We have known for a long time that there are rampant problems throughout our country’s healthcare system. But maybe we didn’t see just how far down it went. President Donald Trump has been doing everything he can to try to fix the problem where it begins, but it is easier said than done. There are so many problems caused by Obamacare that it is hard to know where to start. Americans are hurting under Obamacare and know there are reports of massive fraud.
This fraud, reported by ABC News, goes down from doctors, nurses and even pharmacists. This fraud just outlines an even bigger problem we have as a nation. Greed has started to overrun people’s minds and this is a fantastic example of that. These people care more about big money than they do the patients they are supposed to be helping. With the help of the Trump administration, Jeff Sessions was able to bring this fraud down once and for all. And he is on the lookout for more.
Six doctors from Michigan are thought to have been the head of this thing. But it runs all the way to a rehab clinic in Florida. They gave patients incentives to come to their clinic like gift cards and trips to strip clubs. The doctors gave out massive amounts of opioids. This caused addicts to get even worse, with people lining up in the emergency room for more. Something has to be done to fix this problem.
President Trump has promised a massive overhaul on the way our healthcare system works. It is obvious that our doctors have a lot to work on and it is sad that people like this give honest Americans a bad name. Surprisingly, we caught this at a pretty good time. Usually things like this take a very long time to crack, so we should be proud of our justice department for getting to the bottom of this.
