According to a article on yahoo.com, the law that would test any welfare applicant before they could receive any benefits is being temporarily blocked due to a lawsuit and much criticism. Critics of the law are saying it is unconstitutional and a clear violation. While many supporters believe that it would only be fair to test the recipients just like a person would have to when applying for a job.
In my honest opinion, the testing would not matter if they do the testing only once before they start. I don't know how the system works, but they could easily get over on that system. One thing I believe would help would be a money budgeting class that would offer better ways to spend money and food stamps. Too many times do I wait in line behind people with 2 carts full of nothing but junk food and see them pay with EBT cards. And I am not downing them either. If you need assistance, get it, just don't stay on it forever.
