If we don’t stop them, the government will take the very rug under our feet. And not just Biden’s corrupt federal government. Americans have to stand up to state and local governments, whenever they try to trample our rights.
This story will really shock you. A grandma owed $15,000 in taxes on her condo. Instead of trying to help this woman, the county stole her house, kicked her out, and sold it for $40,000. And they kept all the money, despite her owing much less. Well, the Supreme Court didn’t appreciate this one bit.
From Fox News:
The Supreme Court ruled in favor Thursday of a 94-year-old Minnesota grandmother who claimed that the state violated her constitutional rights when they seized her condo over an unpaid tax debt, then sold the property and kept all the sale proceeds — which were far above what she actually owed…
“The taxpayer must render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, but no more,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the court’s opinion.
Boom! The Supreme Court sided with 94-year-old Geraldine Tyler, who lost her house due to back taxes. Hennepin County of Minnesota sold her house for $40,000 but did not return the surplus to the woman, in what most of us would call theft.
The Supreme Court agreed, knocking down the county’s claim that they had a right to that extra cash.
You know, this woman would have never gotten justice, had she not taken this all the way to the Supreme Court. Just imagine the cruelty that this county showed a woman in her 90s. Where is the compassion? Where is the humanity?
There is none, when you’re dealing with bureaucrats. They only blindly follow the rules, ignoring the pain they are afflicting onto American citizens.
And to think, Democrats keep wanting more power and more of our wealth to go into the hands of government workers like them. This was an African American grandmother who was in need of help. But the government ran roughshod over her.
Hmm… maybe we need less government? Now, there’s an idea!
- The Supreme Court sided with a grandmother who lost her house to the government.
- Hennepin took her $40,000 home over a $15,000 tax debt. They sold it but did not give her the surplus.
- The court ruled that the county did not have the right to keep the rest of the money.
