It makes sense if you equate tax deductions with welfare.

I tend to believe that it is just a false statement she is making to show how some are stereo typed by class. As I understand so far is that all states that have done this have spent far more than they could ever recoup, I believe it was Florida where the governor or a relative of made a nice piece of change doing the tests & it wouldn't surprise me if more of the same is found. This is on FB all the time & I often post that politicians should be randomly tested along with staff & higher results would be found. The sad part is that it is not a joke & there is increasingly more people getting less or even no punishment for infractions if they are affluent. Not a joke at all. :roll:

From the article:
introduced a bill in Congress that would subject the rich to many of those same requirements.

Good one, Sam :lol: Keep this up you can be a comedian on stage alongside her. :up:

I like Sam’s idea to test the politicians, that would be the equivalent. You don’t test the people whose money you are taking.
Rep. Gwen Moore is just playing to her constituents. She knows it will not pass, or at least I would think she knows, but it plays well among the people she represents so believe it or not I don’t find Sam’s comments too far off.

2.6% is a lousy return on the $$$ spent on the testing program. I would bet my right nut that if you checked the list of political donors you would find dollars coming from the companies that were awarded the drug testing contracts. The testing company will see more gov't $$ associated with testing the rich people and will flood more $$ into political campaigns and the program will expand. Have you ever seen a political program contract?

The next step is mandatory, affordable drug testing to go along with mandatory, affordable health care. Along with your proof of insurance cert, you will be required to submit a urine / hair / blood sample report with your tax return. Like most everything else they won't think it through and us bald guys will get audited for not including a hair sample report. :)

Sam is talking sense as usual. Along with politicians, let's test the executives and managers of any company working under contract for the government. Keep it simple, test only for pot and cocaine and I bet the findings would open lots of eyes to the hypocrisy involved.

Would never work because of the well established propensity of the liberal to be bribed by the wealthy. Pee in a cup? How much? Done.

Always with the "liberal this" and "liberal that" *censored*. A liberal is just a conservative who understands that Ann Coulter lies all the time, Ayn Rand makes pompous pronouncements devoid of meaning, Ann Landers is dead but still makes more sense than the other two, and Glenn Beck is a pimple on the *censored* of Rush Limbaugh.

Could not resist trolling, but the liberals will be running the poster girl of corruption, after all. She will probably win too and then we can live happily ever after.
