      Let's face it, it took more then one person in government to turn a blind eye towards people with cancer. Let's not forget these are people who paid their taxes, had a contract with the Goernment. They paid medicare and when it came time to see a return on their investment they were left out in the cold. If a individual brooke a contract like that we would all support restitution.
