Who thinks that there should be mandatory drug testing for anyone receiving Welfare?

I have to undergo drug tests for my job. So do many people in this country who work for a living. Those that are living off of Taxes paid by others should have to pass drug tests also!

It would bring a little more fairness to the system, that's for sure, but it would not solve the problem of what happens to the irresponsible, mentally ill drug abusers out there who have never had any concept of cause and effect, and thus haven't ever really made a smart decision in their lives...

Who's going to pay for it? Who will administer the tests? What about the ideal of less government intervention? Couldn't this also be used to keep tabs 'Big-Brother' style? mommanuke - It's rare to see such a reasonable argument here. Bravo!

The problem is welfare, period. Nobody should be living off other people's taxes (well except the President, the VP, Congress, Senate, State and Local legislators... umm where was I going with this?) Oh yeah ... get rid of the welfare program.

I agree. This would help two problems in the housing projects: asthma in kids and drug dealing. Housing projects are then ONLY government owned buildings where you can freely smoke. We not only pay for the building, we pay for the medical treatment from 2nd hand smoke, and security for chasing away the drug dealers.

I agree 100% they should be tested we get tested for making the money they also should get tested to proof that they are not spending it for other than intended.

Absolutely. Everyone in government should take them, if the citizens are required to. Police, Dogcatcher, Governor, everyone. Al Franken did coke with John Belushi, for heaven's sake. I wish he was governor of my state. Al Franken rocks. What was the question again?

A lot of people who know nothing about welfare. You have the fantasy that everybody on welfare is a druggie, rather than that the great majority of them are women who have children to support with no other income... More
