I'm on FS and after seeing some of the posts in here I have to say it. What I don't get is, if you qualify for food stamps, you qualify for WIC. Why does a household number automatically go up for a child that doesn't eat anything besides formula, or better yet breast milk? Seriously? When I had my son, we were already on WIC and as soon as he was born, my household number went up and we got $89 more in fs each month. Most months I don't spend that and it rolls over. Hell, I had shit rolling over from before I had him. Why not count him as a household member when he turns one? Sometimes, the state baffles me.
Wow, some of you amaze me. In one post it's "Screw the people on PA." "Take care of your own damn babies." "My money is being wasted!" But as soon as someone says "Hey, here's an idea!" It's "Mommy needs to eat more because she's breastfeeding." "Formula costs money you know." and "baby food isn't cheap." Really? Because two posts ago you all were telling people to pay for their own kids. Give me a break.
