Work, Urine Tests, Taxes & Welfare

A friend passed this along to me. Thank you Jen Gilbert.

Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem). What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don’t have to pass a urine test.

So, here is my Question: Shouldn’t one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ass – doing drugs, while I work. . . . Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

I guess we could title that program, ‘Urine or You’re Out’.

    could not agree more. I am all for that. Why not make them earn there check too. I know along the road there is a lot of trash. HHMMM are we onto something?

    The 1996 Welfare Reform Act made it legal for states to perform drug tests on welfare recipients. Too bad it didn't include corporate welfare recipients like Goldman Sachs.
