  •  Scott's a bastard who should have been indicted. (7+ / 0-)

    The crimes of his former company involved illegalities involving Medicare and Medicaid.

    Here's a link to info about the FBI agent who recommended his indictment.

    Here's a link to more information re: the bastard who currently occupies the Governor's Mansion in my home state.

    Here's a quotation from the politifact info:

    In 1997, federal authorities went public with a massive multipronged investigation into Columbia/HCA and whether it was bilking state and federal health care programs, including Medicare and Medicaid.

    Specifically, authorities were investigating whether the hospital chain ordered unnecessary lab work and billed Medicare and Medicaid for the cost, whether it attached false diagnosis codes to patient records in order to increase reimbursement to the hospitals and whether it billed the government for home health care visits for patients who did not qualify to receive them.

    So none of this is a surprise. It's not like Rick Scott is in favor of Medicare or Medicaid, except as a kind of all-you-can-eat buffet for his private-sector companies.

    Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in.
