U.S. Chamber Of Commerce Says FCA "Ineffective" ???!!!

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently published “Fixing The False Claims Act,” in which the Chamber unexplainably and incoherently states that the False Claims Act “is the government’s most important tool to uncover and punish fraud against the United States,” and that the FCA is “simply ineffective at preventing fraud as it is currently structured and enforced.”

While the FCA recoveries are in the Billions annually, and a recent study revealed a $20 to $1 return on investment for government money recovered under the FCA in Medicare/Medicaid, the Chamber begrudgingly agrees that the FCA has had “some successes.”

The Chamber’s study appears as a thinly veiled lobbying platform aimed at an insane attempt to persuade Congress (or anyone that might listen) that the FCA needs fixing.  Certainly, one group of supporters could be those companies having committed fraud against the government; perhaps that same group are members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
