Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?article by Brian Montopoli called, “Orrin Hatch Calls for Drug Testing Welfare Recipients.”
Once again I received this email in my in-box, but this time it was from my 90 year grandmother. Here it is in its entirety:
“Funny, before this last election I was labeled a ‘Citizen, Taxpayer and a Veteran!’
Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.
In order to get that paycheck, in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem).
What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don’t have to pass a urine test.
So, here is my question, ‘Shouldn’t one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?’
Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their BUTT, doing drugs while I work.

I guess we could call the program ‘URINE OR YOU’RE OUT’!
P.S. Just a thought, all politicians should have to pass a urine test too!
