Puerto Rican Rum will save America!

In 2010 Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIPS were fraudulently billed for more than seventy billion dollars. That means that every taxpayer (that actually pays) in the US is contributing over seven hundred hundred dollars a year to cover the government’s payments to criminal enterprises. Seventy billion dollars is enough to give every homeless person in the US one hundred thousand dollars. Seventy billion dollars is enough to drop a sixteen thousand dollar check into the lap of every welfare recipient. Seventy billion dollars is enough to give each active and reserve US service member a two thousand dollar a month bonus. Seventy billion dollars is enough to hire one million people to audit claims for fraud (For 40k a year) and still save thirty billion dollars. That’s also the amount of money that is being added to the deficit every year thanks to the new fiscal cliff law that was pushed through and signed into law without being read. Gotta love politics. I wonder how many people will benefit from Hollywood tax breaks, wind turbines, or Puerto Rican Rum.
