Thank Your Senator for Protecting the False Claims Act
Senator Chuck Grassley’s amendments to the False Claims Act have advanced out of the Senate Judiciary Committee where they now await a full vote on the Senate floor. National Whistleblower Center supports Senator Grassley’s Manger’s amendments, but we could not have done it without your mobilization to urge your Senator to support these amendments.
The False Claims Act (FCA) is the government’s most powerful tool to protect taxpayers from fraud, patients from unsafe drugs, and reduce fraud in massive Medicaid and Medicare programs. Now, it can continue to do so. These amendments are needed to protect taxpayers and ensure fraudsters are not exploiting a gap in the law to enrich themselves at the expense of the American people.
Increases in federal funding have opened the door to fraud all while the FCA was being weakened by lobbyists and corporations seeking to capitalize on loopholes. Now, whistleblower cases will be protected from arbitrary dismissals, undue discovery court fees, and retaliatory acts.
This is a major step in the safeguarding of the False Claims Act and in the protection of whistleblowers. So, please, Nick, thank your Senator for taking side of the taxpayer, the frontline worker, and the whistleblower, and send a message of thanks.
Whistleblowers protecting taxpayers from suffering at the hands of fraudsters deserve to be protected from retaliation and blacklisting. With these amendments, this is a major step in the safeguarding of the False Claims Act and in the protection of whistleblowers. So, please, Nick, thank your Senator for taking side of the taxpayer, the frontline worker, and the whistleblower, and send a message of thanks.
