Would You Buy a Used Car from These Guys?


The typical household budget in America today is collapsing under the weight of declining property values, rampant unemployment, and inflationary pressures created by a weak dollar.  As a result, many Americans are faced with the grim reality that their individual lifestyles must change or they, like our federal government, will be unable to pay their obligations at some point in the very near future.


As our legislators in Washington debate increasing the nation’s $14+ trillion debt limit so that they can continue printing money that is worth progressively less to pay creditors, government workers, and beneficiaries of entitlement and social welfare programs, perhaps they should consider how this money is being spent.  Below is a video clip from Project Veritas, an organization dedicated to investigating and exposing “corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.”  In the video, two purported Russian immigrant drug dealers, or as they refer to themselves – “Bob Marley Pharmaceuticals” dealers, seek public assistance via various federally-funded programs at a Medicaid office in Ohio.  The sadly laughable responses of the public employees in the video vividly demonstrate the enormous potential for waste and fraud in these publicly-funded programs.


 


For anyone who has ever had the occasion to deal with government agencies and their employees, the video above is hardly shocking.  Drug dealing, money laundering, child prostitution, and income tax evasion are but a few of the crimes of which the government workers secretly filmed are made aware.  Yet, there is no indication that any of the officials in the video are alarmed, or even surprised by what they are being told.  Nor, in the aftermath of the interview was any attempt made to alert law enforcement to any of these criminal activities.  One wonders how often public employees across the country counsel individuals to defraud the government and its taxpayers.  And, while you might surmise that this is an isolated incident, take a look at the following video in which a substantially-similar story is told at a Medicaid office in Virginia, with similar results.
