The Missouri House has passed a bill that would require welfare recipients to take drug tests if the state suspects they’re using illegal drugs. Positive test results could cost them state assistance for up to a year.
It’s not a bad idea.
Look, if mom and dad have enough money for drugs, then they should have enough for food. Right? I say go for it, as long as we can extend those drug tests to recipients of corporate welfare. How about elected officials? The results might actually help us understand why those numbnuts are pissing away taxpayers’ money.
So, who’s going to introduce the bill that calls for drug-testing elected officials? Anyone?
