Nemesys’ allusion to Medicare fraud as a Guv’mint corruption symptom misses the point.
The fraud wasn’t IN Guv’mint, it was PRIVATE criminals taking advantage of a largely UNregulated industry, that a Single-Payer (call it Medicare-for-All) would have a chance of bringing under control, when put together with proper auditing.
One of the people my wife worked with, just after she left that section, defrauded (a Huge Aerospace Company) of some $12 Million, once she realized the auditing was going away. No Guv’mint involved a’tall there (except for being the Customer), and she might even be out by now.
