The House and Senate finally agreed on something, and presumably president Obama does too. Both legislative chambers unanimously passed the No Social Security for Nazis Act in what one analyst called a remarkably swift process. It was two months ago that the Associated Press discovered Nazis were collecting social security despite alleged war crimes. The condemnation has been almost universal. So almost 63 years ago to the day that the Nazi regime declared war on the United States, the United States Congress took action to stop Nazis from benefiting from a New Deal program passed before the war.

Swift indeed.
