THis is great. It isn't the fact they are saying those who receive benefits are on drugs it is making sure that those that receive the benefits are eligible for jobs and not using the money for dope instead of spending it on more noble services.

Again, misinformation being spread through ignorance of tax laws. Not every worker pays for unemployment tax, in fact the vast majority of employees pay no unemployment tax. It is purposefully set up as a business tax. There are a few states that pass the tax onto the employees, but again, the business pays much more for your income than you do in those states.
