There are families who truly need the assistance that food stamps bring -- hard working people who work minimum wage jobs (plural) that barely make ends meet. I grow weary of the constant painting of all those who utilize food stamps as lazy, money-grabbing, good-for-nothings who live for government handouts. After my husband left me for another woman, I found that my job alone did not suffice for all expenses with two young children. I depended upon food stamps and Medicaid until I got to a place where I didn't need them. Have some compassion for those who truly need the help and don't have a sense of entitlement.
