Kansas lawmakers must be on drugs
The Kansas City Star
Kansas lawmakers are back with their attack on welfare recipients, saying they could be testing for drugs if evidence exists that, well, they might be.
But here’s the best part of the bill that lawmakers tentatively approved Wednesday and finally approved this morning:
Lawmakers also could be tested for drugs if someone reasonably suspects them of using.
Sure, state officials doling out welfare checks will be ready to step all over poor people. I can see all kinds of claims that people are on drugs, trying to save money for the state and trying to make it look like state officials are doing their jobs.
Question: Who’s really going to approach a state legislator and claim they are on drugs?
I’d love to see the first state official who’d have the guts to do that.
Or would fellow state lawmakers be the judge of that?
If so, I can see all kinds of political chicanery here - with Democrats attacking Republicans and vice versa.
