Public Assistance....

I got this thru an e-mail today and thought I would share...it makes a good point:

Like a lot of folks in this state I have a job. I work, they pay me. 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 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 ass. Could you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check????

I wonder what you'd have to do to pass a law making welfare recipients pass a drug test before they could continue receiving financial aide???? Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmm.

Yes, they should make them pass urine test. That's the problem with welfare. It encourages people not to work, have little children, and not marry.

It's a vicious cycle and it's hard to get off because let's face it...getting money for nothing is much better than earning it a few dollars per hour!
