A guy who grew up in my neighborhood receives a check for $1700 a month from SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance). He is a Heroin addict on the methadone clinic who has no other disability than being an addict. He lives in his parents cellar and uses the $1700, to find ways around methadone to get high. There are a few drugs that allow you to still get high while being on methadone. Today I got this chain letter and I wanted to pass it along..... "Like most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem). What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test. So, here is my Question: Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ass - doing drugs, while I work. . . . Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? I guess we could title that program, 'Urine or You're Out'.
