If someone needs help with food, medical, and bill payment society bashes them.
There is a different between needing help and abuse of help.
I had to get food stamps once when my husband was out of work, he got a job and although they allowed me to have it for up to a year I only had to use it for 4 months and told them I will no longer need it. I could have lied and used it for a year but that would be wrong!!
I hated the looks I got when using ebt card. But feeding my children is more Important then what people though of me.
My husband works his ass off working 16 hour days 6 days a week, and we still can't afford to go out or buy this and that "thank God for dollar tree "
There have been times when I had to hock everything valuable just for gas for him to go to work. Its hard but we do it the right way. We don't take advantage of anyone and I pay back the assistance I received by volunteering at food banks, picking up trash along the road and parks.
So when I hear "poor people don't deserve this or that "I just think it's us poor people who severe your food, who stock the the stores you shop at, we are the ones who say have a nice day after being yelled at that something out of our control ruins your day!, we are the ones working in the snow so the roads are safe for you to go to your Christmas partys.
If we want extra we have to work 8 hours of over time to have a phone, or TV.
So the ones who are defined as poor but work to live they are the ones who should get the best medical care, those are the ones who need tax breaks.
