More bad news on the Philippine Health Care system front:

"I know this is illegal and wrong to submit fraudulent claims to get money, but I did it for fun," U.S. Navy retiree Romulo Estoesta told investigators. He died in 2002.

In an extraordinary laps of US Govt. fiscal responsibility, the US was bilked out of 100million dollars by Philippine Hospitals, Doctors, Clinics and Military personnel. 17 convictions so far, with more indictments comming. The Philippines are refusing to allow extradition to the US, or blocking efforts to get more ringleaders and crooked Philippine based companies and individuals to trial in the USA.

Going to need wading boots to get thru all of the garbage that is coming out of Philippines lately. It is getting worse and worse on a daily basis.

The government there needs to step up to the plate and take some responsibility for what has been going on there for some time and it just seems to be getting worse and worse; definitely not better by any imagination.
