    Write about what happened, and how this doctor is trying to prey on a retiree. Write about how this doctor is conspiring with other hospital staff to defraud a large health insurance provider. Write about how this doctor is lying to his patient to hurry a procedure without time for evaluating alternatives, to make your family member an unwitting accessory to this fraud. Write about how you've already gotten in touch with the legal department of this insurance provider, who happens to share a chain of command with the US Department of Justice.

      "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.

      •  Ha, that might make a funny fake ad. (0+ / 0-)

        Exposing the fraud and intimidation in the AARP magazine would be an easy start. Letting both doctors and patients know that both the policy experts at Medicare/Medicaid and the fraud investigators at the DOJ are each just a phone call away also might help. But sure, why not go one step further!

        Some clip art, dreadful typography and some improbably named speakers are all you need to put together a fake seminar! Take out fake ads promoting a one-day workshop on rushing old people into dubious surgery. For extra credit, see who signs up. But don't cash their checks, because that would be fraud.
