I don't think it's a good idea. Peole aer still losing jobs and things like that. Sure, they can have savings for times like that, but that 6 month cushion isn't enough any more. It took my ex 9 months to find a job after leaving the military. So, even the ones who have done things right may need help.
WIC can be better done. Limit the amount of food/formula better. Also even though they do offer BF classes, I think they should do a better job so that more women would BF therefore cutting costs again with less formula being bought. It should also go on cards for every state. If I dont buy all the milk in one month that money isn't wasted. Sorry but getting 2-3 gallons of milk at a time is dumb.
farmers will lose out too....great...NOT
1 in 50 people were on it in the 70s. Now it is 1 in 7 After reading about all the posts on here, there seems to be a lot of abuse. People getting 600 or 700 a month in FS is ridiculous.
It's about time. The program is out of control and we simply cannot afford to keep it going at the same rate.
