My little family of 3 was on WIC for about a year. I don't feel bad about it. I'm very very grateful for it. It is there for us citizens when we need it. I paid my taxes into programs like that, and continue to do so, and I'm fine with that.
I don't get why some people seem to view "help" as such a bad thing. I appreciate it in all its forms. Help from family, friends, strangers; help FOR them as well. I'd rather be a community than a "tough, lone ranger-type who never has to accept help from anyone, thank-you-very-much"
And the idea of "You shouldn't have a baby if you can't afford it"... well, really. It doesn't always work that way no matter how smart you think you are.

people that think its bad are republicans!
They are just to "high class" to use government programs designed to help people though ruff times.
I do however have a hard time when I see people come in with food stamps wic checks and a welfare debit card and they are buying cigarettes and alcohol.
if they cant afford food, formula, milk and cheese for there children or for themselves why do they need cigarettes and alcohol?
But for the people that REALLY need it, go for it, because there is nothing wrong with asking for help when you actually need it.
