The U.S. Justice Department on Thursday announced charges against 601 people including doctors and nurses for taking part in healthcare fraud and opioid-related crimes that resulted in more than $2 billion in losses.

The arrests came as part of what the department said was the largest healthcare fraud takedown in U.S. history and included 162 doctors and other suspects charged for their roles in prescribing and distributing addictive opioid painkillers.

“In many cases, doctors, nurses, and pharmacists take advantage of people suffering from drug addiction in order to line their pockets,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “These are despicable crimes.”

The charges centered in part on schemes to bill the government healthcare programs Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare as well as private insurers for medically unnecessary prescription drugs and compounded medications.

The Justice Department also brought charges against medical professionals it said were contributing to the country’s opioid epidemic by participating in the unlawful distribution of prescription painkillers.

No, kike, we have plenty of history. We have history here, and we have history in Europe, where we originate from. You are the one with no history, you nomadic parasite.

Celtic doesn't mean Irish. Celtic people spanned most of Europe. It was a culture, which included Germans, Irish, English, Scottish, Polish etc.
