President Trump Set to Sign Bill Allowing States to Drug Test Welfare Recipients!

While liberals continue to deny its existence, most Americans are keenly aware that welfare fraud is a real problem that needs to be destroyed.

For years, Republicans in Congress have tried to crack down on welfare abuse, hoping to give states the power to ensure that those receiving welfare benefits are truly deserving of such assistance. Democrats, of course, have fought any and all attempts at accountability.

But now, Congress has just taken a major step in their welfare reform agenda, voting to allow states to drug test individuals seeking unemployment benefits. President Trump is expected to sign the legislation in the coming days.

From Fox 6 Now:

The resolution — approved by the Senate on Tuesday, March 14th after passing in the House in February — nixes a Labor Department regulation that limited how many unemployment-benefit applicants states could test for drugs. The old rule, implemented under former President Barack Obama, mandated that states could only test applicants if they were looking for work in jobs that require regular drug screenings.

The repeal measure narrowly passed the Senate, 51–48, under the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to undo some recently implemented federal regulations with a simple majority. The House used the same maneuver to get it through their chamber last month with a 236–189 majority.

Republicans argued that the Obama-era regulation gave the federal government too much oversight on an issue that should have been decided at the state level.

“As we saw too often, the Obama administration went beyond its legal authority in creating legislation that limits the role of state governments,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said.

I suggest that Congress set the example by taking the SAME test BEFORE they are allowed to vote on ANY legislation!

Many in congress are addicted to drugs, rapist, wife beaters, don't pay their bills and also tax evaders. Sounds like a group of people that should be in jail instead of making laws for us to live by?

No shit. Mandatory Drug Testing for ALL those in politics & public service. Including cops...

I agree with the other posters ... why not drug test the congress first, then wall street, then the military industrial complex, then members of the corporate media.  How about putting a stop to the corporate fraud that cost tax payers far more than what is lost through welfare ... trillions over millions.

Congress love to beat up on the little people while servicing their handlers.  They are the biggest bunch of hypocrites that walk the Earth.

I forgot pedophiles in my above statement, this and all the other points above could also describe some Senate members.  Don’t forget the sweet deals that make them and their spouse’s instant millionaires.

This has been talked about for several years and the same thing is always in the conversation - how about testing the people making the 'law' be tested first. This will never happen. Instead, the 'wisdom' of the masses under 'group think' will continue voting away their power to the people chosen for them to vote for and said 'voter' will complain and the comments will look exactly like this page. Doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results is... bizarre.

The communist carrion feeders and the voting machines that are rigged by the powers that be elect these criminals, I have known for years that our voting system is rotten to the core,  I voted in the 60's one time and stopped voting until I voted for Trump this election.  I think I messed up again, nothing has changed, he's still feeding our tax dollars to the pariah Israel while vets, our infra structure and America crumbles.

Dutch Election rigged? Live poll updates!

I’m hearing that Geert Wilders’ support has dropped rapidly in the last few days and he’s not in the lead now – in fact he’s third.

This seems mighty strange considering all the muslim hostility in the Netherlands lately from the Turks. I’d have thought this would increase his support..

If the voting system has been compromised; so has the govt. It's not legit & therefore MUST be overthrown/DESTROYED.

Of course Democrats are completely against drug testing for Welfare recipients because these entitlement voters are their bread and butter at the polls to re-elect these bastards!

Hey Scandinavia! Watch some 'Rambo' movies. Toughen up & protect your kids & women.

Both parties do drugs. Ever seen John McCain?
