I'm rich and even I know ebt is for food stamps. Jill is working hard, but the stupid is too strong. In the post Jill responds to, we've got idiots who assume that just because you're poor, you don't work. In the comments of Jill's post, we get the same old I don't feel guilty crap. I'm totally for feeling guilt if it means that kids are going to eat and thus do better in school. Also, some folks out there are getting by on a single income of like 7$ an hour. So maybe after the rent is paid, the kids have their uniforms, the water and lights are on, maybe the food gets a little bit scanty. There's no shame in getting help if you need it, only shame in wanting to deny people help.

Also, amanda is good at talking.
