How do you figure that would make the government bigger??? The system currently is in place for the aid and to add one more step to test for drugs could be done at the time of getting the help. Those that have a job would not have to take the test since they already had one when they started work. Most places check for drugs at random in todays world. This would be saving tax dollars and giving HELP to people who use it as it should be for food, gas, lights, water, home, and NOT FOR DRUGS.
Drug testing requires more bureaucrats. Drug tests are expensive and accomplish very little.

barak obama is george bush jr. with a deep suntan. the biggest difference between obama & romney is skin color. when will people learn the donkeys & the elephants have the exact same agenda. if anything meaningful could be acheived through voting it would`ve been made illegal long ago. 52 people telling 48 people what to do IS NOT FREEDOM. Democracy is a scam.

Actually it is TRUE….you’re just too uneducated to know that. Let me help you.
Findings: General Characteristics
Most SNAP participants were children or
elderly. Nearly half (47 percent) were under age
18 and another 8 percent were age 60 or older.
Working-age women represented 28 percent of the
caseload, while working-age men represented 17
percent.
Many SNAP participants had jobs. Nearly 30
percent of SNAP households had earnings in 2010,
and 41 percent of all SNAP participants lived in a
household with earnings. For most of these
households, earnings were the primary source of
income.

Educate yourself!

Look at the total PICTURE:

Guess how many people are now on welfare?
The numbers keep going up. With a dismal economy and Barack Obama's encouragement of people to keep on programs like food stamps, the increase in welfare recipients has been dramatic. According to the Census Bureau, there are over 100 million people on welfare.

As shown in the chart presented by the Republican staff of the Senate Budget Committee, about 10 million new people were added to the welfare rolls in just the two years from 2009 to 2011. AND... the total number of 108,000,000 does NOT include those receiving Social Security or Medicare.

Food stamps and Medicaid make up a large--and growing--chunk of the more than 100 million recipients. "Among the major means tested welfare programs, since 2000 Medicaid has increased from 34 million people to 54 million in 2011 and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps) from 17 million to 45 million in 2011," says the Senate Budget Committee. "Spending on food stamps alone is projected to reach $800 billion over the next decade."

What a mess America is in.
