Am I surprised at today's front page news at www.sptimes.com? The CEO of Wellcare was a GOP "Pioneer" fundraiser and he was rewarded (I mean appointed by President Bush to the SEC). Perhaps the federal officials who benefited from Wellcare are congressmen/women. I see a major conflict of interest that the CEO (name in paper) was benefiting from Medicare & Medicaid in a company that was on the stock exchange was on the SEC. Maybe Harriet Miers' brain never told the President that there was an appearance of impropriety and maybe Wellcare's CEO shouldn't sit on the SEC Board.
How can this CEO of Wellcare be on the SEC and all that stock trading was going on at Wellcare? I thought companies doing business with the government were supposed to play by the rules instead of profiteering which goes beyond capitalism. What if they stole our taxpayer money to enrich Wellcare's stockholders and he's on the SEC?
This is huge but if the press plays the tune of the current administration, this story won't last very long.
Wellcare CEO serves on the SEC while overbilling Medicare and Medicaid. SMELLS REAL BAD.
He may have been using his position at SEC to cover for his alleged grant theft and racketeering against Medicare/Medicaid.
...and he was a RNC Pioneer. That's rich. Or, I should say, he's rich.
If somebody's on the SEC, they are supposed to have scruples and integrity, are they not? Well, that was before RNC fundraisers were nicknamed Pioneers or Mavericks and rewarded with lofty positions in govt just cuz they are big fundraisers. If this ties George Soros to George Bush, oops, it goes back to Terri and why she's no longer with us.
I'm waiting for beginners to post "prove it". I think I already have been for the past four years.

"If somebody's on the SEC, they are supposed to have scruples and integrity, are they not?"
Yes, and that was the idea FDR had in appointing the contemptible Joseph Kennedy as the first head of the SEC....../s
IIRC it was FDR who said he had to appoint a crook to catch crooks, or something like that......
