    Kansas Democrats force amendment to include lawmakers in welfare drug tests

    Democrats in Kansas were unable to kill a Republican bill to drug test welfare and unemployment recipients, but they were successful in adding an amendment that would require lawmakers to also face testing.

    HA..haha...hahahaha. Wow...I love this move. PLEASE...oh please let a lawmaker get busted. If you want to regulate...get regulated. LOVE IT!

    Saw this. Great move by some Dems in my state.
    But unfortunately this is going to be a giant waste of money, just look at Florida's little experiment with this.

    I love it.

    All our politicians should be drug tested and take li detector tets regularly. We'd have a whole different kind of lawmaker if we did that. What a dreamer I am, huh?

    I agree. One of the things that upsets me the most from our legislators is when they pass a law and then exempt themselves from it.

    Someone on welfare doesn't have the leverage to **** with my life quite like a politican can. With great power comes great responsibility so.... hand over that pee Mr. Distinguished Gentleman.

    OSHA and the Freedom of Information Act for starters. Oh, and a small fairly new law called the PPACA.

    Which is why there needs to be a process of federal referendum so the people can pass federal laws themselves - so they can directly limit the power of our federal legislators who impose stupid laws on the rest of the people of this country.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    More likely, Kansas will be the first red state to decriminalize marijuana. And possibly most other recreational drugs.
