Winners of the scheme are drug com- panies, doctors and of course the perpetrators themselves. It's a ticket to the easy life.

He got elected on a zero record, and his change has become a disaster for Americans. Barack Obama supporters voted a community activist with no experience, who has done nothing to improve his record as President. Worst leader since Jimmy "Pea- nuts" Carter. Only in America! ... The election for Mayor in Revere is heating up. Many think that Rizzo, a known political name in Revere from the "Old Boys Club," will winI While voters behind the scenes are gear- ing up for Rotondo! It will be an interesting race ...
