I tried calling Betsey Markey’s (D-CO) office to find out where I could read the legislation she and Representative Tom Perriello (D-VA) had planned to introduce this week “that will repeal the special anti-trust exemption for health insurance companies and medical malpractice insurance companies,” but was dumped into voice mail.

So I called the office of my representative, Barney Frank (D-MA), and learned that all federal offices are closed today due to the weekend snowstorm and I was talking to someone in his Newton, Massachusetts office. More snow is expected for the DC area Tuesday night into Wednesday.

I guess we will have to wait till later in the week to learn the details of Markey and Perriello’s bill and how it differs from Representative John Dingell’s (D-MI) H.R. 3962 and it’s relationship to H.R. 3590 — The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — the infamous Senate health care reform bill.
