SEATTLE COUPLE LIVING IN MILLION DOLLAR MANSION; STILL GETS FOOD STAMPS & GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE

The Feds raided the home of a Seattle woman and her husband, who have been lucky enough to live in a beautiful million dollar mansion.  Amazingly enough, while receiving government assistance.  Yes, that’s right…our tax dollars have supported them!

Interesting…now millionaires qualify for food stamps?   Sounds pretty Republican to me.  If left up to some of the rich, this would be fitting, the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer.  And this is coming from someone who is not typically one to take a political side.

KING 5 News reported a story about an unidentified couple, residing in a $1.2 million home and collecting $1,200 a month in public housing vouchers.   They were greedy enough to also receive government disability checks and food stamps.  It’s still not clear who owns the home, but whatever the case, they are certainly NOT poor.   

According to Federal documents, the Seattle couple has received $135,000 in housing subsidy payments and government assistance,  since 2003.   Apparently, when applying for help, government employees do not verify your home value and current laws do not require disclosure.  When they applied for help, they actually listed their real address in this upscale neighborhood near the water.  Maybe it’s time to update that policy?

Well, at least they have a good heart.  After being investigated, they were found to have donated some of it to charity.  But that was probably after their numerous trips to exclusive vacation destinations, including Mexico and Turkey.  They also had the nerve to own a Jaguar…driving in luxury while ripping off the government.  Shame on them.  They have not yet been charged, but it just may be coming…you think?

Must be nice to live in a luxurious home and still be considered “disadvantaged”.  And we wonder why our Country is broke.  Go figure…they get away with fraud for eight years, but the bank wants to evict a 103-year-old woman!
