Done, but it appears to be just about a dead heat.

It may not be the "best" way, but it is a start.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)

Thanks.

Medicare and Medicaid are fraught with enormous fraud, with much of it perpetrated by shyster attorneys, Russian mafia, crooked physicians and equipment providers and all often well heeled donating cronies of politicians. Many of them bring in collaborators from the public to assist for what turns out to be a relatively small cut individually.

The only solution (just like employers of illegals) is to make severe examples out of those who are doing it (like they’d do in China) and take their heads off and/or send them away for life. Typically these types get off because they have their connections.

They should offer significant rewards for whistle-blowers. The problem starts at the scam organizer level where they figure it out and then draw in low lifes to make it all work while they profit. The real threat to the USA comes not just from those at the bottom scamming but also from big time crooks taking taxpayers to the cleaners.

Another aspect is the disability scam where crooked docs and attorneys collude to get a cut of the action at our expense.
