Only 49 more states to go!

Hooray for Florida !

I-95 and I-75 will be jammed for the next month or so with druggies and deadbeats heading North out of Florida, because this is the first state in the union to require drug testing to receive welfare!

Hooray for Florida! In signing the new law, Republican Gov. Rick Scott said, "If Floridians want welfare, they better make sure they are drug-free."

Applicants must pay for the drug test, but are reimbursed if they test drug-free. Applicants who test positive for illicit substances, won't be eligible for the funds for a year, or until they undergo treatment. Those who fail a second time will be banned from receiving funds for three years!

Naturally, a few people are crying this is unconstitutional.
How is this unconstitutional? It's a legal requirement that every person applying for a job has to pass drug tests in order to get the job, why not those who receive welfare?

You know this happened a while back, right? And that it is no longer in effect? And that it ended up costing Florida taxpayers an additional $120,000?

It did make a decent amount of money for Solantic, though ... Oddly enough, the company founded by Governor Rick Scott, but whose shares were handed over to his wife.

You are an idiot. This happened two years ago and was a miserable failure. You will believe anything, huh?

Doesn't it make a lot more sense to drug test the governors, senators, representatives and public officials who are responsible for managing and allocating our money? I would vote for that in a heartbeat.
