90% of people on welfare do drugs?!

http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#/pages/Making-Drug-Tests-required-to-Get-Welfare/170211991858?ref=nf

You will see a comment, by a lady making this statement. Do you believe this comment?

REMEMBER: I am not asking if there are some people on welfare that do drugs, because chances are, they do. I am asking if you believe that 90% is an accurate assumption.

  • I HIGHLY doubt that is accurate. There is no way to tell because there is NO accountability and everyone on PA is not tested.

    I would be willing to bet it is around the 50% mark tho. And I am a HUGE advocate of everyone on PA being tested and having their benefits revoked should drugs be found. I think it would make people think TWICE before taking advantage of the system. If you aren't doing drugs, then you don't have anything to worry about, right??

  • I believe that assuming makes an ASS out of you. I am all for drug testing welfare participants. However just as many people that are not on welfare do drugs too.

  • Anon 31, do you truly believe that nonsense or do you want to believe it because of the anger you have for welfare recipients?

  • I do not believe that. We need someone to find out how many people in the U.S. are on PA and then apply that 90% theory. Then we'll see how many out of 10 are supposedly on drugs.
