Medicare Fraud

I should get a new job defrauding Medicare.

A Raleigh man who federal investigators say was at the center of an
operation that pocketed more than $12 million from false Medicare claims pleaded
guilty Tuesday to fraud.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector
General reported in May that more than 10 percent of the $920 million Medicare
paid in 2005 for powered wheelchairs had been misspent.

That still leaves at least $80 million unaccounted for. I want a slice of that pie.
