Yes, hence the quest to drug test welfare recipients. That was a bomb, wasn't it?
Now there is a national push for that. It never ends; the desire to punish people for being poor.
If.. they are welfare rolls where are they getting money for the illegal drugs??
If you're not ingesting illegal substances, a drug test shouldn't be a problem..

Drone Near NYC's JFK Airport Spotted By Pilot; FBI And FAA Investigating

NEW YORK -- The FBI and the Federal Aviation Administration said Tuesday they are investigating a pilot's report that he spotted a small unmanned aircraft near Kennedy Airport.

The Alitalia pilot told controllers that he saw the aircraft as he approached the runway at Kennedy at about 1:15 p.m. Monday. The pilot said the aircraft was 4 to 5 miles southeast of the airport and was flying at an altitude of about 1,500 feet.

The FBI said the aircraft was described as black in color and no more than 3 feet wide with four propellers.

WASHINGTON -- To fight the specter of poor people spending taxpayer money on drugs, a Republican congressman has reintroduced legislation to make welfare applicants pee in cups to prove they're clean.

Rep. Stephen Fincher's (R-Tenn.) bill would require states to randomly test 20 percent of people receiving benefits from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, which spends roughly $16 billion per year supporting poverty-stricken parents with monthly checks averaging $392.

The program was a failure, very few people tested positive for drugs, all it did was create a hardship for a single mother to have take a few buses to pay for a test that was negative.
It's all b/s

Ok let's try this again. Where will the states get the money to pay the $10,742 'tax credit' to pay the insurers for a family of 4 making $35,000 when the federal dollars dry up? Plus they can get help with the other $1388 if they can't pay it. Something about this just doesn't feel right.
Who spends 10k a year on health care? A family of 4. Lets say each individusl goes to the doctor 6 times a year at $100 a pop. We are at $2400. Each visit results in a prescription that cost $100. We are at $4800. I think a couple of family members would need emergency appendectomies to get close to 10k.

No it wasn't a failure, if one person tested positive, it achieved it's what it set out to do. If you want help w/o paying, or want someone else to pay, you just might have to jump through a few hoops... What's the problem?? Nothing is 'free' even welfare...

You're a puke filled fk and you prove it here almost daily. You once posted that those who worked with and knew you well tagged you with "Flack" which means what?

You don't know dk about health insurance, investing, or any of the sht you go on about here, you're a dunce.

But you're the most likable and honest dunce on this forum and I really enjoy reading your posts/thoughts.

Are you sure your pals didn't mean FLAK?
