In order to prevent George Soros from being part owner of the Washington Nationals, Tom Davis threatens to remove Baseaball’s antitrust exemption.
I mean, this isn’t the first time Congress has threatened to do this. But I think this is the first time it’s been done simply to attack a political opponent. Am I wrong? Look at this quote from Davis, the House Government reform chairman:
“I don’t think it’s the Nats that get hurt. I think it’s Major League Baseball that gets hurt. They enjoy all sorts of exemptions from antitrust laws”
I say, go ahead. Remove the freaking exemption. Anything to get away from the influence of Government mobsters.
Actually, I think some outside competition might be good for MLB. What do you think?
