FBI 'cracks $50m healthcare scam'
#1
I'd be so much more impressed if the FBI went out and prosecuted multinational pharma's for scamming the system by vastly over-pricing essential drugs because of the "cost of research" ( a whopping numpty's lie), create "false alarm" drugs to combat purposely released viruses -- or even set out to catch the big corporations who scam the Pentagon, etc. The list goes on and on.

But they focus instead on the little crooks - not that $50 mil is a small sum, but compared to the trillions plundered by the bankers, it's pocket change.

The sad truth is that we live in a parasites paradise.

Quote:FBI 'cracks $50m healthcare scam'
The FBI says it has uncovered a $50m (£30m) scam involving the US healthcare system, making arrests in Florida, Michigan and Colorado.

Fifty-three people have been charged with defrauding Medicare, the government insurance scheme providing care to the elderly and disabled.

Doctors allegedly gave cash to patients to sign paperwork claiming to have had treatments which they were never given.

Medical staff, patients and company executives are among those charged.

A day earlier, police arrested eight people in Miami involved in a separate scheme using fake clinics to generate fraudulent bills of around $100m.

Federal agents say they are investigating almost 2,500 other cases and that fraud is costing American taxpayers billions of dollars every year.

Those in the administration and Congress now working on wider healthcare reforms say building better safeguards will be central to any new system.

President Barack Obama is currently seeking to overhaul the US healthcare system.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

I agree David. This is just the FBI doing the protection work for the multinationals getting fleeced by the small fry. The system is criminal.
