    Judge Blocks New Florida Welfare Drug Testing Law | News One



    Is it me or is it that GOPtards love throwing out imaginary monetary figures just to sway people into believing something that is falseß

    Its a temporary stay.

    Will have to see where it goes.

    Funny how 7,000 decided not to take the test. Guess the free money wasn't as important as their drugs.

    You have flawed reading skills, 7,000 people *PASSED* the test and 1600 refused.

    And it was stayed on what grounds exactly? Because a judge doesn't like it? Well too bad. The legislature legitimately passed it and there is nothing unconstitutional about it.

    I understand why its unconstitutional but I like the premise of the law.

    I guess you're not paying attention. Over 7000 people PASSED the test. Only 32 failed, and 1600 did not take it. When this was discussed in an earlier thread it was established that many people did not take the test because they did not have transportation to a testing facility, while others did not have the disposable funds to pay for the test. As it is, the evidence indicates that 0.05% of applicants used drugs recently before applying.

    also, I wonder how many welfare candidates are investing some of that money in drugs? how can so many welfare people be driving nice cars and afford all those expensive gadgets? hmm, maybe that's why Obama won Cally and New York?

    I think it is funny that the applicants are less likely to use drugs than the general population. Something like only 2% are testing positive. I guess it is worth the millions in drug testing fees. Lol
