Actually, two interesting points:
1. The silence is deafening from the Insurance Commissioner's office. Not only has Nancy Willing inquired at least five times regarding any investigation of this mess, Senator Petersen requested an Insurance Commissioner's inquiry when I sent her the materials, and Dr. Vince Schaller, Medical Director of the Lantana/Hockessin Walk-in Clinic has filed multiple complaints and inquiries.
From Karin Weldin Stewart's office:
... crickets ...
2. This has also been an ongoing primer in who does and doesn't respond to real inquiries from citizens and constituents. I live neither in Petersen's district, nor in John Kowalko's. Both responded almost instantly when I asked. I also always get quick responses from legislators like Paul Baumbach, Brian Bushweller, and Ernie Lopez--again: I live in none of their districts.
On the other hand, I have sent all the same information (repeatedly) to Senator Greg Lavelle and Representative Joe Miro. I do live in their district, and Dr. Schaller's clinic is a small business within their district that employs several dozen people, and is the only such clinic in our district. From the two of them:
... crickets ...
Let's not make this into a partisan thing (with Lopez there is at least one R on the list who has been responsive, and I would generally count Senator Dave Lawson on that list as well).
And Lord knows that John Kowalko and I don't see eye-to-eye on single-payer, that I don't agree with Karen Petersen or Brian Bushweller on casino bail-outs, or with Lopez on trans-gender rights or gun control, etc. etc.
But all of these individuals have--in my experience--always taken their positions seriously enough that when anyone brings them a substantive issue, they do their jobs and look into it.
