OMOTD - Inflated Government story

OMOTD - “Oh my” of the day

Just listening to Fox Business report on US Government Spending on VES

For those unfamiliar, VES is Vacuum Enhancement System. In short, it’s a piece of equipment designed to improve a certain part of the male anatomy too delicate to discuss in detail but I’m thinking you probably get the picture.

Hey, it’s a legitimate business that employs people and offers a product that many find useful. Who am I to judge?

But that’s NOT the story…

$175,000,000 - $175 million dollars. The US Inspector General’s office released a report yesterday that reports that Medicare (that’s the program for those over 65) paid 473,620 claims for these devices over the last 5 years!

The report went on to say that the amount the Government spent was about twice the amount that the same devices could have been purchased for privately.

Here are a few “take aways”...

#1 - I’m sure some number of the the 473,620 recipients of their recently acquired taxpayer funded appliance are worthy and deserving and I apologize if I’ve offended anyone

#2 - I’m sure that most of this is outrageously inflated spending and unforgivable government waste at a time when people are losing their homes and having trouble feeding their families and…

#3 - I think this is one more testimony why a program for everybody under 65 - Obamacare - will probably make this waste example shrink in comparison over time

Vernon Wallis - just call me Vern

5 Million children under the age of 5 die every year due to malnutrition. For about $2 a day you can FEED YOURSELF the best nutrition on the planet and Mannatech will feed one of those children - Make the switch from making money to making money with a mission
