  1. This is why we can’t afford socialized medicine. There are probably hundreds of schemes going on like this. Medicare paid to have my grandmother’s gallbladder removed four times.

    • My grandmother was very old and died years ago. We didn’t find out about the scams until after she had died. We found out about it when someone was going through her medical statements and seen where test on her gallbladder was done. Knowing she had it removed thirty years ago it was looked into and alot of interesting things was found. I’m not a kid and I know alot of people that are on Medicare, I can bet the farm that half the tax money being paid into Medicare is waisted. This is way I appose socialized medicine it will just line the pockets of the dishonest.

  2. NBC.. I Hope You report the findings of the Abuse of Power by the Obama Administration to Spy on American Citizens…ie Carter Page FISA documents and texts.. Just a heads Up NBC… Fruit of the Poisonous Tree will apply, which means the entire Mueller Investigation will become Null and Void….25+ Million spent on a Bogus Investigation… NBC…let your viewers know about Glenn Simpson and his 2007 article about Russian Collusion and how similar it is to the Fake Dossiers…Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, Natalia Veselnitskaya, All worked for or was paid by Fusion GPS, Founder of Fusion GPS is Glenn Simpson who was paid by Clinton… Your viewers probably never heard of Cody Shearer who also was paid by Clinton to write his own Unverified Dossier that was hand delivered to the FBI…do your viewers know that Bruce Ohr of the DOJ and Nellie Ohr met with Christopher Steele the day before Cross Fire Hurricane…? I am sure that your viewers have Never read Lisa Pages Sworn Testimony stating that the FBI had No Evidence of Collusion or Obstruction at the time Mueller was appointed by Rosenstein. The FBI said there was No Crime, so why was Mueller appointed…? Abuse of Power is an Unlawful act.
