Following revelations that some Nazi persecutors were receiving Social Security benefits due to a loophole in the law, the U.S. House of Representatives today passed bipartisan legislation which terminates these benefits.
“It’s pretty self-explanatory. American taxpayers should not be awarding Social Security benefits to Nazis. End of story,” said Texas Congressman Kevin Brady, who serves on the Ways and Means Social Security Subcommittee. “With Social Security barreling towards bankruptcy at breakneck speed, every dime is precious and these benefits should only go to those who have earned them. As we work to preserve Social Security for future generations in the next Congress, I hope to see the same level of bipartisan support for common sense solutions.”
