WASHINGTON (AP) — As Congress races to its lame-duck finish, time is running out on a government program that provides a backstop to private-sector insurance against terrorist attacks.
Lawmakers introduced legislation Thursday that would halt Social Security benefits for suspected Nazi war criminals.
The bill would make them ineligible for federal benefits and instruct the attorney general to inform the Social Security Administration when someone loses or renounces their citizenship because of their Nazi participation.
A search for some small measure of justice will go on as long as Nazi war criminals remain alive and unpunished. Never mind that almost seven decades have passed since they participated in the Holocaust. Never mind that they are well up in years, perhaps approaching 100.
