Yes by all means lets not cut anything from the budget that encourages young women to continue to have babies every year, even though they cant afford them. WIC is there for low income women and not to be used by ILLEGALS, but of course we all know this is a lie. If you have a limited amount of income and can't take care of a baby, DO NOT GET PREGNANT. The old fashion saying of keeping a nickle pressed between you knees when you are out on a date should apply to these women. Personally, I am tired of paying for everyone that "CAN"T" take care of themselves. Where is their family, where are their morals, where is the family of the man getting them with child to help take care of the. Don't even get me started on the money to help feed the rest of the world. When we take care of the people in the United States then maybe we can take care of the people in foreign countries. The people also have an abundance of children they can't take care of and hope someone else will step in and take care of them. Can you tell I am fed up with the democRATS and their free give-aways that I am having to pay for and after working all my life, being on a fixed income, I can't afford to keep giving and giving and giving to the freeloaders.

You can fully fund WIC with one days worth of Bush tax cuts.

Here we go again. The democrats saying Rep. want to starve the poor and feed old people Alpo. To the best of my knowledge women were breastfeeding babies long before the government was telling them how to do it. And just why should America feed everybody else all of the time? Isn't it somebody elses turn by now? We can't afford to be the keeper of the world anymore.
