Where is Attorney General Jeff Sessions? He’s working behind the scenes doing the job we knew he was set out to do and this deserves a huge stamp of approval!
Sessions has charged 400 people across the nation for participating in scams to cheat the American voter via the health care system.
Liberals are going to freak! They believe government needs to spend more money to combat the epidemic not prosecute the people that are abusing the system and contributing to the problem. Now, they are going to use this excuse as to GOP being counter-productive, and this is part of the reason the Obamacare is failing.
Thank God For AG Sessions and President Trump for enforcing the law and going after these scam artists.

More than 400 people across the country have been charged with participating in health care fraud scams totaling about $1.3 billion in false billings, including for the prescription and distribution of opioids.
In what federal officials Thursday called the “largest ever health care fraud enforcement action” by the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, 412 individuals, including 115 doctors, nurses and other licensed medical professionals, were arrested in a nationwide operation that involved more than 1,000 law enforcement agents in at least 30 states.
“One American dies of a drug overdose every 11 minutes and more than 2 million Americans are ensnared in addiction to prescription painkillers,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a news conference. “We will continue to find, arrest, prosecute, convict and incarcerate fraudsters and drug dealers wherever they are.”
Sessions said the operation began with tips from people in the affected communities and from “very sophisticated computer programs that identify outliers.”
The investigation particularly focused on medical professionals who were involved in the unlawful distribution of opioids and other prescription narcotics, officials said. The abuse of pharmaceutical opioids is widely blamed for a medical crisis involving tens of thousands of overdoses on heroin and fentanyl.
Suspects account for more than $1.3 billion in fraudulent transactions. 120 were involved in opioid-related crimes. https://t.co/Za1TfkUpDN

I tried to tell everyone that Sessions is a man for the DOJ job! He means business. I met him once when I was riding around with the Tea Party Network News team. He has an excellent judicial record of prosecutions, and as I just said, he means. It is just the beginning. Keep your eyes open, my friends.
There is so much more to come from this office, and it’s going to be grand.
