NEW YORK — U.S. claims that dozens of Russian diplomats and their spouses cheated to get health care aid meant for the poor drew a sharp rebuke Thursday from a top Russian official who blamed the criminal case on "Russophobic forces" interested in scuttling progress toward Russia-U.S. cooperation in confronting world conflicts.

This is probably a drop in the bucket compared to the fraud of this program by U.S. citizens whom the government is not so quick to go after because that would cause the loss of votes. It's not that much. Let it go. (sarcasm)

wow Obama is worried about a few Russian diplomats when welfare fraud is rampant in the US. There are small stores in every large urban area who are paying cash for food stamps at pennies on the dollar. We have people in Louisiana who found out that due to a technological glitch their EBT cards had no limit and instead of notifying their case workers, they went and bought out local stores, sticking the rest of us with the bill. We have many families who have been on food stamps for generation after generation with no plan by our govt. to help them improve their lives. And we worry about a few Russians. Talk about grandstanding.
