New York!

Medicaid Fraud!

Starts at the top!

Non-Profits sure do pay well...

"The Committee has also uncovered
excessive salaries being paid to executives of
nonprofit institutions that are nearly completely
financed by Medicaid. A simple analysis conducted by the Committee found that at least 15 of these executives received yearly compensation exceeding $500,000 and at least 100 others received
yearly compensation exceeding $200,000."

Poor helpless Americans, crappy ethics, and the gimmedats!

Fraud!!!!

"...David Armor and Sonia Sousa of George Mason University have found that nearly 80 percent of the non-disabled elderly population on Medicaid is above
the poverty line, and about half of this population is
over 200 percent of the poverty line..."

Gimmedats come in all shapes and incomes...

"As a long-time employee of the local Medicaid office, I have had the opportunity
to witness the diversion of applicants’ significant resources in order to obtain Medicaid coverage. It is not at all unusual to encounter individuals and couples with resources [beyond exempt resources] exceeding $500,000, some with over $1 million. There is no attempt to hide that this money exists; there is no need. There are various legal means to prevent those funds from being used to pay for the applicant’s nursing home care. Wealthy applicants for Medicaid’s nursing home coverage consider that benefit to be their right, regardless of their ability to pay themselves.
...
[I]ndividuals with resources above and beyond the level prescribed by law should not be allowed to fund their children’s inheritance while the taxpayers fund their nursing home care. I strongly believe that this is not a partisan issue. I also believe in the merits of the Medicaid program, but feel just as deeply that these issues regarding resource diversion need to be addressed."

This is where you and a diminishing numbers of liberals who also think like you miss the boat completely.
No one wants Obama to make choices for us.
His choices cost a lot more and force us to pay for things we neither want or need.
And he can't stop lying to us - about everything.
It's not that hard to understand really.
People who make bad choices never want to pay the piper when confronted with the price of their bad judgment. I would rather Obama make choices for you now than having the tax payer pick up the tab for your medical needs later because you had lousy insurance.

Slackers are far worse than those who desire health insurance but can't afford it. I have absolutely no sympathy for those who purchased lousy insurance AFTER the ACA was passed believing they could circumvent the law. NONE.

Progressive Gubbymint in action!

Living like kings!!!

"The Committee has found that federal taxpayers
have subsidized lavish lifestyles for many
executives in organizations that receive almost all of their funding through Medicaid. The Committee’s oversight work in this area was informed by an August 2011 New York Time article that exposed how top executives at the Young Adult Institute (YAI)–
a nonprofit that runs group homes for the developmentally disabled–used Medicaid funds to lease luxury cars,to paytuition bills and living expenses for their children, and to reward themselves with generous compensation packages.
53 In fact, four executives at the YAI(Phillip Levy, Joel Levy, Tom Dern, and Stephen Freeman) each
received compensati on in excess of $1 million in 2008, with money derived almost entirely from Medicaid."

It Wasn’t Broke, But Obama Fixed It Anyway

Bending to pressure, Obama announced a patch to health-care reform that will avoid more cancelled plans. But the plans were cancelled for a reason.

Most of the “plans” cancelled by insurers were junk—plans that gave peace of mind to consumers, but wouldn’t help them in the case of an emergency. They shouldn’t have been sold in the first place. And indeed, as Obama noted, part of the reason for health-care reform was that insurers were refusing to cover care for the millions of Americans who purchased these plans. Under the Affordable Care Act, this can no longer happen.
