Every new program introduced by the government comes with a promise to pay for it, all or in part, by eliminating fraud, waste and abuse in current programs. What a scam. This never happens. And if fraud, waste and abuse could be eliminated, why wasn’t it done already? Shouldn’t it be an ongoing process?

Need 200 billion for some part of Obamacare and don’t want to raise taxes? Promise to pay for it by eliminating fraud, waste, and abuse in Medicare. No problem.
