Health care, government style

Our current government (headed by Obama if you have forgotten) wants to take over an additional 1/6th of the economy, in the form of their new health care proposal.

According to Attorney General Eric Holder, Medicare which currently accounts for 14% of all federal spending, is rife with waste, fraud and abuse. “By all accounts, every year we lose tens of billions of dollars in Medicare and Medicaid funds to fraud.”

So lets give them an even bigger program so that they can lose even more money!

Harvard Professor Malcolm Sparrow, a specialist in health care fraud teaching at the Kennedy School of Government, has estimated that as much as 20% of the federal health program budgets – or approximately $150 billion – is eaten up by improper payments every year.

So let me get this straight, the current portion of medical spending that the government does is so inefficient that there is actually "a specialist in health care fraud" teaching at the Kennedy School of Government! The current medical spending is so racked with fraud that there are specialists in the field of Medicare fraud! That must mean that this new health care proposal by Obama is actually two bills in one! Health care and a jobs bill! Cause if this monstrosity passes, there will be a need for many more "specialists in health care fraud" along with other types of specialists in navigating what will become a quagmire of rules and regulations that will make the current insurance maze look like a straight line.

Call your representative and tell them to say NO to this pile of garbage!
