I completely agree. Yank tyhe free ride from everyone who takes tax/government money, starting with the hypocritical slime who enact such ridiculous laws.

Basically, I think that people on welfare are entitled to everything everyone else has, and that no-one can be their judge.
It is a hard road in this world - some people make it, some don't.
We are not the judge.
Personally I'm tired of supporting them. I say yank the free ride and let them work for it like the rest of us have to. I don't get anything for free, and I have worked for everything I have. I am not in the business of giving it away just because.
People who develop useful and successful business should be rewarded. I don't see why it is corrupt for his wife to benefit - because it is a free market and competitors will benefit too. As long as this is public information, how does it harm anyone?
Among the companies that stand to benefit from the bill is Solantic, a chain of urgent-care clinics aimed at providing emergency services to walk-in customers. The Florida governor founded Solantic in 2001, only a few years after he resigned as the CEO of hospital giant Columbia/HCA amid a massive Medicare fraud scandal. In January, according to the Palm Beach Post, he transferred his $62 million stake in Solantic to his wife, Ann Scott, a homemaker involved in various charitable organizations.
This isn't the first time this law has been passed. The last time it was found unconstitutional and a waste of money and evaporated. The same will happen this time.

I had to pass a drug test for my job
I am subject to random testing by my employer
I am sick to death of paying taxes to support the gang banging drug dealer on welfare who:
-commits all the heineous crimes in the area
-sleeps all day
-sells drugs to the kids in the community
-keeps his crack whore girlfriend knocked up so they can get more assistance
all on MY tax dollar.
Simple solution: Dont wanna get drug tested? GET OFF WELFARE!
