The U..S Government plans to expel a number of Russian diplomats from U.S. soil for allegedly committing acts of fraud when signing up for ObamaCare-mandated health insurance.
According to the Moscow Times, "The Russian diplomats and their spouses charged with fraudulently claiming a total of $1.5 million from a U.S. government health care program are all to return to Russia, a news report said Monday. Only 11 of the 49 defendants are still on American soil, and they too will soon quit the country, Kommersant reported."
A majority of the alleged ObamaCare fraudulents were Russian diplomats working in the United Nations.
As reported by the Moscow Times, "The current and former diplomats and their spouses stand accused of underreporting their incomes so that they could receive benefits from Medicaid, a program intended to help cover the cost of health care for low-income citizens."
Some Russian officials are complaining that the U.S. announcement is "politically-motivated," since Russia is protecting former NSA employee, Edward Snowden, who has been accussed of treason for publicly disclosing President Barack Obama's cyber-spying network.
