Remember this the next time Nancy Pelosi says, “The cupboard is bare. There is nothing left to cut.” Suspected Nazi war criminals are receiving Social Security benefits, funded by US Taxpayers. From The BBC:
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.
But there is anger that public money is being used in this way.
"It's absolutely outrageous that Nazi war criminals are continuing to receive Social Security benefits when they have been outlawed from our country for many, many, many years," said Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney.
You can add this to the thousands of reason why we are broke.
