Medicare Giveaways!

No, not to the seniors enrolled in Medicare, silly! To the private insurance companies. Yet another GAO report has found yet another contracting scam that BushCo is ignoring.

Private insurance companies participating in Medicarehave been allowed to keep tens of millions of dollars that should havegone to consumers, and the Bush administration did not properly auditthe companies or try to recover money paid in error, Congressionalinvestigators say in a new report.

What’s remarkable about this though, is it is at least the third incidence where–when faced with accounting improprieties from a corporation working with the government–the Bush Administration refuses to ask for the money back.

    It’s all to drain the treasury dry and to eventually tell us there just isn’t any money left and we’re going to have to sacrifice Social Security.

Let’s stick to everyone but the rich of course!!!!!! Yeah that reporter was right when he said the ’tunneling out of America’…..their tunneling right under our feet for our blood….!

    The Bush Toolbox- revamping the entire administration and governance of American society using the only tool in the box–a huge hammer, good for screwing up everything in sight, ubiquitously retuning in favor of socialized corporatocracy. If it ain’t broken–say it is and fix it anyway. What a tool!
