NC Speaker Tillis – Require drug test for “government assistance”

NC Speaker Thom Tillis has a novel idea – require a drug test for all those people getting “government assistance.”  I’m sure he means to include the big corporations that receive millions in business incentive cash payments from NC, farmers getting money from NC’s Golden Leaf foundation and so on.  Doesn’t he?

    Why stop there? Drug test everyone dropping their kids off at public schools. For that matter, drug test them for using the public roads.

    And if your house is burning down, let’s require a drug test before we let the fire fighters start spraying water. After all, we should only save the houses of those who deserve it.

    We need to test all the Democrats who received Golden Leaf money as political favors from Easley,Perdue, Black, and all the Democrat leadership.
