Skip to comments.Walker asks Trump to allow Wisconsin to drug test food stamp recipients
Posted on 12/20/2016 1:16:18 PM PST by kevcol
Walker has long supported drug testing food stamp recipients, a policy he and Republican lawmakers approved in 2015 that has since been blocked by a federal court. Federal law does not allow states to impose drug tests on recipients of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, better known as food stamps.
"We have been forced to delay our implementation and are optimistic your administration will give states like Wisconsin the flexibility to provide the accountability the taxpayers demand," Walker said in his letter.

Makes sense. We drug test cops and politicians.
I like this guy, Walker.
Get ready for leftist heads to explode and call it racist.
Seems reasonable to me.
But the good Governor should be able to implement this rule on his own, one would think. Guess not, otherwise he wouldn’t have asked for permission.

Thanks to Obama, being called a racist has no meaning anymore : )
...and thus launch a crazy black market for clean piss!
True. I had so many drug addicts that would abuse the cards for some quick cash that I lost count in my cab.
we drug test everyone.
I get tested for a job so someone that receives my tax dollars to sit on there ass should be tested before the get MO Money from me
I’m all for it as long as they have to drug test the Wisconsin legislation as well...
Easy way to thin out the libtards...
I am all for this you want the government to take care of you then you GIVE UP your freedoms BRING ON THE ACLU!!!!! Taxpayers should NOT support drug habits!!!!
I should have looked. Thanks.
Say yes, President Trump!
Amen. Preach it man.
If I don’t piss clean, I can’t work.
Today, we need to hold back EBT cards until a drug test is run.
Do it monthly a week or so before the EBT card is renewed on line.
If under the influence, the users are off EBT for 6 months.
The Second violation, they are off EBT for a year.
The Third violation, they are off EBT and any benefits for life.
I don’t think drug testing is proper. Too many kids take the hit. I just wish they would cut out the Gatorade and ice cream.
