Default this is how bad it's gotten...

...even foreign politicians get to steal from us.

U.S. charges 49 Russian diplomats with healthcare fraud


http://news.yahoo.com/u-charges-49-r...163040902.html


Quote:
U.S. prosecutors have charged 49 current and former Russian diplomats and their family members with participating in a scheme to get health benefits intended for the poor by lying about their income. According to the charges, filed in November and unsealed on Thursday, the diplomats' families got around $1.5 million in benefits from the Medicaid program for families with very low monthly incomes - in many cases around $3,000 or less. The benefits covered costs related to pregnancies, births and infant care, the charges say.

Doesn't sound like they're "getting to steal" if they're being charged...

ok never mind the fact that they lied about their income to gain access to social programs , lets focus on the fact that they were/are NOT US citizens and they are NOT and NEVER have been US taxpayers. the fact that they were even allowed to apply for social programs is "getting to steal" from us.
also since they have diplomatic immunity the US can't do shit about it unless russia allows it. so its up to russia wether or not they "get to steal" from us....although the theft has already occurred.

Quote:
U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said at a Manhattan press conference that the U.S. State Department would have had to request a waiver of immunity from Russia in order for U.S. authorities to arrest the defendants. If no waiver is granted, Bharara said the State Department can insist that the defendants leave the country.
Quote:
Bharara said only 11 are still in the United States; ten are diplomats with the Russian Mission to the U.N. and their spouses, and one is now stationed at the Russian embassy in Washington.
