President Trump is draining the “medical swamp.” The U.S. health care system is plagued by rampant fraud, abuse and profiteering carried out by dishonest doctors and pharmacists. In working to combat the rampant fraud, the DOJ has announced an unprecedented crackdown on medical fraud, charging over 600 people with criminal activities that involved over $2 billion medical fraud.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered prepared remarks, saying, “This year we are charging 601 people, including 76 doctors, 23 pharmacists, 19 nurses, and other medical personnel with more than $2 billion in medical fraud. In this latest operation, with the help of our fabulous partners at HHS, we have charged another 162 people—including 32 doctors—with the illegal distribution of opioids. This is the most doctors, the most medical personnel, and the most fraud that the Department of Justice has ever taken on in any single law enforcement action. This is the most defendants we’ve ever charged with health care fraud. It’s also the most opioid-related fraud defendants we’ve ever charged in a single enforcement action.”
One doctor, explained Sessions, defrauded Medicare of over $112 million, “distributing 2.2 million unnecessary doses of drugs like oxycodone and fentanyl.” (See Opioids.news for more coverage of opioid drugs. Another site launching soon is BadDoctors.news.)
Yet more proof that the failed pharma-central health care system is a massive criminal drug racket
This massive sweep of criminal charges shows that, in many ways, the U.S. health care system is a massive criminal drug racket run by criminal doctors and drug companies who all profit from the mass poisoning of the American people. The fact that 76 doctors and 23 pharmacists are named in these indictments is further proof that many so-called “health care” professionals are nothing but glorified drug dealers.
“We are sending a clear message to criminals across the country,” added Sessions. “[W]e will find you. We will bring you to justice. And you will pay a very high price for what you have done.”
#MAGA has arrived on the health care scene, and the DOJ is mean as a wolverine when it comes to healthcare fraud.
Now, if we could only get Sessions to issue 600+ indictments for the Clinton Foundation racketeering fraud and other deep state swamp creatures, then we’d really be making progress in this country.
It’s also time for Sessions to join the 21st century and de-list cannabis from being a Schedule I drug.
