This is the shorter version of letter I sent by email to president Obama .
Dear pres. Obama , re: property taxes disabled being allowed to pay without being penalized by SSI. I'm disabled as is my daughter she goes to adult daycare on a bus, I'm here caretaker. I own my house and due to 3 items with SSI can't save up to pay property taxes SSI is required to penalize me if I do.
SSI took my month of May check we ate peanut butter bread and potatoes that a church gave away.
Also took 10% of future checks. I was told fraud theft crime jail time. Told not to pay 2015 or 2016 property taxes since not on items 1-3. I'm bullheaded and paid 2015 property taxes since I don't want to lose my home.
Oprah magazine April 2012 " a safety net for those most in need." Said Barack Obama. I and my daughter are among those most in need. As might others who want to save up for propert taxes without being penalized. Disabled citizens are being mistreated by being penalized for saving up to pay property taxes when nondisabled citizens are NOT being penalized for doing the same thing.
#1 LAW SSI resources limit of 2000 my property taxes are. 2225
#2 CHART SSI of living expenses does NOT have property taxes on the chart as a living expense
# 3 SSI things that don't count against you does NOT have property taxes on the list.
It as if for SSI property taxes do NOT exist although for the rest of the world they do.!
Rosa Parks said " I did not get on the bus to be arrested. I got on the bus to go home." I admire her
"I did not get save up property taxes to be penalized. I paid property taxes to keep my home." So, call me saunter.
mr president please change items 1 2 3 so I and other disabled won't be penalized for saving up to pay property taxes to keep our homes. Please help us there are as of 2013 over 8 million disabled in the USA . Thank you, I used my real name on the email , but , you can call me, saunter. 8/25/2015.
I do not understand everything you say here, because we are in different countries with different laws. I don't know where you can go in the US for FREE legal advice. In Britain we have an organisation called the "Citizens Advice Bureau" that can give free guidance regarding most legal matters - no charge. Is there nothing similar in the US? The US has the proud boast that it is the "Land of the Free". I hope this is true and that you would not have to consult expensive lawyers, just to be told that you are stuck between a rock and a hard place! If there is a problem with anything it is probably best to go to the "top". You Emailed the US President! I hope you get a proper reply.
Much respect Lady.
