Priorities, please

In response to Cynthia Wind’s Nov. 7 letter on food stamp coverage, I don’t feel it’s the responsibility of taxpayers to pay for women’s feminine hygiene products.

People are losing their jobs, homes, and having a difficult time paying for heat and groceries. These people work hard, pay their taxes and receive no help from government-funded programs until it is too late. People’s lack of ambition and budgeting should not be set on the shoulders of other Mainers who earn a living and try to make ends meet.
