Do you support laws that mandate welfare recipients to pass a drug test before receiving funds, even though we have learned the tests cost tax payers more money than they save?
I'm really surprised by the results. I would think ppl would want to save money.
I really wish this would die. It doesn't work, it costs more than it saves, it's a horrible idea.
Instead how about revamping welfare and stop letting people turn it into a lifestyle.
I think addiction is a disease that no one chooses or can over come without treatment. Give them help if you test them. Then screen for diabetes, cancer etcetera. Help the people who need it the most not just the ones who will get better.
It's the principle of the matter.
Sign paper to okay random drug tests like bike riders.( ya think Tour de France might be slower this year?). Take $ saved on test fails, use it to finance random tests for others. Might end up saving$$$.
The issue is not drugs/no drugs. It is abuse of system, systemic corruption, fraud, etc. Focus on *roots* of problem, not *symptoms* of problem. TRULY needed, should have access. All others: *won't* work, don't eat. They *can* do *something*.
No point. It's a social net. It's meant for those types of people. I would support it if a positive result landed someone in subsidized rehab, not losing benefits. If they lost benefits they'll just end up even lower.
At first glance I was set to answer, yes, make them pass a drug test; however, if the tests cost more than they save, what's the point? I answered, no, no tests -- not until the ROI is proven.
Even though there may be more costs involved I believe with the rate of fraudulence regarding tax payer funded benefits there needs to be safeguards protecting we the tax payers. Maybe we pull the funding from the programs own funding.
how about no welfare? How about it you are capable of working you can work. If you can't find a job you can work for the gov rebuilding our infrastructure
So we should increase government spending to give them jobs?
It's better then paying them to sit and do nothing I would think...
And if they are single parents or incapable of doing that kind of manual labor as many recipients are?
You know as well as I do to many are abusing the system.
I actually don't know that. The ones who are on it that I know are all either working or raising kids and not content with poverty.
I thought the Goverment was going to wait on rebuilding until after the citizens of this country were beaten into submission, unarmed & residing in containment camps forced to give up all of their assets,& bow to the tyrants. Then rebuild .
Isn't it private contractors who end up "building infrastructure"?
Who would pay the private contractors? Is this the toll road idea? No one has the right to operate a vehicle any way, so why have paved roads? We will be free to walk about.
Or just have more kids.
