The welfare and public assistance programs are worse than ever. They still keep people trapped on them and dependent.greenspun.com : LUSENET : Gore 2004 : One Thread
My name is Miss Valerie Mae Stahl.
At present, I am in transition.
I am writing about public assistance and how it keeps people trapped on public assistance and leaves people without any money.
I am on public assistance. I am DSHS.
I am on S.S.I. (Supplemental Security Income). I am Medicaid and Medicare.
I also have a Special Needs Trust, which is used to make purchases of things.
I was talked into signing papers and nobody explained anything. The result is that I locked myself into an Irrevocable Trust. An organization known as Partners in Care is the trustee of the trust that I have.
It basically says that I have no rights to my money. I cannot fire Partners in Care. I have no right or access to my money because it is theirs.
That is not right. It is stressing me out.
For me, things are hopeless.
I want to work with Al Gore to change this.
I would like this message to be forwarded to Al Gore.
