Jon Stewart Wants To Know Why We're Paying Social Security Benefits To Nazis

With partisan bickering in Washington seemingly at an all-time high, lawmakers managed to find one issue they could finally agree on: denying Social Security benefits to Nazis.

"Bravo, Congress, on your courageous anti-Social Security for Nazis stand," Jon Stewart said on "The Daily Show" on Monday night. "I can't believe you just wasted the nation's time making yourselves look good by passing a bill to stop something that could never happen in a million years anyway."

But as Stewart found out, it is happening. A loophole allows former Nazis to collect millions of dollars in Social Security benefits in exchange for agreeing to leave the United States.

"Really? We have no other way of making Nazis go away but to bribe them?" Stewart asked. "See here you Nazi monster! I'll hunt you down to the ends of the Earth so that I can deliver to you these monthly Social Security checks."

That may not happen much longer.

Passed last week, the No Social Security for Nazis Act is now awaiting the president's signature.

Get Stewart's take on the situation in the clip above.
