Many of the jobs I had in the past had random drug testing. In fact, it is an industry wide thing, mandated by the insurance companies. But not all industries require that all employees "must," drug test in order to get hired or to keep their job

I say yes because it is taxpayer money. If we saw them using it for drugs we would want them to stop doing that, right? And not because we dont want them using drugs but because we dont want them using *our money* for drugs. So, we need to either monitor them or test them.

This whole thing about Trump wanting to drug test people who receive food stamps is crazy. You mean to tell me, that little Jimmy doesn't get to eat because his mom is an addict? How about you tell little 9 year-old Jimmy to his face that he doesn't get dinner tonight because his mom is an addict. I don't even want to hear a word about CPS or foster care. There isn't enough homes for the kids already in the system. If we pulled every kid out of home that has one parent addicted to drugs, we would have thousands of kids with no where for them to go. American children are the future. Invest in them. Don't strip them of their basic rights.

Well maybe jimmy can't eat because mommy wastes all her money on drugs. Giving a food stamp won't change that. As the money will be blown on drugs over food. The system is broken. If someone can use the stamps on drugs the system is broken. Give them a Walmart gift card. Or better yet leave it to pirvate charity. Private is more effective then government

SNAP is so little too and very difficult to get in the first place. It's such a tiny piece of the pie when it comes to government spending. Actually when you lump in Medicaid and welfare with it, it's still a shockingly small piece of the pie. I invite anyone to go out there and do their research on this.

This is a great point (although I dont think the thought was completed for some reason :))

Still, this is exactly right. We are the citizens--even if we need some assistance--we are still "the people" and the pols are supposed to be serving us. THAT is where the checking and verifying should be.

If Welfare is a "Loan" how do you propose to reimburse taxpayers for what they have paid into the system?

What will be the overhead cost for implementing a system?
WIll this require a new branch of a government agency?
Will more people be required to perform collections?
Who will pickup the legal costs for collections if need be?
This will increase the size of the US & Sate government. Is that not contrary to conservative priciples?

I am disabled for the rest of my life. And had to walk to pay what bills I could on $80 per month I used that as a focus to pay my water bill each month. One time I had to walk about 2 miles to a place that was going to pay my gas and electric bill for me. So I know it was not a luxury for me. My brother's wife came over one time so I could go to the store and said "If you need more help let us know" and they knew I had no phone.

well here is a solution, end welfare state, leave charity to private charity, I guarantee their will be more employed people, and less druggies demanding free things from the government. and by doing that the state could easily lower taxes on everyone including businesses, which then equal MORE money in peoples pockets as well as more jobs as companies will be able to hire more.
if the state is to have any kind of wellfare, it should be for injured people who cannot work or single parents with kids too young to go to school ONLY! if you can work find WORK! and maybe for those who just lost a job, but their should be an agreement that they must find employment by a certain date, and past that date regardless of wether they found work or not they are NO LONGER able to get money from the taxpayers who work

A friend thought she needed a lawyer and went that route. It took her at least 3 years to receive it and once she did she had to PAY the lawyer for his services. The lawyer received more than $3000 out of her back pay. I've never heard of anybody needing to get drug tested to receive SSI or SSDI. I take meds for two disabilities I have.

I know in my state of Pa., it's difficult to get. I think it was a lot easier to get some years ago, but not now. We had piles of hospital records that our attorney handled. I loved her. She really helped us and she did not get as much money as most attorneys get for their time. She stood to not make a penny had he not gotten it, and as predicted, he was turned down at least three times. He won on appeal and deservedly so. She was telling us that she had a man with a terminal brain tumor that got turned down!
I cringed when I hear some people say how easy it is to get and how people that get it live high off the hog. I really think it's much harder these days with all the crackdowns on fraud, and yes...there was likely a small number of people that abused the system at one time.

We never paid the attorney a dime until it was all settled and that was only a portion of back pay and nothing else. I never regretted having her with us during all those filings, appointments, and hearings. It was not an easy time for us considering how ill my son had become.

It's really insane now. I think I would have given up after the first turn down. That is where our attorney was so helpful. She also knew exactly how to present his case when it ultimately went before a judge.

It was a wonderful moment!

Dean, no attorney should ever be charging any fees up front and should only collect if the case is won. It's pretty standard that they get about 20% of a back payment from the time you file until you are awarded and nothing more.
