No more getting high at tax payers’ expense, or flying high on welfare at tax payer’s expense, at least, not in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families proposed that those seeking welfare, or food stamps, unemployment insurance payments, or even employment via a state program may have to take, and pass, a drug test, effective this past Monday, November 9th

While proposed by a state agency, and approved by Governor Scott Walker, the program was approved by the state legislature in July.

Wisconsin is following in the footsteps of 13 other like-minded states, who have had enough of societal leaches robbing from everyone else barely scraping by.

“Employers across the state frequently tell me they have good-paying jobs available in high-demand fields, but need their workers to be drug-free.

These important entitlement reforms will help more people find family-supporting jobs, moving them from government dependence to true independence,” say Governor Walker.

Naturally this is not well received by the Liberals among us, who claim that in some of those 13 states, drug use accounts for <1% of welfare recipients, according to the aggressive-progressive “ThinkProgress.”

Well, ThinkProgress, the rest of us ThinkLogic and we THINK it is time welfare recipients demonstrate they are worthy of our assistance, rather than demanding it.
