    Most states have what your speaking of and you can also deduct child care expenses on your federal taxes.
    So far and this is just my observation, it only helps those who want to improve their station in live.

    Most of my problems with hand out programs is, there is no guarantee that it isn't being used to increase the parents discretionary income.
    That it's actually needed by the parents.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Doing the drug test costs as much as just providing the food to ten people. You'll end up spending more money this way, even after you disqualify the drug users, so why bother?

    I dont have any problem with different opinions. I have a problem with clear attempts to flame and troll.

    I did report. And I will continue to do so each and every time you step off topic. Now would you like to comment on the topic at hand?

    Deterrence to keep people from even applying. Wipe out the ones who are abusing. And to have an impetus for removing kids from homes where drug abuse leads to neglect and financial distress.

    Instead of drug testing which makes little to no sense, use that money at the State level and provide it to DYFS to bolster their overworked/under funded issues. DYFS in some cases is not so bad, especially if putting the kids temporarily in a home where they can get food, shelter, etc., while the parents clean up (if it's drugs) or can get a job, and get themselves back on their feet.

    The whole purpose would be to get folks off the government teat and function as a useful part of society.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    They will waste time & resources denying that they are 'dirty', claiming false positives, & demanding retests .......
    I don't think it is worth the resources to create another bureauacracy to deal with it that way....
    However, if it is obvious that someone has a problem, I would image that this is/should be covered by child services anyway...
