Democrats may have finally found an issue to turn this election season around.
It turns out that Democrats don’t think we should be paying deported Nazis Social Security. Great. Wonderful. Except there’s like four of them left. Literally four.
Senate Democrats Robert Casey (D-PA) and Charles Schumer (D-NY) have teamed up with
Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and the Senate Finance Committee to propose the Nazi Benefits Termination Act, which will end Social Security benefits distributed to former Nazi war criminals and SS guards previously expelled from the U.S.
The lawmakers are reacting to a recent AP study that found that at least four surviving Nazi war criminals and SS guardsmen are receiving Social Security benefits. The money flows from a legal loophole the U.S. Justice Department used to persuade former Nazis to leave the country before deportation.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has refused the AP’s request for documentation regarding payments made to former SS officials while the Justice Department has denied using Social Security benefits as incentives for the war criminals to voluntarily leave the country.
“The idea that Nazi war criminals could receive Social Security benefits is deeply disturbing and should be remedied quickly,” Senator Casey said in a press release about the Nazi Benefits Termination Act.
Even Indiana Jones in his last movie wasn’t fighting Nazis anymore.
If the Democrats want to focus on an evil force seeking to exterminate Jews, there might be some other candidates presently at work.
