IBJ Letters To The Editor

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?

  • re
    Guy, there are probably more than 30 attorneys that are familiar with the story on Tim Durham and where he has spent the life savings of Ohio residents (Read Greg Andrews article in last week's IBJ, still online, and then google TIM DURHAM OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE) but why does no one do anything?

    Because they are ALL attorneys!
