    Rep. Jack Kingston wants UE beneficiaries to be tested for drug use. He seems to be basing his proposal on a single employer's unsubstantiated claim that half of the applicants for jobs at his business failed drug tests. In pushing for a similar law in her state, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley also said that an employer had a high number of job applicants fail drug tests - a claim that she later admitted was false.

    If they're taking our tax money as federal handouts, sure drug test them at least a couple of times a year. Why should we be handing over our money to junkies?

    I would rather hand 50$ to a junky than trillions to assholes on wall street and we get more value.

    Who said they're junkies? Did you even read the article? The Congressman's proposal is based off of one employer's unsubstantiated claim. I'd prefer laws to be based off of facts, not baseless fears.

    Not to mention the obvious constitutional implications. A recent ruling in Florida is a good example:
