Do you think it's fair to Drug Test Welfare Recipients? What do you all think?
damn right

I think it's more than fair to drug test people wanting to get on welfare. And for the people complaining about it, you're just one of the many taking advantage of the system. If you can afford drugs, you can afford to fed your own damn kids and not depend on hard working people for that. Also, lose the F@ckin i phone and coach bags! You're not fooling anyone!

A message from my pay stub:

Drug tests are a good idea. But I have a better one. How about spaying and neutering welfare recipients instead? Make it a law and requirement for welfare moms to tie their tubes and welfare, deadbeat, sperm donor dads to get a vasectomy!

I've got two words for people that wat to make a shit load of babies, party, and not do shit with their lives: "Woof, Woof"

I say that because I believe my dog has more liberties than people like "you now who."

I'm a recipient but don't plan to live off of it forever! I myself wouldn't turn dwn a drug test because I'm not a dead beat mother but I do need the TEMPORARY help. I do believe a lot of birth mothers in this twn wouldnt like the idea but again the ones who suffer will be the innocent child/children ... they dnt choose who brings them into this world!!!

I totally agree with the drug testing. Don't get me wrong tho but some people actually do need the assistance. All im saying is if you can go buy drugs then you can get your a$$ to work. Stop being lazy and taking advantage of the people who actually bust there butts to make a living.

Good one "Gimme Paw". But that's a little too cruel for me. Spaying and/or neutering welfare recipients. LMAO!! It is not uncommon for individuals employed in the private sector to be tested for drug use when applying for a job. For business owners, this practice holds employees accountable for their actions, and if they do not pass the drug test, there is a very simple consequence: no job.

Similarly, drug test those who are on welfare and if drug use is found, the consequence should be the same: no further taxpayer assistance.

Taxpayers deserve to know that their hard-earned dollars are wisely used and not funding a drug user's next hit.
OK, this is just one side of the story. How about if we drug test people who receive our tax dollars for their "paycheck", shouldn't that include ALL of the people that are paid with our tax dollars? Including our city, county, state and even our federal officials? Let's not just single out one group and leave out the rest. Every one of my tax dollars are important. They are all earned with the same sweat and loss of time with my children, among other things. Think about it people.

If they come out positive, they should have to pay back.

Good for you and I agree with you 100%. But why do you suppose alot of mothers wouldn't like the idea of drug testing? And i'm not saying that they're drug addicts or alcoholics. I just want to make that clear. But who knows, maybe some of them don't want their rights violated. YEA RIGHT! As far as the kids suffering, damn right they suffer. I've known of mothers who sold their food stamps for drug money. Que bonito.

..........is it that teachers don't get drug tested? What if a teacher that does drugs, shows up to school in the morning and goes on a rampage with our kids? It can happen.

Teachers work hard while lazy welfare mothers go home to go back to sleep after leaving kids at school. They should get jobs and quit living off hard working people's money.

disability is already your earnings that you have put into from years of work, dummy. The rest I do agree with you. Some people are so freaking lazy they would rather live off the government. Those are the ones that have a brand new car and house.
