Like a lot of folks in this state and county, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no problem.
What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check , Medicaid or section 8 because I have to pass one to earn it for them?
Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their butts, doing drugs, destroying property, sleeping during day, committing crimes, reducing “Quality of Life” of others and receiving Welfare checks, Section 8 Housing and Medicaid while I work and pay for these programs....
Adding to this insult is the fact that if I get laid-off I would not qualify to receive assistance from the programs I paid into all these years.
Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check, Section 8 housing and/or Medicaid?
The following tax-payers bailout program saves lots of money and costs tax-payers nothing. It may instead give tax=payers a tax break.
Guess we could title this program,'Urine or You're Out'.
