    "Do away with Medicare/aid. With the money saved, people might be able to afford to stay home and care for their sick loved ones or hire private nurses."

    How exactly does a person "save" personal income money when she is not working while caring for a sick relative? Last I checked, 0% of 0 is... 0. You can't live on a $0 income. Folks scream about having people on public assistance, but then these same people are just as angry about providing support services that enable folks to go to work.

    And poor people rely on these services. Even if they were somehow, miraculously able to work while providing their own home care, they could certainly not afford a private nurse without it costing their entire paycheck.

    This dude bought a fridge with a tv in it the day they were made available. He never left the house, unless told.

    Neither person ever worked an honest day in their life.

    Cheating people out of money is a full time job.

    No photos of the perps?

    whatelse has correctly identified the solution. Do away with Medicare/aid. With the money saved, people might be able to afford to stay home and care for their sick loved ones or hire private nurses.

    How the high and mighty have fallen...

    I seriously doubt that "our" money will ever be fully repaid.

    People that take advantage of elderly/disabled either directly or indirectly should not see light of day again. (The government does it everyday)

    I do really wish we would do away with the words rep/dems. Everyone uses it to much for an excuse for an answer as to why something happen or didn't happen.

    "Nothing from the Republicans, or The News Media"

    Unfortunately, many of the lifer Republicans are not very different from the lifer Democrats. As with any organization, new blood that want to change things are corralled as quickly as possible and told to toe the line. In the meantime, those working, are just being abused by the Government and the so-called poor.

    Really, seven years this guy did not pay the IRS? Fraud is so rampant because it is just to easy to scam the huge Federal System. The IRS probably more than any other agency tries to uncover tax cheats yet these people did not pay up for seven years apparently going undetected for some number of years. Fraud with Medicaid is rampant and will continue. The only real solution is to get rid of Medicaid and Medicare for that matter. These are insurance programs that provide lousy coverage and are enormously expensive. I wish I could run an insurance scam where I collected a percentage of people's incomes and did not have to provide anything in return unless they made it to age 65 and then filed a claim. The best part at 65 I would get to charge them a whole new set of premiums, again partially income based. That is a much bigger scam then these folks ran.

    4Strikes, You Can't Stand Thieves, Than Why do we Keep putting the Same People Back into Office.
    This Last Election we had Charlie Rangel who for year had Places in some Island that he Rentd out and Never paid HIS TAXES on it, What happened to Him , HE GOT RE-ELECTED.
    Look at Obama, Just gave BILLIONS of DOLLARS to his Friends and than they Went Bankrupt, Than he goes around Telling how he wants to Punish the RICH and Than he has his Meeting with them RAISING MONEY.
    Remember one thing , When Obama and The Democrats Taxes the Rich, They Pass it on down to US when we BUY their GOODS and SERVICES.
    Liberals are so Blinded By Hate they can't see the Tip of their Nose.
    Nothing from the Republicans, or The News Media.
    Were A Lost Nation

    NC Red Shirt...they didn't steal it from the government, they stole it from you and I.

    Not bad though...steal millions and only get 40 months. I guess crime DOES pay.

  • Rebelyell55 Apr 11, 2013

    I'm like Red shirt, just wondering how much did they get away with? Drop in the bucket compared to others I bet.

  • Spock Apr 11, 2013

    Hmmmm... kind of makes you wonder why the pleaded guilty. My first thought is that the $3-million they are ordered to repay is just a drop in the bucket of the actual amounts that they stole from OUR government.

  • ICTrue Apr 11, 2013

    Hopefully they'll be paying for the rest of their lives...I can't stand thieves.
