i think it is a great idea I'm on disability an i honestly think it is great i also think they should drug test every one that gets any kind of gov assentince then we wouldn't have so many ppl trying to abuse the system.I also think any one with a drug abuse record shouldn't get any thing unless they have to save receipts an show what they purchase.so that cant use there benefit's for anything illegal then those of us who actually have a true medical condition wont be condemned for things we don't do.i also think the drug testing should be random every month so the guilty ones cant go out an clean there systems.

It's not an idea, they have recently sent this bill to the house, and now waiting to get passed. I heard this on the radio(npr news) just last week. But it's true.........

Do you know how much money would be saved in the long run? Cut the druggies off. If they have to go to work to eat they won't have so much time to sit around and do drugs.

Then they would be drug tested to make sure they have the meds in their system and count the pills in their bottles to make sure they're not selling them or abusing them. If they can't account for where the meds are then they're cut off also.

GOOD!!!! Most of these people live better than us working people. Drugs take out of all our pockets. Maybe they can raise checks for the real people that need it. AND I can't go to a store without someone in line to check out with one or sometimes two buggies full of POP!!! Paying with food stamps!!!! You know there is a child somewhere in that picture that is not getting the benefit for the food stamps!!!! And I know of this week (3) babies born to able healty parents, that don't work!!! Don't intend to work, and never will!!!!! You my friend and I will pay that BILL!!!!!!! Yet Obama wants to cut benefits for our parents and grandparents with medicare, that paid it in all their lives!!!! Wake up day is coming soon!!! GOOD!!

I think she should do the test. It is a good idea. I am on SSDI. I would give anything to be able to work again. I have been so depressed because I can't get out and work. I don't care to be tested for drug use. I have nothing in system.

Yes, but if would cut off the ones who do'nt deserve it. The ones that spend it on drugs etc ...The ppl who just can't help themselves and deserve it could have a better life, because they would be able to get a well deserved raise...
