      Wife of Rep on Health Subcommittee Is Trading Health Stocks

      As Illinois Democratic Rep. Bradley Schneider helps craft health care legislation, his wealthy wife has been buying and selling investments in health care companies.

      A member of the House Ways and Means Committee’s Health subcommittee, Schneider has more power than most members of Congress to impact tax and other revenue-raising issues relating to the ACA, Medicare drug prices, Medicaid, and many other aspects of the health care system. At the same time, his wife is heavily invested in several companies in the health care industry, raising a potential conflict of interest for the representative.

      Alliant/Mesirow is part of Alliant’s insurance brokerage, which has a health care division, Alliant Healthcare Services. Alliant has its own health insurance company, and has several other health-related operations. Dann has an ownership interest in Alliant Holdings LP worth between $250,001 and $500,000, according to Schneider’s 2017 financial disclosure.

      Since 2017, Dann has bought and sold stock in other companies in the health care industry, including Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (she bought and then sold between $250,001 and $500,000 worth of stock) and Teladoc (she bought $100,001 and $250,000 worth of stock).

      You don’t need an R after your name to be a chiseler.
