Rep. Corrine Brown said the tests "represent an extreme and illegal invasion of personal privacy."

"Indeed, investigating people when there is probable cause to suspect they are abusing drugs is one thing," Brown said in the joint statement. "But these tests amount to strip searching our state's most vulnerable residents merely because they rely on the government for financial support during these difficult economic times."

I wonder if these left wings idiots feel the same way about requiring drug testing for people who actually WORK for a living, like our military, or even people who work at Lowe's, Home Depot or any company that requires drug testing. I say IT'S ABOUT TIME

And here is the fricking loophole!

"Those who fail the required drug testing may designate another individual to receive the benefits on behalf of their children."

IMO, you fail.... sorry! At least then the children can be taken away, right?

That doesn't stop the original failure from selling the card for $$$ for drugs though. There are just way too many loopholes in assistance.
