One of the biggest issues in my OPINION with this Countries Welfare Program is that it is too easy to receive it. With all the talk of our National Debt, I firmly believe that in order to receive Welfare, you must first pass a drug test. Take it a step further and then be able to administer random screenings in order for a person to keep receiving it. So, they must pass the first one in order to be approved for the program initially, and if they fail a random test say 6 mo later, then they wouldnt receive their monthly checks. This again is my OPINION would save this country and the tax payers a ton of money. Now, I'm not heartless, I'm not against the Welfare Program all together because I realize bad things do happen to good people, but it too easy to get. People take advantage of it. I bet a large number of people on Welfare receive it just for the simple fact that they are too damn lazy to work. I bet of the Government instituted drug testing into the Welfare Program the amount of my saved would be mind boggling. Unfortunately we have 4 more years of Obama. Don't believe he and Congress will do anything to reduce the debt. Hell they doubled it the first four years. Again, just my opinion.

It probably won't help unless they watch while they go. I know several people who pass pee tests with other people's pee. It would only really hurt kids in the end. If a person is taken off of it for failing a drug test then how will the kids eat?? I know the welfare program must exist, and I am all for a hand-up, but tired of seeing it be a hand-out. I don't think there should ever be a program where people who work can't afford decent food, but people on foodstamps can. Not talking about the disabled and elderly, just the able bodied.

I agree totally...you should have to pass a drug test...and if you fail your kicked off ....but the only problem is that the US would want to put in action some for of rehab for the person then that would be more money for the tax payers...I have a family member that was assigned to go rehab and this person had no money and we the tax payers had to flip the bill....she only.had to stay six months and sence she didn't have a place to go she stayed for nine months at the coast of ten thousand a month.....so if they come up with a plan for that...the ordinary should have there wages cut to pay for the rehab some how...

I totally agree that people on welfare should pass a drug test. As for the kids, if their parents are on drugs, I highly doubt they give a rats ass if there is food on the table for them. Where do you think the welfare money is going to? Definitely not toward their necessities, but to their needs. If they fail a drug test and they have children, children should be removed from the home. Too many kids grow up exposed to their parents using and abusing drugs, leaves no hope for them in the future...

I have several people in my family in welfare and I couldn't agree more..drug tests should be giving to anyone whos receiving gov benefits. I know that shit happens on peoples lives but when your 30, 40, 50 years old and you still haven't gotten your life together then your priorities are fucked up..get rid of welfare or make it to where people have to take a drug test and show proof they are looking for jobs every damn day

Everybody that's on welfare should be drug tested. Because if they have money to spend on drugs then why in the f*** can't they feed there family.

Agreed but I think the bigger question is what will the consequence be when they fail cuz if they get kicked off the crime rate will be higher due to theft prolly and if they do it for welfare they need to do it for section 8 and daycare vouchers too any kind of assistance should be monitored
