Insurance Advocate;4/20/2009, Vol. 120 Issue 8, p28
The author criticizes the reintroduced optional federal charter legislation in the U.S. House in 2009. He says that the National Insurance Consumer Protection Act was repackaged by legislators with names intended to take advantage of citizen's fears. He asserts that the bill is laughable since the federal government is the reason behind the economic crisis in the country in 2009.
