It has been proven in many US states that drug testing for welfare recipients doesn't work, is costly and a complete waste of time. Newsflash, DRUGS COST MONEY! If someone on welfare is buying drugs and alcohol and is on welfare, that is pretty well all they are buying. No food, no rent, nothing. Do you know how much someone on welfare makes a month? $610. It may have gone up since I was last on it while I was waiting to get onto disability. But really, you pay fuck all for welfare from your taxes. Someone on welfare can either be a drug addict and live on the streets, or they can eat for a week or so. That's pretty much it. I am so sick and fucking tired of hearing people bitch and whine about "paying for people to sit on their ass and do drugs while they're on welfare" Fuck off with that bullshit. Welfare is NOTHING! Even if you have child subsidies. It is NOT enough to live on. Not even fucking close. Pull your heads out of your asses.
