Barely Getting By
As President Obama gives his perspective on the State of the Union this evening, he might do well to consider how many people listening are in the same state as Frances Reed. She's 72 years old and lives in South Carolina. She tries very hard to get by every month on her social security check and food stamps, but it doesn't always work. The curious thing is, Frances was one of the first to help distribute money from the program designed to help needy women and children, WIC. She talks to Dick Gordon about how now she's depending on the kindness of strangers to get by.
