All social security benefit receivers?
All senators?
All justices?
All soldiers?

I think we should turn this over to the man who is tied with Walker for "America's worst governor" rick scott
His plan actually passed into law in Florida.
His toady, state Rep. Scott Plakon (R-Longwood) said "I wouldn't say that poor people love drugs, but if we are giving you money, we're asking you to take this test"
Well the results are in, the tests proved 2% of Florida welfare recipients tested used drugs.
This, in a state, where drug use is around 8%

We liberals/progressives MUST THANK RICK SCOTT
He has proven that giving welfare cuts drug use by 75%
I think we should figure out how much money Florida would save in crime costs, court costs, prison costs, medical costs - if ALL FLORIDIANS got welfare.

THANK YOU rick scott

On the streets of NY the going rate for food stamps is 500 bucks. If some of these more fiscally responsible states offered the same it'd probably save us a helluvalotta money.
