Yet Another Reason People Hate Politics

From 2011 until February of this year, Marilyn Tavenner ran the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal agency that runs Medicare and Medicaid. Among the things that agency does is set the amounts Medicare pays to certain insurers and reviews all other Medicare and Medicaid premiums and rates.

Last week Tavenner took a new job as president of American Health Insurance Plans, an association of health insurance companies.

Which will make her those insurers’ top lobbyist.

Of course, virtually all of those health insurers have major business dealings with…you know it’s coming…the federal agency Tavenner ran until six months ago.

It’s disgusting.
