Anthem needs to be reined inRestricted Content

January 26, 2009
[In response to a Jan. 12 story,] it's apparent that Anthem takes full advantage of the virtual monopoly it enjoys in Indiana and it does so on the backs of not only doctors and hospitals, but most assuredly on its paying customers, as well.

IU striving to keep tuition affordableRestricted Content

December 29, 2008
Your Dec. 8 editorial, "State flunking affordability test," quotes liberally from the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education's recent report, which concludes that 49 of 50 states—including Indiana—deserve an "F" for their affordability efforts. Unfortunately, this grade is based on an analysis that dramatically overstates college costs in Indiana—or at least those costs incurred by Hoosiers attending Indiana University.

  1. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  2. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  3. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.

  4. My best always! Dave Wilson

  5. How did Columbus, Ohio pull off a car share service without a single dollar of public subsidies? They must not have a mayor who is on the take like Indianapolis. Daimler Benz offers Columbus residents their Smart Cars on a market-driven basis: "This has some neat features. Cars don’t have to be picked up and dropped off at fixed points. You find one with your smart phone based on GPS, and drop it off anywhere in the service area you can find a spot – even at a meter. These cars aren’t required to feed the meter so you get free on street parking while using them. I was told this system was put in place on a market basis without subsidies – and that the vendor actually pays the city for the use of the meters." http://www.urbanophile.com/2014/05/26/checking-in-on-columbus/
