    Wow! They're claiming medicare fraud. I hope the government follows up on this with an investigation. I hate medicare fraud but I sense its all too common in our weak beleaguered system.

    If they could weed out the fraud from Medicare and cancel the $942 Billion F-35 Fighter Jet program, maybe we could take care of our senior citizens without bankrupting the nation. We don't have enough bombers already?

    What about all the massive overcharging going on by hospitals and doctors.I estimate it far exceeds anything considered fraud.
