In Sen. Marco Rubio’s Nov. 12 Other Views column, Protect Americans from ‘Obamacare’ scammers, he writes that “each year in Florida, we see hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars vanish into the hands of Medicare and Medicaid fraudsters.”
I hope it’s just a typo. I hope he actually meant hundreds of millions of dollars. But if our senator honestly typed, or approved, the words “hundreds of billions” he ought to be aware of how much is actually spent in this state on those programs and what percentage of our national GDP even $200 billion would represent.
One would hope he has that much interest in his job.
