When drug testing of welfare recipients has been done it has always cost more money that it has saved. IF YOU CALL YOURSELF A FISCAL CONSERVATIVE THEN YOU MUST BE AGSINST TESTING. Other data has shown again and again that illegal drug use in welfare recipients occurs at same percentage as the general population. People who want this done have fallen for the propaganda that those needing government assistance are not hard working Americans that have had bad luck. Rather, they believe the stereotyp of lazy, brown-skimmed, drug users. Wake up and smell the coffee people: there but for the grace of God go you or I.
