I'm not sure what to do about it, but it makes me so sad.  Our government spends so much money on so many things, but the first thing to cut is funding to feed pregnant women and little ones.  I believe this bill still has to go through the senate, but I'm not sure.  Please urge your senators to vote in favor of food aid to moms and children.

Big surprise "no cuts for big oil/gas".  Thanks for posting this thread. Many american's are asleep. Our children need to be first! Not industry. Think about it, for many low income families WIC is the reason there are any healthy foods coming in the house. Fresh fruits/ vegetables, cheese, rice, cereal, not just milk. 

Wake up, from the democratic/republican  conditioning we have all been fed all of our lives. For our children, we must revolt. Vote against the two party system.  Massive corporations control our country. They buy the elections, they (the lobbies) already  own whoever wins the democratic or republican ticket. Our parents threw their hands up in despair lamenting that "you can't change things." So they couldn't. Our heads are full of lies about eachother. Our hearts must be awakened. Think with your heart, your children do.

Uh, how about we not pay for two endless wars. . .

 

Shame on those republicans who are supporting this.
