He states this not out of sheer fairness, but rather bitterness.please remeber these are the same people who require all other tax payer funded employees to be drug tested and in some states require welfare recipients to be drug tested as well. These are also the same people authorize the various government agencies to spy on the American people whether they voted for the bill or continue to authorize funding for those agencies.
I'm presuming this was said merely to be consistent rather than elevate the profile of the average person, or...aspiring citizen to be superior to that of the elected official?I would go even further. I would require that all candidates for national office be required to take the same test that immigrants are required to take to become citizens--I think most of them would fail!
Don't get me wrong, I find drug testing welfare recipients to be a waste of time and effort, but let's not kid ourselves that this isn't done out of the spirit of raising pitch forks and lit torches to go at the elite.
