Idiots, Jackasses; and MORE Idiots and Jackasses…

Our government has a history of being run by Idiots and Jackasses. What makes it even worse, is that many of them were dishonest, greedy, self-fullfilling TOLLHEADS! A CrackerJack box full of CrackheadJacks!

What is poor Obama supposed to do with the inheritance of that historical mess anyway? To make matters even worse for Obama is the fact that many of those Idiots, Jackasses, and TOLLHEADS, (Democrat or Republican), are still in their elected offices; including those others still remaining that collect a paycheck from their employer -THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS. flag1Photo Source Unknown

Just WHAT is being done about this Medicare Fraud…

With the FRAUD financial figures that 60 minutes exposed, one can see WHY the health care system is struggling. People have been reporting these billing discrepancies for years now and no one makes any attempt to get to the bottom of the problem. Although I do believe that the health insurance companies have taken serious advantage of the American people, my point is, we need to expose and put a stop to those involved in the fraud going on.

Here is a comment that was forwarded to me:

Annual Medicare Fraud: $60 Billion;
Annual Profits of Top Ten Insurance Companies: $8 billion
As 60 Minutes reported last week, Medicare fraud is rampant and has now replaced the cocaine (ahem) business as the major criminal activity in South Florida. Both 60 Minutes and the Washington Post report that Medicare fraud now costs American taxpayers roughly $60 billion a year. That may sound like a lot of money, but surely it pales next to the extraordinary profits of private insurance companies, right?
Well, let’s see…. Last year, the profits of the ten largest insurance companies in America were just over $8 billion — combined. No single insurance company made even five percent of what Medicare reportedly loses in fraud.

While we’re making comparisons, in its real first ten years (2014-23), the Senate Finance Committee bill would cost $1.7 trillion. At the rate of last year’s profits, the combined ten-year profits of America’s ten largest insurance companies would be $83 billion — five percent of the costs of the Senate Finance Committee bill. Eighty-three billion dollars may not buy you much in comparison with BaucusCare, but — on the bright side — that ten-year tally is somewhat more than what Medicare loses each year in fraud.

So, the next time someone alleges that government-run health care is cheaper because of “lower administrative costs” — a truly preposterous claim on its surface — these numbers would be good ones to have at the ready: $60 billion in annual Medicare fraud, $8 billion in combined annual profits for America’s ten largest insurance companies.

They “Gambled With The 700 Billion Bailout” and Lost…

Taxpayers are paying those “ZOMBIES” to work for the good of the American people. And what did they do?
They have gambled in the stock market, again, in a “LasVegas Gambling Style”. Without the taxpayers knowledge, or approval; The Zombies ran to the gambling table and have lost at least half of the 700 bailout money so far. In fact, it is reported that some stock they bought at a higher 25% cost than it was worth at the time, have been a bad bet to date. Of the 53 bets they made, only 2 have supposedly been good bets, and they were small companies that gave a return, unlike the large conglomerate bets that lost bailout money at the gambling table.

“…Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. describes the cash infusion as “an investment, not an expenditure.”

So far, however, only two of the 53 banks can be considered a good investment.

The AP’s analysis found that only HF Financial Corp. of Sioux Falls, S.D., and First Niagara Financial Group of Lockport, N.Y., would make money for taxpayers if the common stock options were exercised today. According to records filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, both are small banks, far removed from the wheeling and dealing of federally insured giants that ravaged the global economy by making bad bets on subprime mortgages.

The South Dakota bank, for example, has a market value of $54 million, a tiny fraction of the size of JPMorgan Chase, the nation’s largest. The Treasury Department gave $25 million to HF Financial on Nov. 21 in exchange for 25,000 shares of preferred stock and warrants that allow taxpayers to buy 302,000 shares at $12.40 within the next decade. For now, it’s a good deal; the bank’s stock is trading around $13. If the government exercised its option to buy HF stock today, taxpayers would collect $63,500.

More companies would be in the black, but the government used a 20-day stock price average to set the warrant price, meaning it willingly negotiated to pay roughly 25 percent more than the stock was worth on the day it signed the deals on behalf of taxpayers.

Nara Bancorp, created in 1989 to serve Southern California’s growing Korean-American community, borrowed $67 million from taxpayers on Nov. 21, when its stock was trading at $7.50 per share. But the government negotiated the option to buy 1 million shares of Nara common stock at $9.64, higher than its stock is currently trading.

“It’s a complete mistake to think this is a good investment for us,” said Paola Sapienza, a finance associate professor at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, who spearheaded a September protest of the bailout by more than 200 of the nation’s leading economists. “It’s a gamble. It’s like going to Las Vegas.”

In all likelihood, it was a planned out strategic game played at the taxpayers expense. That is what the
700 Billion bailout was all about. It just may not have been realized by the past and present day corrupt culprits that it would have the domino effect that is being experienced as we speak.

The American people need to form their groups, and with prepared grievances and accountability demands; the taxpayers need to email their expectations to Obama. Within these stated group grievances and accountability demands, the people must ask for accountability. Those responsible MUST be flushed out and held legally accountable.
