Faces of the Federal Budget

I began receiving food stamps...in 2011. I do feel entitled because I had a full time job at 16 and now when I need help most they think I am lazy. If more representatives were required to understand what it's like to live on...food stamps, it's not a lot of food. There is so much ignorance about who actually needs it. I've seen that studies show that fraud is pretty low for welfare benefits. No one is talking about the millions who got help.
