So if it actually COSTS money to drug test people on public assistance and you still want to do it, at least be honest for the reason! You just want to punish poor people and tell them what to do!

What else should poor people not be spending money on? Should they only be given a weekly stipend of milk, brown rice and eggs?

Food stamps original intent was so poor families would be able to provide food for their families - NOT to buy "pleasure food and dope & beer" with.

Why should the working class have to pay for Welfare recipants to feed themselves with booze, soda, chips, etc. when the people that have to work to support themselves go without these "pleasure foods"?

Anyone receiving Food Stamps should learn how to cook econimical meals which will last for 30 days - not a few weeks!

You cannot buy dope or beer with food stamps. And as for pleasure food, that's pretty subjective don't you think? I find a lot of pleasure in a great omelette. Should we prohibit eggs, cheese and vegetables?

Once again you prove this isn't about money, it's about trying to punish those of inferior means.

Yes you can. I use my EBT card to cash out people in line with food and they give me the cash. I'm an entripanoor!

But its not an infringement of my privacy to be required to take one and be subjected to random tests for my work? Working people have to take them, why shouldn't people on assistance, SSI, Welfare etc

You're not too bright, are you? SSI is a federal program, Supplemental Security Income, given to people on SSD (another federal program, Social Security Disability) who qualify through low or no income.

What you are talking about is Social Services.
