The Federal Court Tells Florida’s Governor Scott To Go Pee In His Own Cup. Law Found UnconstitutionalThese bills are aimed directly at the poor, so it is singling out a class of people for peeing into cups. No bankers, no contractors who have Federal contracts, no corporations that receive Federal subsidies, or anybody else who sucks on the government's teat, is included. Only the poor, who receive welfare.Florida and Missouri have passed into law, bills that require recipients of welfare to submit to blood, urine or hair sample tests in order to claim their checks. Thirty-six states have bills pending and many Republican dominated state houses are eager to test those that are “living off the generosity of the real taxpayers.” I’ve been told that as the taxpayers, we are, in effect, their employers and as such, demanding drug tests should be no different than those demanded by many employers in the “real work force.” Or so goes the reasoning for these tests. And so goes thousands of posts and comments on websites by conservative supporters with mini-celebrations announcing the states that have passed these testing requirements: “Two down, 48 to go.” Florida won the race for passing the first Welfare Recipients Pee in a Cup law and then became the first to face a challenge on the constitutionality of it.
You know, I am not against this law. As soon as it applies to the banksters and corporate CEO's, as well as the poor, I will be for it. It will be constitutional then.
