Comment:I am a single 42 year old woman who is too disabled too work but not "disabled" enough for benefits. I can't get any help. It's crossed my mind to go out and get pregnant (I am not going too) so that I could get foodstamps and healthcare. This country rewards out of wedlock pregnancies but doesn't help those of us who could use it.

Comment:This Article just shows that, before we go help other countries, we need to help ourselves. How are we able to support other countries with poverty if we can't even help ours? Lets get a strong base, then go out to other countries.

Comment:This article was good and it pointed out some things we need to work on as a country. The United States sends out millions of dollars to help tragedies in other countries while we let a lot of the tragedies at home slide by. Sure some people abuse what we give them in WIC and Welfare therefore making us give it to people we suspect will abuse it and most of the time they are the wrong people. We allow this to go on, little children in need of food while we go and rescue the world's children. I argue that we should equal out our time and funds in both aspects. I do believe we have some starving people who are better off then some of the healthiest kids in Africa but we still have kids who are very sick and need our help, kids who eat off the streets just like in third world countries. We need to help poverty at home and elsewhere, not concentrated in certain spots. Even the richest countries have their poor parts. So I believe this article assess one issue but fails to bring up the other issue.

Comment:I'm from Asia. Working & built the America Dream. When you standing in the grocery line, some use the food stamp card with a ton of processed items, then some items are not cover with it. They pulled out a greenbacks to pay it. My cart are so little with health unprocessed items with little spending. Are you sure they are poor or your statical poor ? They have to provide foods for real hunger, not stupid support with blind eyes & dumb static datas.
sorry for my poor garammar..

Comment:Mr. Clean is completely correct. I am actually using this article to make that very point in my essay. Americans need help. However, people that have the money to help choose to use it helping other countries while thier very own neighbors suffer. It all starts at home.
