Written by Bethany Blankley – Watchdog.org/bladderbuzz

A watchdog group estimates recent audit of fraudulent Medicaid payments totaling nearly $2 billion “is really closer to $60 billion.”

A recent audit of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reveals that it directed $2.6 billion worth of taxpayer money toward fraudulent and/or mismanaged Medicaid claims over a period of five years. More than half – $1.6 billion – remains uncollected to cover the agency’s losses.

“In a way, this is a good news, bad news story,” Truth in Accounting’s Director of Research, Bill Bergman, told Watchdog.org. “The good news is that they found the bad news. The bad news is that the dollar amount for the bad

Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania Guest Post: Wolf’s Latest Tax Grab

By, Lowman S. Henry Chairman & CEO of the Lincoln Institute and host of the weekly Lincoln Radio Journal

Pennsylvania motorists already pay one of the highest state gasoline taxes in the nation thanks to what was effectively a 30-cent per gallon tax hike during the Tom Corbett Administration. Now, a new multi-state compact advocated by radical environment interests threatens to add to that tax burden.

As with most policies pushed by the Left, this one has a lofty sounding name, it is called the Transportation and Climate Initiative. Its goal is to ratchet up the war on carbon-based fuels by setting new goals for the reduction of their use. And, of course, there is

When then-candidate Donald Trump surprised many observers by winning Pennsylvania in the 2016 election, some ascribed the victory to his relentless campaigning in support of the state’s traditional energy sector, particularly coal and natural gas.

In that campaign and his later decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement, many saw the president taking the side of the energy sector against efforts to reduce greenhouse gas

By Bethany Blankley /WJ

About 19 million public employees cost taxpayers nearly $1 trillion annually.

That’s according to OpenTheBooks.com, which publishes the salaries of public employees from every level of U.S. government. The online database is free and accessible to the public.

“Public service is supposed to be about serving the people,” Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of OpenTheBooks.com, said. “However, the good intentions of America’s 19 million public employees come at a very high price for the people – nearly $1 trillion. In many cases, taxpayers generously fund these employee salaries.”

OpenTheBooks.com, one of the largest private databases of government spending, posts “every dime, online” of local, state, and federal government spending in the U.S. that

News Commentary By Matt | Contributor | The Political Insider

It’s bizarre why sanctuary cities are standing in defiance of President Donald Trump’s attempts to crack down on them. That’s because illegals are costing residents a ton of money.
