I think drug testing is a little dramatic. And who's going to pay for the drug testing, because I'm here to tell you I get med.assitance on my children thats it. and not only am I not going to go and stand there and get tested,but i'm sure not going to pay for it. Not every place of buisness drugs test by the way
If you dont want to pay for the drug test than pay for your childrens medical.

WHO DO YOU THINK WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THESE MILLIONS OF DRUG TESTS?
Theres better ways to spend tax dollars and spending all that money to possibly take a hungry child's food isn't one of them.

Its not worth the cost to drug test those that receive benefits. Not everyone that receives benefits, are on drugs. Besides most of those on pills probably have a legal prescription, so it would be pointless to drug test. Its not hard to wait in line at a pain clinic to get a script. Our economy is so bad right now, this will be what kills us. If they do start this Will they also be testing those that receive child support, and financial aid? Fair is fair.

If all those lazy ass pill heads had to pay for their scripts for pain medication I dont believe that pills would be so freely distributed on the street. Also any time you take a handout from the tax payers you should be tested.

If you can't afford to feed your own kids, then you should'nt be having babies.

If you are on welfare, then you have temporary sterilzation. You get it fixed once you have a job for more than a year and make a certain amount.

Time for hard working taxpayers to stop being responsible for raising and financing your unwanted kids.

Cost of paying their welfare far exceeds the cost of a test. Better use of money...

First of all, this is unconstituational.
2nd: where would this stop? what about pple drawing unemployment benefit checks? old pple who draw ssi and medicare--these also are government paid benefits. of course, we wouldn't consider pple in these positions on drugs, right---Ive worked all my life, I have worked with many pple who have "Laughed" and told me of the drugs they use, and what they did to maintain or acheive a clean drug test, lets get real. Don't pretend that everyone who "works" dont do drugs. Lets dont pretend that older pple dont do drugs. Drugs is prevelant in our society, and it doesnt matter what walk of life one person(s)is in. I beleive it will cost more money in the long run if this law is passed than what benefits may come about. I also believe that just because a person is receiving government assistance doesn't mean that they do drugs, no more than a person does that may work inside a company or agency, after all, a working class citizen would have the money to go out and buy drugs before a non-working person would.

Hate to bust your propaganda spreading, uneducated bubble, but you're talking to a town/county that is almost 100% Democratic. Seriously, you far left loonies who think every Democrat isn't religious and every Republian is religious make such fools of yourselves. That is so far from being true. But people who live on propaganda never live in reality and, therefore, always lose.

While I do not agree with having these people tested, I do agree that most people who are on food stamps should have to do some type of job, too, whether it's sweeping the streets, cleaning the courthouse or whatever, because they definitely expect everything handed to them and will not even try to work. What is worse, they hand this mentality down to their children.

Anyway, just wanted to point your ignorance out.

Wow after reading some of these responses I think it is almost useless for me to post here. Some people have an extrimy backward view of things.

One guy is actually using the name Saul Alinsky. Makes perfect sense. I don't know what to say to that. Except communism is an ignorant approach and social organizing destroys a community. It really isn't pretty in a country that is completely engulfed in communism with no capitalist system left to rely on. I have seen a lot if them, it is pitiful and very hard to live in. If you support such an idea. Take a look at the countries that have existed this way. Ask yourself if you want to live like they do. How is their quality of living. I have and I can tell you it sucks...and medical care is scary; especially for people with serious problems. Plus there is no competition so everything is outdated and gets reused A LOT to save money. In Russia just the cost of controlling the logistics of the medical industry cost so much and created so much red tape millions suffer from simple problems.

Sorry. Sure they should definately drug screen people that receive government assistance. But will they kick them off if they test positive? They should. But they won't. The point is the assistance is there to help them get back on their feet, which is cool. But I need them to pay their fare share to help me stay on mine.

A millionaire may or may not help anybody else. But he doesn't take one red cent from me or my family. But I have seen countless people who recieve welfare and the SSI thing who are taking my taxes and in effect food off of my table. Money out of my pocket.

Talk about ignoramus backword thinking. The pubtards run the country into a depression, and people who have worked their whole lives find themselves unemployed because their job moved overseas. Now i apprieciate that those that are lucky enough to have a job work hard as i do but those who lost their jobs and recieve assistance are not all lazy assholes who mooch off the gov't the facts are there just aren't jobs on every corner and certainly not jobs for anyone that needs one thats what fox news and the pubtards want everyone to think. So once again screw the economy up and send all the jobs away and bitch about all the lazy scumbags that lay around on their asses and teach their kids to mooch on gov't OH I GET IT YOUR MITT ROMNEY! IV'E HEARD YOUR CRAP BEFORE

Maybe educate the people about the harm of drugs. What's a Dr. to do when a patient complains of pain. No test for pain. Legal drugs are the problem. No way to fight them.
