Go on Welfare, Live Large at the $1.2 Million Lake House

By Kay Daly

Must be nice.

A Seattle couple is on welfare, food stamps, disability and housing assistance, and is living in a beautiful $1.2 million Lake Washington home. The couple received more than $1,200 in housing assistance meant for public housing vouchers, yet used a loophole in the law which allowed them to move to a location of their choosing. They also received federal and state disability benefits and food stamps.

The 2,500 square foot house is on the lake, has a boat dock, gardens, decks, and is located in a well-known posh neighborhood. The couple did not attempt to conceal the address from state officials....apparently officials just could not care less about where taxpayer dollars went.

Finally yesterday, the jig was up.

    Where did they get the house?  It could be one they own and cannot sell.

    Unbelievable! I can actually see the home from mine across Lake Washington. I hope they get thrown in jail.

      I don’t understand how they qualified for food stamps, and all the rest when they owned this house. One has to be pretty close to total poverty to receive those benefits.

    How is this possible ????  Can I get this, as I need some Assistance so I can keep going and Survive with what little I manage to just hang-in there…… How do I sign-up for all of this ????  Kidding of course, but it sure would be nice……   I hope that this couple will have to PAY it all back and we then will be compensated for this and NOT some Illegals Aliens who expect it as if we are to give them everything FREE when they are who have broken the LAW….. It’s disgusting to know that OUR own Government will pay Illegals, but NOT help us Citizens first in what we deserve…..same as with recipients with Social Security & Medicare…..and to think Obama is giving Amnesty to Illegals……including JOBS Permits….!
    With everything Obama has done or tried to do, NOT one thing has been of any GOOD and now for this along with many other things…..we know exactly what has to be done come 2012……. VOTE as if you really mean it and then sit back and enjoy the show watching OBAMA being voted OUT of Office……

      Anyone who really needed it, more than likely would not be eligible.
