"It's not right for taxpayer money to be paying for somebody's drug addiction"

adults applying for welfare assistance to undergo drug screenings

It's not right for taxpayer money to be paying for somebody's drug addiction, ... On top of that, this is going to increase personal responsibility, personal accountability. We shouldn't be subsidizing people's addiction.

I live in hope of seeing that measure here in NZ at your local WINZ taxpayer cash dispensary for bludgers.

Imagine. Want to tap the taxpayer? Well, pee in this bottle. Weekly.

Usual suspects are screaming blue murder.
What (Scott) is doing is giving ugly legitimacy to an unfortunate stereotype that has been in this country for a couple of decades -- that all welfare recipients are a bunch of drug abusers

Can't argue with that. Governor Rick Scott of Florida shows he's got the right stuff.

Damn right.

I get NO CHOICE in my tax money funding the chemically-addled.

Thus they should get NO CHOICE in being drug-tested as a prerequisite to being fit for work.

Would that we could have that policy here in NZ.

It is begining to really gtare that people who sit on their arse and breed get more than I do and I have to pay for it.
