We know that Medicare fraud is huge problem and cost taxpayers millions every year. Obama said he was going to crack down on fraud, but here is a US Senator running interference for fraud. I would love to know where Menendez is keeping the kickback money. Maybe that is what the trips to the Dom. Rep. were for?
