    Who the hell is in charge of such things? Isn't there any oversight? This is CONGRESS! You know, the ones in charge of our money, and how it's spent. Did Paul associate any Congressional names with the approval of these expenditures? Why not?

    Before he retired the good Senator from Oklahoma Tom Coburn published his yearly report on government waste. Glad to see Senator Paul take up where he left off.

    $48 billion in improper Medicare payments
    And that's only after what, 5 or 6 years of Medicare?

    Why? What good has it accomplished?
    This message has been hidden because CNN is on your ignore list.


    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
    It is difficult only for the others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.

    Prior fiscal year.

    FY 2011 reflects the same amount.

    FY 2017 is only $17B , iirc.
