Dear Mr. President,
Yesterday I mentioned to you that we have innumerable problems in this country that need to be addressed, and I’m going to talk about just one of those problems that costs this country over 60 Billion dollars a year… insurance fraud. I say this country because this country is it’s people, and it’s the people that pay for that fraud through high premiums. This is just one scam… you can just imagine how much it is costing this country if you add all the scams together.
I’m not sure if you are aware of a television program called American Greed, but the purpose of the program is to expose fraud, scams, cons and schemes, perpetrated against the American public and our Government. I’ve watched a few episodes, and I want to tell you… it’s positively disgusting to think that people commit these crimes to get rich at the expense of their fellow citizens. You can Google American Greed and watch a few episodes for yourself, but trust me, you won’t be pleased to learn how much this is costing everyone. And of course, the real irony is… the Government and YOU get blamed for most of it.
So here’s the plan… Reward people for catching fraudulent schemes, cons, and scams, yes, reward them with… oh, lets say, $100,000. I’ll tell you, people will be looking at everything with a skeptical eye… they’ll go over every bill with a fine-toothed comb… I know I would. See, here’s the thing… when we’re being robbed we scream like hell, but if we don’t know we’re being robbed, we’re silent. I say, “get the people behind you on this”… go on American Greed and pitch it to the public… What have you got to lose Mr. President? The people already think the Government is in collusion on some of these schemes, so again, what have you got to lose?
