A chance to save $2 trillion dollars over ten years without harming any needy beneficiaries of Medicaid. A quick action on a Medicaid funding change would save federal taxpayers $200 billion a year without affecting services to present beneficiaries and would eliminate massive fraudulent billing of Medicaid. In addition, it would save NY local taxpayers $32 billion dollars spent matching fraudulent NY State Medicaid claims.
Medicaid Block Grants can be enacted with payments at the same average present rate for all States. In NY State, the major beneficiary of Medicaid fraud is NY State itself. Andrew Cuomo, who was NY Attorney General litigating these frauds, is aware of the fraud perpetrators in NY State.
Eric Holder, 18 years ago as DOJ Attorney for the District of Columbia in 1994, obtained a refund of $26.97 million dollars from NY State. But, Holder has been unable to make any progress for the last two years on the massive NY Medicaid fraud. NY State's twenty year spree of stealing from the Medicaid trough can be ended with block grants which will save $200 billion a year in federal expenditures or $2 trillion dollars over ten years. And, a side effect would save DOJ expenditures litigating against NY State. A prodigal NY State could then straighten out its own corruption. Other States with honest dealings, such as California, will receive increases.
Witnesses and documentation are available for immediate hearings and action. Below are links to my blog CuomoTarp.blogspot.com where additional information is available, specifically involving NY Medicaid fraud and its costs.

Re: Multi-billion dollar fraud: Special Prosecutor required for the Major Criminal Fraud by NY State officials and others taking billions of dollars a year in federal Medicaid funds. Eric Holder and the NY Offices of the US Attorney have failed to prosecute and obtain refunds. Holder has an 18 year history of covering up for Andrew Cuomo when billions of dollars are missing. Congressional oversight of the Justice Department is needed. Congress must end misappropriations and deduct past fraudulently obtained funds from present appropriations. Block grants would shift policing to the State.
