Now here's a health care lawsuit AG Jackley is right to pursue: South Dakota is joining sixteen other states to sue pharma-giant Wyeth for cheating Medicaid out of hundreds of millions of dollars. The suit alleges Wyeth gave hospitals big rebates on certain drugs but did not report or pass on those discounts to the state Medicaid programs.
See, when the states stand to get money, Marty Jackley is all about government health care. Now if he AG Jackley would just look up the Frontier States Amendment, he might drop that other silly health care lawsuit he filed in March.
And a note for folks girding for the battle over cost-control in health care: you can grumble about a granny here taking advantage of Medicare or an unemployed mom there abusing Medicaid to get some fancy medical treatment, but when one business can cheat taxpayers out of several hundred million dollars... well, maybe we should be concentrating on the big fish, not the small fry. Go get 'em, Marty!
