Federal Subsidies Spur Massive Fraud | Cato @ Liberty

One of the problems with federal hand-out programs is that individuals take advantage of them and scam artists outright loot them. You see this in programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, school lunches, earned income tax credits, housing aid, student loans, and farm subsidies.Daily Beast writer Evan Wright has an appalling story of Christopher Bathum, who looted addiction-treatment funds made available by the Obamacare law. The law required addiction-treatment funding by Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance companies.

Sorry but all Gooferment “handouts” have “Unintended Consequences”.

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.

Argh!
