Richard (Rick) Lynn Scott:- Texas License Date:11/06/1978 - Bar Card Number 17909700
was a partner with Johnson & Swanson (established in 1970) Rick Scott’s Dallas, Tx clients list included Tom Hicks and Scott became partner’s with Hicks, Richard Rainwater and George W. Bush in the Texas Rangers. Representing the Texas Bass Brothers, Rainwater became powerfully famous for his 1984 take over of Disney and his hiring of Michael Eisner as Disney CEO.[Eisner bought ABC, added it to the Disney holdings and Disney became the most powerful media center in the world under Eisner.] Rainwater along with Rick Scott and Jeb Bush was able to pick up the pieces of the South Florida HMO organizations of Miguel Recarey, Jr.(International Medical Centers) and their already organized Medicare Fraud establishment. In 1987 when Recarey fled the US under federal indictment Jeb Bush was able to flip the IMC assets to Humana along with $30 million in Medicare Fraud monthly cash cow dollars – Humana packaged IMC into Galen Hospitals which was then taken over by Rick Scott and Rainwater with Jeb and family secret partners. Originally named Columbia Scott and group added HCA from Senator Bill Frist and brother Tommy of Nashville to become Columbia/ HCA. In 1997 when Columbia/ HCA come under investigation for the largest Medicare Fraud case in US history (second only to Jeb and Recarey’s first Medicare Fraud scheme of 1987) Rick Scott fled Columbia/ HCA with $300 million of get away dollars after taking the fifth seventy-five times- Jeb Bush and partners then merged Columbia/ HCA into Tenet Healthcare –another already ongoing Medicare Fraud overbilling and unnecessary operations and procedures controlled by the Bush family. In May 2007 after officially leaving the governor’s office Jeb Bush become the only director of Tenet Healthcare based from their Dallas Bush family headquarters.
Tenet, continues to commit Medicare Fraud and illegal billings and failure to file proper income tax returns – just like the organized criminal empire it is.
So, when Rick Scott signed in to law a “bill requiring ultra sound” he was just increasing the cash flow for the Scott-Bush and friends hospitals and medical facilities they still own and hold in what he calls a blind trust. Maybe we should see if that Blind Trust is being held by the Bush family Northern Trust conglomerates that George W. said he did not know who owned it – but Barack Obama knows how to find The Northern Trust – they financed his Chicago home for him.
Rainwater’s current holdings also include energy, oil rigs, office buildings and the sumptuous Canyon Ranch resorts. So sprawling are his interests that gamblers can bet in casinos operated by one of his companies or seek treatment for their gambling compulsion at another.
''He is a king maker,'' said J. Thomas Schieffer, who was a partner with Mr. Bush, Rick Scott, Tom Hicks, Rusty Rose and Mr. Rainwater in the Texas Rangers. It’s like magic!
And reality is Richard E. Rainwater has shaped much of Florida politics as well. He made multi-millionaires out of Jeb and George Bush and their partner Rick Scott……….
And he made a multi-millionaire out of Michael Eisner as well……
And let us not forget the GOP money men, business partners and movers and shakers – Mel Sember [Founder of Straight, Inc] and H. Gary (Schwartz) Morse [Villages developer traveling the world on his yacht” The Cracker Bay”] that pull the strings of Jeb Bush, his family including his extended family Rick Scott. And, George (Schwartz) Soros – who handles the Democrat side of the string pulling for the Council on Foreign Relations.

People are ignorant if they choose to vote for Scott or Crist. They've both been proven to be criminals. Insanity is choosing to do the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

YES on 1: save our lakes, forests, and springs.
YES on 2: Personal freedom, compassion, Lower government expenditure.
NO on 3: a trick by the political party in power to cement their advantage and keep those pesky voters out of things. HE!L NO.

Yea! Rick Scott "always seems busy trying to bring new businesses to Florida" alright. But check out who owns those businesses. Many of them have direct ties to Rick Scott and his partners the Bush family both with their blind trusts BS.

Corrections, Corp of America and the Geo Group are privatizing the state prisons and as many county jails as their local mobsters in each county can pull off.

Check out who owns all their for profit charter school companies. Former unindicted speaker Ray Sansom is VP of the Rader Group. Former Ambassador to Omen Gary Grappo is in ownership of many of their Muslim schools along with their Gulen Muslim charter school friend.

Sure Prick Scott is doing wonderful and has been doing wonderful since he come to Miami with his coach and partner Richard Rainwater in October 1987 to take over Jeb and his partner Miguel Recarey's International Medical Centers (Financed by Tampa-Miami mob boss Santo Trafficante, Jr) ongoing Medicare Fraud which the government had handed over to Humana with a $30 MILLION per month Medicare cash cow and they had renamed it Galen Hospitals. Galen, Gulen, keep it simple so they can remember the name,

Incidentally, the name COLUMBIA for which Rick Scott and Richard Rainwater chose to call their new hospital chain come from the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City (Tampa, Fl) which was the favorite restaurant of Mr. Trafficante and his "office" so to speak. The HCA was added later as TN Senator Bill Frist and his brother Tommy Frist merged their HCA with Jeb Bush , Scott, Rainwater and the gang. In 1997 after Scott was handed a deal not to go to jail or flee the US under indictment like Recarey before him along with $300 MILLION in get away Scott kept his stock in Columbia/ HCA. In 1997 "they" merged Columbia/ HCA with Tenet Healthcare (another Bush owned Medicare Fraud scheme) In 2007 Jeb Bush become the sole director of Tenet from their Dallas, Tx Bush Dynasty frauds are us office building.

No fans tonight for Charlie Crist! I hate that Rick Scott made billions off of Medicare. Why would you vote for someone who screwed YOU? Medicare is for the people of America......not for Rick Scott's pockets. Sure Charlie's dad was a doc. At least he did not get rich off of Medicare! Scott was born poor........and he made his money off of the taxpayers. Medicare is for US! Just sayin'

Lake County State Senator Alan Hays stands against Common Core to the local School Board, but supports Rick Scott and CC Jeb Bush - who instigated the invention of CC along with Bill Gates and the Republican Governor's Association. Sorry Senator Hays loving Scott and Jeb Bush and hating their Common Core is known as an oxy-moron - so even though we can see from your speech you are speaking from your heart about common core which is New World Order homo and Muslim loaded programming for America's youth - you still to grow the "nads" to stand up to your Florida Republican leader and mob boss Jeb Bush, the man who started all this bull schet and Florida corruption out the ying yang!

It is with the utmost respect for both you and your profession that I write this letter. &#9644; and I did his math homework this week together. We attempted to do it using the “new” way and after much frustration, I did not understand how to do it or why it would be done this way. I am a product of the Lake County school system and I have a college education. I am entrusted by my company to supervise employees throughout the entire state of Florida and yet I am struggling with second grade math. Furthermore, as a supervisor, I would not hire anyone that approaches math in this fashion.
A 7-year-old child should not be spending more than an hour trying to figure out and complete one sheet of math.
&#9644; did complete his homework using the “old’ way. He will continue to do it this way because we don’t subscribe to the Common Core method in our home; to put it quite simply; it’s garbage. I refuse to let my child be used as a lab rat on curriculum that has not been tested or proven. My son will not be a social experiment.
And now, instead of concentrating solely on school lessons this week, &#9644; has learned another lesson – standing up for what’s right. That is my reasoning behind this decision and this letter. I was raised to stand up for what I believe in and do what I can to change something that’s unjust and&#9644;is being raised the same way.
Sen. Alan Hays spoke to the (LAKE COUNTY SCHOOL) Board on Monday and not only voiced his concerns, but admitted he was wrong and I commend him for that. To borrow his words,“Common Core is not our best effort and we must abandon it at the earliest possible date. Every day we delay we are putting our students behind.” If our local, state and federal government won’t put a stop to it, then I will, at least in our home. I expect &#9644;&#9644; to be given full credit for every question he answers correctly regardless of the method he used to arrive there. Every night I hear horror stories on social media of our Lake County children struggling, believing they are “unteachable,” stupid and worthless. I refuse to allow my child to feel this way, especially when he is successful when he uses tried and true methods and arrives at the correct answer.
Parent involvement is a huge indicator of success and it baffles me why anyone or any method would strive to systematically alienate parents from being able to help their children.
I certainly don’t want to make an already difficult job more difficult, &#9644;, but ultimately I owe it to my son to do what’s best for him and allowing Common Core/Florida State Standards in our home isn’t it.

Parental involvement is very important. My honor student granddaughter came home crying about Common Core causing her to get a B on her math test. That was traumatic to a girl that consistantly is on the Principals Honor Roll. They had her studying math in the Summer to try to keep up. Summer should be a break, but to stay on top you have to study in the Summer. She was in the Battle of the Books for her school this year at the schools battling it out for first place. It is frustrating seeing her try so hard to make good grades. A "B" is fine I told her. Some schools are opting out of Common Core I hear. It puts to much stress on the child and the parents who really care about their childrens grades.

Yes Rick Scott should have gone to prison in 1995 for life! But he was protected by the establishment. Remember, "they" try to credit Rick Scott with founding Columbia/ HCA, but that is another lie. Since 1978 Rick Scott was a Bush family Dallas, Tx lawyer specializing in mergers and acquisitions. Jeb Bush created the Medicare Fraud with his phone calls to HHS when Poppy was VP. Jeb's Cuban mob partner Miguel Recarey, Jr.(who was financed by Tampa born mob boss Santo Trafficante, Jr.) was warned to flee the US before an indictment was released - Jeb and Poppy Bush even arranged Recarey a major IRS refund to flee with. Then they relocated their Texas lawyer Rick Scott and Richard Rainwater (who in 1984 on behalf of their buddies the Bass Brothers had leveraged out Disney and hired Michael Eisner who then brought ABC into the disney foal.) It was Richard Rainwater who arranged for George W. Bush, Rick Scott, Tom Hicks and all their orgainzed criminal friends to buy the Texas Rangers.

The Bush family kept their Texas lawyer Rick Scott out of prison. They merged Columbia/ HCA into Tenet Healthcare in 1997 and they all still own the remnants of the greatest Medicare Fraud ever reported in US history now called Tenet and that fraud continues under that criminal empire to this day.

No one will ever put a Bush in jail - they tried in Miami on December 31, 1994 when George Prescott Bush (Jeb's son soon to be incarnated as GTexas Land Commissioner) when he broke into the home of his X-girlfriend - the daught of one Murray Cohen. The Bush dynasty is too big to fail - they are the movers and shakers of the New World Order - they alone decide when something happens and when it does not

Atlanta Division – Direct from FBI website:
U.S. Department of Justice April 10, 2012 -Office of Public Affairs
Dallas-Based Tenet Healthcare Pays More Than $42 Million to Settle Allegations of Improperly Billing Medicare
Settlement Related to Company’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities
WASHINGTON—Tenet Healthcare Corporation has agreed to pay the United States $42.75 million to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by overbilling the federal Medicare program, the Justice Department announced today.
The settlement resolves allegations pertaining to the various inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) that Dallas-based Tenet has owned and operated throughout the country. IRFs are designed for patients who need an intense rehabilitation program that requires a multidisciplinary, coordinated team approach to improve their ability to function. Because the patients treated at these facilities require more intensive rehabilitation therapy and closer medical supervision than is provided in other settings, such as acute care hospitals or skilled nursing facilities, Medicare generally pays IRFs at a higher rate for rehabilitation care than it pays for such care in other settings.
The Justice Department alleged that, between May 15, 2005 and December 31, 2007, Tenet improperly billed Medicare for the treatment of patients at its IRFs when, in fact, these patient stays did not meet the standards to qualify for an IRF admission. Today’s settlement is the United States’ single largest recovery pertaining to inappropriate admissions to IRFs.
“The Department of Justice is committed to protecting the Medicare program against all types of overcharging by health care providers,” said Stuart F. Delery, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Civil Division.“As today’s settlement demonstrates, inpatient rehabilitation facilities will not be permitted to bill Medicare for patients who were not qualified for admission.”
“This settlement demonstrates our office’s continued commitment to protect crucial Medicare dollars from fraud and abuse. Inpatient rehabilitation facilities are expensive, and Medicare dollars should be reserved for patients who need the services—not for hospitals seeking to make money through improper billing,” said Sally Quillian Yates, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.
“Tenet disclosed this matter to my office as required under its corporate integrity agreement (CIA),” said Daniel R. Levinson, Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.“Our CIA reporting provisions have resulted in recovery of millions of taxpayer dollars back into the Medicare program.”
This resolution is part of the government’s emphasis on combating health care fraud and another step for the Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) initiative, which was announced by Attorney General Eric Holder and Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, in May 2009. The partnership between the two departments has focused efforts to reduce and prevent Medicare and Medicaid financial fraud through enhanced cooperation. One of the most powerful tools in that effort is the False Claims Act, which the Justice Department has used to recover more than $6.6 billion since January 2009 in cases involving fraud against federal health care programs. The Justice Department’s total recoveries in False Claims Act cases since January 2009 are over $8.8 billion.
