Feds break up $1.2 billion Medicare scam that peddled unneeded braces to seniors

The Justice Department announced charges Tuesday against 24 people across the U.S., including doctors accused of writing bogus prescriptions for unneeded back, shoulder, wrist and knee braces. Others charged included owners of call centers, telemedicine firms and medical equipment companies.

These people have been calling me at least once a day for weeks. They keep changing numbers and the person recording the message, but as soon as I heard: “Don’t hang up”, I hung up.

They should put them all in as many of their braces as are possible, take them 10 miles out in Gulf, and throw them overboard. 😡

I have to answer my phone as it could be a tenant with a flood in an apartment. Tenants change numbers frequently as they lose phones, borrow phones, or change carriers for a better price. I’m too old to have to put up with this crap which is why I’m on the “Do not call” list.

Still Making Us Cringe

This is my Congresscritter: Matt Gaetz says Trans rights would mean that Trump could be first female POTUS. This might even top the agitprop that same-sex marriage would mean people could marry their pets.

UK Still Headed For The BREXIT Cliff

Parliament Speaker John Bercow, wearing a relatively conservative tie, offered up the four plans that looked to be the most likely to pass, but MPs failed to back any of the proposals again. One of them only lost by three votes, so there may be another attempt, and Prime Minister May will probably want to try her proposal again, but it isn’t looking good.

They should give up on BREXIT, hold a binding referendum on the various plans, or call a general election to see if there is a way forward. After months it is obvious that no one has figured out how to do this. Divorce isn’t easy…
