While Washington refuses to deal honestly with its spending addiction, one young man is out there exposing government corruption and outright lawbreaking that has contributed to the $14-plus trillion debt.
In a story The Daily Caller broke about the latest of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas sting videos, we see firsthand that the federal government’s spending-driven Leviathan of so-called social programs is corrupt and lawbreaking.
We have one young man, James O’Keefe with his Project Veritas, doing more than the president, Congress, and our vast overbloated bureaucracy have done to expose the waste, fraud, and abuse that takes place daily with our tax dollars.
Every American should be outraged that no government audit or oversight exposed this incompetence, misconduct, and lawbreaking. Instead, it took O’Keefe and the citizen journalists of Project Veritas to document this vast network of parasites on the American taxpayer.
Time and again establishment politicians have promised that they will achieve budget savings by ending waste, fraud, and abuse. These "savings" never appear.
I encourage every taxpayer to view the videos exposing the giveaway of taxpayer dollars going on in the Ohio Medicaid program at http://theprojectveritas.com.
Does anyone seriously doubt that a significant part of our spending, debt, and deficit crisis is caused by a corrupt culture that encourages government employees to measure their success by the number of taxpayer dollars they give away?
Just how much of our $14 trillion debt is the result of lawbreaking by government and its cronies?”
The citizen journalists of O’Keefe’s Project Veritas have uncovered widespread Medicaid fraud in state offices across the country.
The first investigation released focuses on four Medicaid offices in Ohio. The video released today begins with a report from the Columbus Dispatch that says it costs Ohio taxpayers $15.4 billion per year to run the Medicaid program — or $29,000 per minute.
The undercover reporters intimate that they are drug dealers, drive expensive cars, and are not U.S citizens. At no time did the case workers ask the reporters to leave.
Even though the reporters admit to making their living through drug dealing or facilitating child prostitution, the case workers never called the police, Child Protective Services, or the Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In fact, the case workers appear eager to assist the reporters in filling out the necessary Medicaid paperwork.
Meanwhile, the Washington political establishment and its lapdog press corps have their heads in the sand about the real problem behind having bumped up against the debt ceiling — again.
