    Due to changes made in the 90's, able bodied people cannot collect unemployment longer than 2 years.

    It's unreal and so contradictory for these politicians to try and control what less fortunate people spend money on when the majority of them are on the receiving end of the biggest handouts in this country. Absolutely disgusting. If ANYONE ever tries to force a drug test on me for the sole reason that I am unemployed I am relocating. I know this issue has come up several times before, but I honestly find it repulsive.

    Me too! The top 10% get annual tax breaks that average $58,000 which is more money than 90% of the country makes in a year! How about drug testing for all those folks?

    Good point, but that sure shoots a hole in the conservative talking point of equal opportunity for all.

    Military, and other "government workers" get randomly drug tested. I see only positive coming from drug testing UI, welfare, or any recipient of "government funds," whether it be state or federal.

    Are prepared at a minimum to spend 300 million on that?

    That is assuming 15 million unemployed at 20 dollars per test. And no contested tests.

    Random testing, not test all. The military, and parole folks do it quite well. Take what they have been doing for decades and use it. With a signature on the seal saying this is your bodily fluids is hard to argue against.
