Newsflash: To those who use Medicare.

It isn't your personal plaything.
The government paid more than $1 billion in questionable Medicare claims for medical supplies that showed little relation to a patient's condition, including blood glucose strips for sexual impotence and special diabetic shoes for leg amputees, congressional investigators say.
Lovely. I say that if we spend $10 million in salary money to hire people to investigate claims to ensure that fraud is reduced by more than 50%, that would be money well spent. That money should be enough to hire about 150 people, and if their lone job is to perform audits ... that should do the trick.
