  •  We do drug test defense contractors (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    if we’re going to test welfare applicants—who receive trifling sums of money from the government—it makes as much sense to test bailout-receiving bankers, loan-backed students, defense contractors, tax-supported homeowners, married couples with children (who receive tax credits), and politicians, who aren’t strangers to drug use
    I agree with the rest as well, there is no rational reason for singling out welfare recipients.  So do them all, or don't test any of them.  As an employee of a defense contractor, we do currently have mandatory drug testing as a condition for employment.
