AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?
You have an option here and welfare is not a Constitutional gaurantee.
Yes, having to pay up front can be problematic IMO. There have been times I didn't have $30. Then if the numbers applying drop by 25% you can not conclude it was because they were on drugs and didn't want to be tested. Maybe they just didn't have $30.The state should upfront pay for the test - no one should have to pay out of pocket. If one fails then they just don't get benefits and maybe they pay back the $30.00
2% is still high in my opinion for how few people they tested and for how short of a time they've done the testing.
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.
Maybe the new mandate convinced some to get OFF drugs. The higher % demographic of drug users matches that of higher % of welfare recipients. I find it hard to believe welfare recipients in FL are the exception.
