Interesting Point

I got this in an email several months back and have been meaning to post it since... kind of an interesting point.


(Whoever wrote this one deserves a HUGE pat on the back!)
Joe, the average worker says:
Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no problem.
What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their lazy butts, doing drugs, while I work . . ..
Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though . . . Something has to change in this country -- and soon!!!!!

hoza...I gotta say -- I agree. It makes sense and I'm SURE it would save money.

Been saying it for years....but never more so than this year when my insurance (that I work hard to pay for) denied my medication, but those on welfare and such get free medicine. UGH.
