But let’s think about this for a moment.
The libertarian in me says we need less intrusion, not more, but I understand the premise: people on the government dole should be held to the same standard as their benefactors.
We tax payersÂ are the 53% so by default we are their (the people on welfare and or food stamps) employers. It’s a shame their job description is so undemanding, really. It’s actually non-existent if you think about it, aside from a set-up appointment and a few phone calls the monetary benefits far out-way the miniscule effort/reward ratio. And really, who can resist government cheese? Certainly not the entire class of people the left has trained to suckle the government teat over the last 50 years. So, I’m in agreement, in principle.
But as long as we’re tossing around ideas…
Let’s require drug tests for Congress and all public employees
by randomly chosen, non-union labs,
or no tests at all.
except by the requirements of their employer and even then they should be performance driven.
The point is, Congress should be subject to every condition and requirement for employment they legislate upon the people they supposedly serve. That goes for public employees as well.
That’s not asking too much, is it?
