First off, i'm not blasting anyone who uses WIC, i just want educated as my wife is currently considering using this resource. However, I question myself..where does this magic money come from? It seems to me not a bad plan, allow women and infants the ability to buy things that are actually something they need. Not TV, video games, alcohol..blah blah blah. So, does anyone know how WIC is funded? Is this something we pay for out of our own taxes?
