What's a few billion dollars, anyway?

The federal government has harsh words for Albany, and its remarkable failure to root out what the New York Times has identified as millions, and perhaps billions, of dollars of fraud against the State's Medicaid program. We're sure that there are plenty of county officials who have some harsh words for Albany as well; as FixAlbany has noted, many counties around the state are drowning in Medicaid expenses passed on by Albany to local governments.

There's a word for the failure to take real steps when confronted with a multi-billion dollar fraud, and it starts with the letter "D".
