Now, that former Gov. Jeb Bush has endorsed Gov. Rick Scott for a second term, at least we can say that he is consistent when it comes to people and companies involved in Medicare fraud.
He lobbied HHS Secretary Margaret Heckler in 1992 to give Miguel Recarey, head of IMC, a fair hearing on his company getting 50 percent of its revenue from Medicare and we know where that ended.
Recarey was a Medicare fraudster and, to date, he’s still a fugitive. Perhaps now that Scott has Bush’s endorsement, he’ll get lost, too. We Floridians can only be so lucky.
