Laura Ingraham hosted Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.
Coburn said every area of government is rife with fraud as well as the disability Social Security insurance which is close to going bankrupt. He stated the lawyers have been incentivized to represent bogus claimants with doctors testimony bought and paid for on behalf of the clients. He said 25% of claimants aren't truly eligible for benefits. He predicts that this will be the future for Obamacare as well and that careful Congressional oversight is needed. He pointed to Oklahoma that has a program to put previously disabled people back to work. He noted there are no penalties for lawyers and doctors who defraud this program.
Coburn said the government is out of control with too much money wasted and whistleblowers are castigated.
Coburn defended his stance on defunding Obamacare because he feels it's more important to fight battles that can be won.
