Today, there are too many welfare leeches, and more jump on the bandwagon daily. At the beginning of 2016, North Carolina called for drug tests — and the results are in!
The results of the drug tests revealed that of 89 people who were picked for the test, 21 tested hot with drugs in their system. Considering the multitude of drug-loving liberals who exist today, we’re not shocked.
This result led to these individuals being removed and barred from the welfare program and made to pay the testing fee of $55. In addition to the 89 that were tested, 70 other recipients never ever showed up for the test.
Because of the large number of those who failed or did not show up, the state of North Carolina is requiring ALL those wishing to apply for the Work First program be tested for drugs. This requirement seems to be common sense and SHOULD be done in every state.
The Work First program aids lower incomes families with children and the care those children require. Adults who apply for the benefits of this program must be able to meet the work requirements involved.
Many people, most of them liberals, are complaining about the testing, claiming it is a waste of money. We disagree. This testing removes drug users from the welfare system, something that should be praised and implemented across the board.
These addicts are using government money to go out and buy drugs, and THAT is the waste. Welfare should be used as a method to feed your family and pay your rent if you can’t make ends meet, not for supporting a drug habit. Taxpayers’ money should not be used to support the buying and selling of cocaine or other drugs — period.
This is why the American people are suffering. Those who are legitimately in need of welfare are unable to get on it because of the lazy deadbeats who would rather get high than go to work. And the American people are sick and tired of supporting these lowlifes.
If you need to be on welfare, that’s fine. The minute you don’t, you take yourself off and let another person take your place. However, if you’re in that situation because you blew all your money on drugs, then enroll yourself in a rehabilitation center and straighten up your life — don’t waste OUR money!
I wish this drug test system was in place everywhere in the country, not just in North Carolina. Welfare shouldn’t be a thing that is easy to get on and stay on — it should be a closely monitored system, and abusers should be punished.
People in this country are so dedicated to staying on welfare and committing their lives to doing the absolute bare minimum. It’s sad. If they put some of that dedication to leeching off our money into something productive, they could achieve great things.
The government doesn’t “owe” anyone anything, and the victim mentality of the left needs to stop once and for all. The American people are so sick of liberals and their “poor me” logic. The point of welfare is not to have millions of people on it — it’s only for those who truly NEED it. The lazy left needs to get a grip, get themselves jobs, and stop wasting money!
