So I guess if you are willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, or possibly a couple million for every welfare person you kick off the rolls than yes.

This is about shaming poor people. That's all it is.

They tried this in Florida. They tested them. Only 2% of welfare receivers tested positive. They spent millions more on the tests than they "saved". The general population has a much higher rate than 2%.

Absolutely not, especially in Florida, where the Governor OWNS the company contracted to run the tests.
