Your editorial last week on Susan Bayh’s memberships on health care company boards was remarkably restrained. There
are SCREAMING conflicts. The reformation of the health care “system” has the potential to dwarf the
impact Social Security or Medicare has on society. We need our elected officials to make decisions unfettered from these
conflicts of interest. When asked about health care reform, Senator Bayh stated he was “agnostic.”
I am certain Angela Braly of WellPoint is not “agnostic” about health care reform. Susan Bayh is on
her board. I submit there are at least 30 attorneys in Indianapolis alone that know more about health care law than Susan
Bayh does. Why weren’t they asked to serve on WellPoint’s board?
