Welfare reform

"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?"

from my outsider looking in view, this would potentially (at a very extreme push of the spirit of the law) breach the aspect against self-incrimination in the 5th Amendment. The state is asking the welfare claimant to provide the evidence to damn themselves.

personally....I think cool

I haven't actually thought about the issue too much, although it reeks of the "welfare queen" mentality and would probably just be applied unevenly and essentially racistly, without testing rural white recipients.

I did enjoy a class I was taking, some bullshit mandatory communication thing, where the students, mostly 17-20 kids, were all for this law, talking about how reasonable it was, but then the teacher asked if they also thought there should be mandatory drug testing for receiving student financial aid and mother fuckers started hemming and hawing and backpedaling just as fast as they could, it was pretty hilarious.

I just think that it is a clever way to boost the economy, actually I was looking for was 'not spend as much money'.

Why do you think either of those would boost the economy?
