The Department of Health and Human Services is raiding several of its accounts, including money for Medicare, the Ryan White AIDS/HIV program and those for cancer and flu research to cover a shortfall in housing illegal youths pouring over the border at a rate of 255 a day. HHS is trying to come up with $167 million to fund the Office of Refugee Resettlement that is accepting the youths, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.
Policy Director Jessica Vaughan said that insiders have told her that the funding crisis has forced the department to squeeze programs for money. The money, she said, pays for “shelters, health care, schooling, recreation, and other services for the new illegal arrivals, who typically were brought to the border by smugglers paid by their parents, who often are living in the United States illegally.”
What the f*ck is this as*hole doing? Is Congress (Paul Ryan & republicans) allowing this money to be re-appropriated? They spent $1.2 billion in 2016 on these illegals and now are asking for $2 billion for next year.
Medicare Paid $9.3 Million in Benefits to Illegal Immigrants Agency paid out over 14,500 claims to nearly 500 illegal immigrants
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services paid $9.3 million in benefits to illegal immigrants in 2013 and 2014, according to an audit from the agency’s inspector general.
“Medicare benefits are generally allowable when rendered to a beneficiary whom the Social Security Administration has determined to be a U.S. citizen or U.S. national,” the audit explains. “Medicare does not pay for services rendered to beneficiaries who are unlawfully present on the date of service.”
Laws governing the agency require it to ensure that payments for Medicare services are not made to individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States. The agency is required to take steps to prevent improper payments from occurring and recoup improper payments if they are made.
“[The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services] had policies and procedures to ensure that payments were not made for Medicare services rendered to unlawfully present beneficiaries in accordance with Federal requirements, but it did not always follow those policies and procedures,” the audit said.
LOL! Obama: I Could’ve Been Great If Not For Fox News
What do you get when a failed president sits down with a rape-hoaxer? You get some very satisfying schadenfreude, that’s what. Absolutely delicious.
President Barack Hussein Obama, the second most powerful human being in the world, has just 50 days left in office. He’s getting ready to turn over the White House to a man he clearly despises. He just watched the voters reject everything he stands for. They’re finally getting back at him for everything he’s done to them over the past eight years. His precious legacy lays before him in ruins.
What better way to wallow in his misery than to sit down with the disgraced publisher of the discredited Rolling Stone magazine?
Jann S. Wenner — who is still defending everything in his publication’s UVA gang-rape story except for, y’know, the gang-rape — opens on a funereal note:
My final interview with President Obama in the White House had been scheduled for the day after the presidential election. I had hoped to look back on what he had achieved over eight years and the issues that mattered the most to him and to the readers of Rolling Stone, hear his advice for Hillary and about the road ahead. It was to be the “exit interview,” his tenth cover for Rolling Stone, our fourth interview together…
