Mandate Drug Testing For Welfare Recipients

To Whom It May Concern,

It is important that congress proposes a law that would make it mandatory for welfare recipients to pass a drug test before they obtain any benefits. Once receiving their benefits, the welfare recipients should then be subjected to random drug testing.

If a recipient admittedly has a drug problem, it should be mandatory for said person to undergo drug rehabilitation and therapy.

Any person seeking benefits who denies a drug addiction, admits to a problem and fails to comply with drug rehabilitation or who fails a drug test, should not be allowed to receive or apply for benefits again for a 90 day period, from the date of time the test was failed.

It is the working citizens of the United States who pay for Welfare with the taxes that are deducted from their paychecks. Most of these citizens are subjected to mandatory drug testing in order to seek employment. If said person fails a drug test, then they do not have a job. People seeking welfare should be subjected to the same rules. The working class should not have to support people who are taking illegal drugs. After all if the person seeking benefits can afford to pay for drugs, then why are they unable to provide the necessities for themselves and/or their families?
