To truly hold people accountable the whole welfare system needs to be revamped.

Unless someone is physically unable to work, they shouldn't be there to begin with.....but thats a whole different story.

I can't say I like the idea of signing off on career welfare recipients just because they don't do drugs.

I agree 100%. I also think they have to show that a certain percentage of it should be going to career or education development. And, it should have a set end date so they know the timeframe to work towards.

If you give and give and provide no incentive to provide on your own, you promote laziness. I see this first hand with a friend who owns a couple HUD duplexes.

That's an idea.

Agreed. I'm all for it.

If you aren't doing drugs and have nothing to hide, you should have no problem submitting to a drug test.

I'll bet the Demos put the kibosh on this one. Heaven forbid we Americans should be held accountable for anything.

I don't know...if anything theres probably a democrat somewhere licking his chops at the thought of how much $ he can skim off the top of a new govt program to test welfare recipients.

actually, laws like this have been proposed in state legislatures over the past 2 decades...usually they get shot down...no idea why. Guess some of those elected officials get votes from the people who get the handouts...and they think taking them away will lose their vote.

Yep. That's pretty much a guarantee. Those rattlesnakes will be licking their skins at this one.
