Who knows but I would guess that it is staffed with people who don't give a crap and get paid for breathing and showing up for work. If they gave them a financial incentive to find cheaters, it would be different.....but then the unions would get upset. They don't want anybody paid for doing better than somebody else....stupid. And you base this on what personal observation?I know nothing of people who investigate Medicare fraud, but I have some experience with people who get paid to pursue people who don't pay their taxes. While we were paid a salary regardless of how much we collected, there were financial incentives such as promotions and performance awards for those who were good at it. I'm not a fan of public employee unions myself, but I haven't let that get in the way of common sense.But let's look at the broader issue. You seem to think that a law enforcement system in which the enforcers are paid on a piecework basis would be a good thing. I shudder at the thought.Phil
