    advertising on tv and the web that entice Medicare and Medicaid recipients (often with the promise of a free product) to buy their health care product that they will help the youl charge Medicare and Medicaid for (see catheters, diabetes, wheelchairs, etc.).  "It will be at NO cost to you"!

    These are the middle-men who are sucking at the government teat--and the companies Obama is going after  in cutting waste, fraud and abuse.

    Yet all we hear from the GOP is that he's cutting beneficiaries.  

    I was able to give one of these companies a piece of my mind the other day (the morning after the first debate, so you know how I was feeling)--because apparently someone in my house filled out a "questionnaire" regarding his medical needs in order to get a free iPod. Lol.
