Hooray for Florida ! Only 49 more states to go!!!!!!!

Only 49 more states to go!!!!!!!

Hooray for Florida !


I-95 and I-75 will be jammed for the next month or so with druggies and deadbeats heading North out of Florida, because this is the first state in the union to require drug testing to receive welfare!

Hooray for Florida ! In signing the new law, Republican Gov. Rick Scott said, "If Floridians want welfare, they better make sure they are drug-free."

Applicants must pay for the drug test, but are reimbursed if they test drug-free. Applicants who test positive for illicit substances won't be eligible for the funds for a year, or until they undergo treatment. Those who fail a second time will be banned from receiving funds for three years!

Naturally, a few people are crying this is unconstitutional.
How is this unconstitutional? It's a legal requirement that every person applying for a job has to pass drug tests in order to get the job, why not those who receive welfare?


Let's get welfare back to the ones who need it, not to those who won't get a job.
I AGREE, DO YOU?

    Typical classless response by somebody with nothing to back their case. By the way, if they did try hitting my house there'd be one less person on assistance.

    WHAT Chuck Noriis only backs the Constitution

    When Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed the law requiring welfare recipients to pass annual drug tests to collect benefits, he justified the likely unconstitutional law by saying it would save the state money by keeping drug users from using public money to subsidize their drug habits. Drug use, Scott claimed, was higher among welfare recipients than among the rest of the population.

    Preliminary results from the state’s first round of testing, however, has seemingly proven both of those claims false. Only 2 percent of welfare recipients failed drug tests, meaning the state must reimburse the cost of the $30 drug tests to the 96 percent of recipients who passed drug tests . After reimbursements, the state’s savings will be almost broke.

    LMAO You must be on the ole doobies now. HERE is the difference. YOU chose a work place that does drug testing SOCK...I see you just joined Shead a few hours ago. LMAO can not come here under your REAL profile? LOL

    Rick Scott's program almost bankrupted this State!! HE found almost NO ONE on drugs!! LMAO So the STATE had to PAY for ALL those useless drugtests and THEN it was ruled unconsitutional!! And he was aware of that but did it anyway. SO really, he BLEW more of your money then anyone on Welfare would. And if that was not enought to WASTE your money on he has been purging LEGAL voters and the STATE is paying for that TOO, even tho he has been TOLD it is ILLEGAL to DO SO. SO you see cons love breaking the law on YOUR dime.

    It's a step in the right direction. They need to follow up with random unannounced testing. Florida appears to only be testing at application time and lets the applicant schedule and pay for the test them self. So of course most will schedule the test and make sure they are drug free for it. Need to throw some randomness in there to catch anyone gaming the system. That's the same thing they do to anyone working.

    People schedule the test themselves. They are not random. So I fully EXPECT most to come back clean. They refrain from drugs to pass the test. 4% aren't getting benefits.

    I have a way to really save money. Cut them all off and tell them get a friggin job.

    The tests were not scheduled by the welfare crowd. The money was deducted ASAP out of their income or lose the income. They had no idea what was ahead for them. Many were thrown deeper into poverty over this Sharia Law enforcement.
