Lawmaker wants the rich to be drug tested before receiving high-dollar tax deductions

A Congresswoman who is “sick and tired” of drug testing welfare recipients has introduced a bill in Congress that would subject the rich to many of those same requirements.

Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., unveiled Thursday the Top 1% Accountability Act, which would require those claiming itemized deductions of more than $150,000 on their tax returns to submit to drug tests or file for less generous tax deductions.

I think that rich people she's talking about would agree to this because they usually don't take drugs. I would also say that the reason they may not be finding many is because the testing is not a surprise. Most welfare recipients that use drugs aren't snorting cocaine or shooting heroin, THEY'RE SMOKING THE WEED STUPID! We all know that if a test is not surprise the test is being beaten by the recipient. Drinking a lot of water can take care of the issue within a few days for occasional users. Only frequent to heavy users of marijuana would need to worry about a scheduled test less than 30 days out. Let's not try to twist the truth to suit people cheating to get welfare.

The problem with this persons theory is that the rich people are paying taxes to give the welfare recipient money not the other way around. It's just like Welfare vs Social Security and which one we should cut first. Well it should be the Welfare because hard working people paid for the Social Security. Welfare is a gift and Social Security is paid for by the people that receive it unless they're committing some kind of fraud which is another story.

This lady also states, "I have given back ten fold". I don't believe this statement one bit and would ask that she prove it! You only gave up a welfare check to receive another welfare check for doing the same thing as a Congresswoman, NOTHING!
