DRUG TESTING FOR WELFARE RECIPIENTS

Idea#95

Stage: Active

Campaign: State Operations

Mandatory drug testing in order to collect welfare checks is something I'd like to see. And why not implement the same idea as WIC program does for food stamps? You are only allowed to buy what is EXACTLY printed on the voucher. I can't tell you how many times I'm standing behind someone on state aid with steak, chips, pop and other JUNK in their carts while I'm buying ground chuck!! I've paid taxes for over 30 years and cannot eat as well as welfare recipients. WIC is a great program - its regulated!! Lets quit paying for their cell phones with OUR surcharges on our bills...and can anyone tell me how they afford Cadillac Escalades?

    Maybe you think we should drug-test everybody before we let them vote, too?
