We also have immigration law that isn't enforced. What makes them think that anyone in the Government is actually capable of DOING SOMETHING about Medicare Fraud? These Legislators simply have no clue about following through with enforcement on anything. Bunch of pencil pushers.

If you believe government to be completely incompetent then why aren't you running for office?

Because, unlike most of the current politicians, many of us actually recognize that we don't qualify to run for office or do not have the necessary skills, like "deal making" and "lying" to succeed in the present atmosphere. However, that is not to say that since WE pay the bills with our tax money, we should remain silent when obvious changes are needed. All we can do is let our voices be heard and vote.
