    OK, pastoral housing allowance is not subject to federal income tax.

    Point out in the tax code that limits the dollar amount someone can pay in taxes and be forgiven for the rest.

ALL COMPLETELY WITHIN THE RULES.
    You can't get decorated cakes under the WIC program.

    You are the one making the argument that someone who pays less than someone else is being subsidized... not me. This is your game not mine.

    Didn't have time to read through your link but I have seen it with my own two eyes. Either they are allowed or Publix is allowing some funny business!

    Publix would not allow funny business and WIC (women with infant Children) is a specific program with only certain foods allowed. It is not the the SNAP (old Food Stamp) program. Also, unless there has been a recent change, there are no WIC cards. The recipients are issued check vouchers for the program.

    WIC is designed for pregnant, nursing or mothers with children under 5 years of age who are considered a nutrition risk. Hence the reason for the limited food choices.

    Maybe this link is easier to read

    OK, my bad in saying WIC. I believe it was an EBT card, and it was definitely Publix and definitely a customized cake.

    The allowable items here are problematic for me. Ice cream???

    There were plenty of strings that went with the big fat check that the US Gov't just gave to Pakistan
