MONEY. Every vote in favor of this issue is backed with the faulty logic of "I take a test to earn my money, so should the freeloaders." So, let's waste tax dollars by testing everyone on welfare. How about this, take the tax dollars that all those in favor of drug testing would theoretically have to spend and instead, create jobs and hire people to provide greater oversight of where the welfare funds end up and who is using them. Want to bet that in very short order all of the FRAUD and also misappropriated funds will begin to turn up. I do not disagree at all that there are people who abuse the system. I have seen it happen, know people who have done it and constantly hear of cases where hundreds of thousands of welfare funds have gone to one individual because the people who have the responsibility to make sure the money is going to the people that actually need it are overwhelmed. If instead of WASTING money, like all of the people who support this idea of drug testing people receiving welfare seem to want to do, why not try actually administering the system properly from the start?
