There’s no arguing that a welfare system is needed here in America as we should take care of those who are absolutely unable to do so themselves, but it should be done so in a way the provides the bare minimum needed for survival. Unfortunately for the parasites that like to take advantage of America’s generosity, they aren’t going to be pleased hearing they’re going to have to pass a drug test in order to continue receiving their “free” money.
Too frequently are welfare mothers with multiple children allowed to walk around with their hair and nails all done up for the day. The fact that they wear designer clothes and buy designer bags only makes the situation worse, knowing they’re able to afford such luxuries via the tax payer’s money.
Often times, those same tax payers, who work 40+ hours a week, are unable to afford such things for themselves. Needless to say, the frustration regarding the situation comes into focus rather quickly.
That could all change in Wisconsin, where Governor Scott Walker is seeking to come through on his campaign promise to require all welfare recipients be drug tested. Not only that, but Walker is seeking to reducing the time limit on how long recipients will be allowed to collect benefits from 5 to 4 years.
The bill is set to be introduced to the Republican-controlled Legislature on February 3, leaving many freeloading parasites shaking in their boots. “With this budget, we are addressing some of the barriers keeping people from achieving true freedom and prosperity and the independence that comes with having a good job and doing it well,” Walker said in a statement.
Wisconsin isn’t the first to require drug testing. If the bill passes, they’ll join the ranks of 11 other states that already do so. The testing would apply to “able bodied” individuals that don’t have children and are on Medicaid or are receiving a variety of other benefits (welfare, unemployment, food stamps etc.).
Those who fail the drug test would be disqualified from receiving benefits but would be offered to participate in a free drug-treatment program and job training. According to Walker, he estimates his plan saving Wisconsin $3 million over two years.
