A write-up in USA Today by reporter Julie Appleby about health insurance gets some attention from our friends at the Business and Media Institute, including a cite of our very own Hans Bader and his scorecard of the nation’s Top 10 Worst State Attorneys General:
Appleby also turned to two New England Democratic attorneys general that have a predisposition against health insurers. Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, recently rated the worst attorney general by Hans Bader of the free market Competitive Enterprise Institute, has a history of going after businesses — including tobacco, Microsoft and the health insurance industry.
The other, Massachusetts Attorney General Thomas Reilly, also ranks in Bader’s top 10 of bad attorneys general. Reilly has filed a lawsuit against the HealthMarkets, because they fail to cover services required by the state, according to the USA Today story.
