An article from

Meanwell has sent you the following story:

Yeah, Obama and the Democrats want us to bet the house on Medicare when it's already full of corruption. Can you imagine how much waste and fraud there will be once that gang destroys free enterprise, and controls everyone's healthcare? The big question will be: what comes after a trillion???

Sweep nets Medicare fraud suspects in Miami, Detroit, New York

Federal agents Tuesday arrested about 30 doctors, nurses and healthcare operators in Miami, Detroit and New York on charges of submitting more than $61 million in bogus bills to the taxpayer-funded Medicare program.

Among those arrested in South Florida: Dr. Fred E. Dweck of Hollywood, who was the medical director for a Miami healthcare clinic, Courtesy Medical Group.

Dweck, 74, arrested at his home early Tuesday by FBI and Health and Human Services agents, is accused of accepting bribes in exchange for writing prescriptions for about 1,300 homebound patients who didn't need costly diabetic, physical therapy and other services billed to Medicare, according to federal authorities. The total billing to Medicare: almost $41 million between 2006 and 2009. The federal healthcare program paid out nearly $24 million.
