Nazis on Social Security


The US government has paid dozens of suspected Nazi war criminals millions of dollars in Social Security benefits after forcing them to leave the US.

The payments, funded by taxpayers, were made through a legal loophole, an Associated Press investigation has uncovered. Some are still being paid.

Former guards at Nazi labour camps, where millions died, are among them.

The US justice department says benefits are paid to individuals who renounce US citizenship and leave voluntarily.

How are our laws so stupid that people who have renounced their citizenship and left the country can still get a check from American taxpayers?

    Democrat response if anyone tries to change this: There those evil Republicans go again, trying to take social security away from the old and misunderstood.

    I’m certain Gwen Moore has this press conference phrase cued up already.
