Amazing how each party can point their finger at the other and lay all blame at their feet. Both parties are guilty for the shape this country is in. We have elected and re-elected individuals to public office that have only their greedy interest at heart. Every official and their family should have all of their financial interests investigated and where fraud can be proven they should be put in jail. Next the fraud laws should be changed. Minimum penalty should be all the money stolen should be returned PLUS fines and jail. Ex. A Dr. X has defrauded medicare of $900,000 last year, he is convicted, jail for l year and a $30,000 fine. He gets to keep $870,000. Shame, shame, shame.
