    fraud is rampant in the welfare system!!example welfare queens get free housing and food stamps while their 4th or 5th new baby daddy secretly lives in the same resident !! grand parents get custody of their grand children to qualify for social sec benefits and then split the money with the children's parents while the whole time the children are still living at home with there parents!! these are just a few examples of how the tax payers are being ripped off!!............I GUESS THESE FACTS ARE RACIST!!

    It was MEDICAID fraud, not Welfare fraud.

    Totally different programs, ya know?

    That noted, a very long prison sentence is in order for these kinds of criminals.

    Medicaid fraud is, I am informed, one of the most lucrative ORGANIZED CRIME activities this nation suffers from.

    I've heard estimates that it costs the US $60 BILLION annually

    News Release

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    January 24, 2011

    Health care fraud prevention and enforcement efforts recover record $4 billion; new Affordable Care Act tools will help fight fraud

    Joint DOJ & HHS efforts result in largest sum ever recovered in single year; new rules under the Affordable Care Act will keep fraudulent providers and suppliers out of Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP and avoid payments of fraudulent claims

    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and U.S. Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli today announced a new report showing that the government’s health care fraud prevention and enforcement efforts recovered more than $4 billion in taxpayer dollars in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010. This is the highest annual amount ever recovered from people who attempted to defraud seniors and taxpayers. In addition, HHS today announced new rules authorized by the Affordable Care Act that will help the department work proactively to prevent and fight fraud, waste and abuse in Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

    This should be of no surprise to anyone...Fraud and corruption are a way of life in America, it starts at the top and if you don't have the right connections and power you will get caught, and made an example of. It is only the government that can get away with fraud and corruption.
