Michelle, "pay and chase" is the normal business on SS, Medicare, and Medicaid. Thats the root of the majority of fraud. That seems to be normal business practice of the government. After all its not their money.
I appreciate you and all the other writers pointing out what is obviously poor choices in our government, but what do you do about it? Seems to me that one of the qualifications of being elected is that they become a eunuch, completely forgetting anything they ran for. This is starting to be a very poor situation, and quite frankly i see no way out.
