Did you read the entire series of articles? Yes, this policy needs to end

They have no right to be entitled to just come to our country as non-citizens just to collect benefits. This article proves that they do just that! They come here because they know they can rape our system!! You see nothing wrong with that??

Wic is actually very important a lot of people on it are working and don't qualify for food stamps. I honestly think the best thing is for our government to subsidize formula like they do corn, meat, bread. Because we honestly pay way more for with this wic program. Most of the moms I know on wic don't even want most of the stuff. They just want formula. If 55% of infants received wic thats a problem. I consider myself blessed that I was able to stay home for a year and was able to breastfeed my son.

I agree with your post 1000%, exactly what I have been saying these people have some nerve. They need
a stamp put on there forehead and shipped back to there country express non stop with no return...😠...
I bet we won't get away in there country, scamming what ever system they have if any. Another reason
why our country is over populated.

as a tax payer for the last 30 years im glad to see that some people think this is wrong -I dont have a problem with a person who needs a hand feeding or housing themselves or there children but to abuse a system because you can is a sin -After working 50-65 hrs a week to feed my own family its very dishearting to read that someone is taken advantage of my hard work -I relize that I and my family are lucky enough to be able to afford to live in a nice house and that it could of gone the other way -After being tax to death im talking on average they get me for 700 a week thats every week -Can you image how it feels reading this -Like I wrote if you need it cuz you cant make it on what ur being paid and it gives you a chance to help you or your children Im more then happy to give a portion of what I work for -But to take advantage of other peoples hard work -Its a sin in my eyes -So turn these people in -
