Government Punishes Disabled Woman For Free Baseball Tickets

A disabled woman is having her social security garnished after accepting free tickets to a baseball game. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“The Social Security administration said that it will take money from a disabled Missouri woman after she accepted free tickets to a baseball game.

Joyce Jeter told WDAF that she has an incurable disease called neurofibromatosis. The disease causes tumors to appear on her body. Her leg had to be amputated after one tumor tested positive for cancer.

“I’m in constant pain all the time,” Jeter noted. “It prevents me from doing some things.”

She said that people have mocked and bullied her because of her appearance. So Jeter was delighted when people got together and raised $3,700 on a GoFundMe page so that they could send her to a Kansas City Royals game.

“It was just awesome being there. I mean, it was just a feeling like, ‘God, this is like, maybe heaven,'” Jeter recalled.

But her happiness turned to fear after she was notified that the money would be taken out of her Social Security check.

“I’m troubled and stuff, because I can’t afford to lose that $176 a month,” she explained. “Actually, it’s like taking food out of my mouth.”

Jeter said that she planned to contact legal aid in hopes of fighting the government’s decision.”*

    Government officials don’t have a soul.

      This is why we don’t need more government. They only care about their jobs
      and procedure if that. Most of the time they don’t care about procedure
      either.

    It’s not complicated, Income tax is not only theft but it is
    UNCONSTIUTIONAL in America! Why does a channel with “for the people by the
    people” logo ignore this fact? Ignorance or indoctrination?

      LeCrazyCanuckEh Oh right. Income tax, which is PART OF THE CONSTITUTION, is
      unconstitutional.

    The Pentagon lost 2.3 TRILLION DOLLARS! That’s a lot of baseball games.
    Give her a break.

    Shouldn’t that be classified more as a gift rather than income? By this
    standard, I should include my grandma’s $5 checks she sent me for Christmas
    every year as income!

    176 a month wtf, that’s like my Chinese food budget alone.

    bring back the troops make defense spending about DEFENSE. imagine that
    surplus of leftover $. ending the FED is not a bad idea either. these would
    corporatize medicine and even allow proper funding for gov’t healthcare.
