Gyrfalcon: Still, I could be wrong, there could be lots of people somehow spending their nonexistent cash benefits on drugs and whores, and doing crimes to pay for their food and rent, but I suspect my experience is more common than the reverse.
skullkrusher: I would imagine rolling out technology to limit the sort of expenses allowed is prohibitively expensive.
skullkrusher: spawn73: Why isn't recieving a welfare that provides for basic food and shelter a human right in USA?Probably because you guys don't consider recieving free treatment and education is a right either.I think that's partially the point of this backasswards policy. They want to ensure that welfare is not used on drugs and instead is used on food and shelter
Jon iz teh kewl: Nadie_AZ: What about anger management issues? Or tobacco use? Or prescription medicine abuse? Or eating foods that are clearly unhealthy for you? Why does the Government care about some things we put in our bodies, but not others?because by simply putting down "drugs" you automatically get Catholic supporters in droves. cause they're against anything that's not wine
reitage: Somacandra: Unless the exact same rule applies to KS legislators showing up for "work," then its bullshiat. Make the lords play by the same rules the peasants have to....and watch what happens to the "rules."I had to take a drug test to get my job, why shouldn't someone have to take one to take my money from me?
Bloody William: Kansas, the state so shiatty even the city named after it decided it would rather be in Missouri.
Jon iz teh kewl: IgG4: Jon iz teh kewl: i'd like welfare, but i don't know what i'd do with my time if i'm not allowed to use drugs.. kratom??[s3.amazonaws.com image 245x320]aah vodaklove me some of that now
Lawnchair: As a Kansan
Nadie_AZ: Elegy: Drug testing? WHY?What we should be doing for welfare recipients is POOR TESTING.Has teh poors? No welfare for you!This quote is very accurate, I find."Mormons Republicans get burned up when they read about someone buying a bottle of mouthwash with food stamps, but they love big water defense projects. They only object to nickel-and-dime welfare. They love it in great big gobs."
