Per a press release from their offices, Connecticut "Attorney Richard Blumenthal and Healthcare Advocate Kevin P. Lembo today asked the state's five biggest health insurers for materials they may have sent policyholders regarding the impact of proposed reforms on the Medicare Advantage and prescription drug programs." The head of the Connecticut AFL-CIO applauded the move, but would presumably object (and with reason) if some successor of Blumenthal's demanded to review all of his communications with union members to see whether they included any statements that were deceptive, factually ill-grounded or otherwise not congruent with the public interest.
