And it's only the tip of the iceberg. Big business and individuals have been scamming the system since it's existence. There's ALWAYS someone with a PLAN.
Anyone remember the two women that got caught charging the GAO $187,000 for shipping 3 bolts to the military overseas? Afterward, the Pentagon said basically, 'Sorry, we just don't have the means to check those kinds of things". BS, get 'em in place. The news media loves throwing this crap out there, but I never hear what was done about any of it. In this case, I assume the women still have their multi million dollar estates(3) in the Hampton's. It's rampant, yet no one with any power seems to care...maybe they are afraid that when it's their turn, the 'fleecing' will not be available.
