurance companies can essentially monopolize the business in each state. If we created a national market for health care with hundreds of companies competing for our business the price would go down and the variety of products would go up."
