Medicare Fraud

   You may have heard the right trashing Medicare because of fraud, what they do not tell you is who is doing that fraud. The truth is that they may not know the full story as told in this 60 Minutes' piece. What I find to be mystifying is that during the time that the Republicans were in control of both houses of Congress and the White House, they did nothing to correct this problem. They could have scored huge points by addressing that fraud, the question is why didn't they? Putting aside any conspiratorial theories of them wanting such fraud to cause Medicare to fail, I must conclude that their failure to act was the result of incompetence. The Republican Party is too use to following orders and walking in lockstep with those leading the Party. This has to be the reason behind their disregard and missing this problem. As the News video shows, President Obama is addressing the problem.

    I don't think that it's a crazy theory to say that Republicans want the Democratic Medicare program to fail and might not want to stop the fraud because it's like a death by a thousand cuts for Medicare.
