Letter to the Editor
The United States Supreme Court ruled today the the government can garnish the Social Security checks of old disabled people who haven’t paid back their student loans. The decision against a 67 year old Seattle man who lives in public housing who says he needs his $874 a month to pay for food and medicine. It may be legal for America to take money from a poor old disabled man but that doesn’t make it right. It speaks as to who we are as a nation and a people and reflects the (lack of) heart of America’s soul.
