Ms. Vermin is Pence's pet pick as she worked with Gov. Pence to dismantle Medicaid while putting in place punitive laws for the state's poor seeking coverage through the ACA.
In Indiana, her plans were “about saving the dollars by any means possible”, said Indiana Representative Charlie Brown, the ranking Democrat on the public health committee.
Here is an excellent article in The Atlantic magazine on Ms. Vermin, president and founder of SVC, Inc., a "health policy consulting firm" specializing IN DISMANTLING MEDICARE AND MEDICAID at the state level with Indiana the sickening Model:

Will she divest of her holdings in SVC, Inc, which she founded and is the president and CEO? Hell no...because the emperor said so. Her appointment presents a HUGE conflict of interest but the GOP miscreants just pulled out another rubber stamp to please themselves and their orange idol (gotta privatize EVERYTHING regardless of the price in human lives as there is lots of money to be made...just ask Seema).. They will be crying in their booze come 2018 or maybe even earlier when the emperor implodes.
She comes from money in India where he father remains (Mumbai) as Dean (faculty affairs) at Indian Institute of Technology. Another elitist pickled in the brine of affluence who has never needed or wanted for anything. Wonder why her mother and her birthplace remain big secrets....
