Drug Test Those Immoral 1%-ers!

 

Rep. Linda Sanchez (CA-D)And The Vietnamese Do Turn Out And Vote” called for drug testing Americans who inherit substantial legacies from their parents. In speaking at a committee hearing on March 18, the California Democrat said that Americans who receive government subsidies such as food stamps already submit to drug tests and thus reasoned that the “lucky” inheritors of wealth should do likewise. “What work requirements are there to inherit up to $10 million tax free?” she asked a witness. “Why is that [a single mother] should be drug tested, which is an unrelated requirement to receive food assistance, to make sure that her family has enough to eat,” asked Sanchez. “And people who are lucky enough to inherit millions of dollars are literally required to do nothing to get the federal tax benefit with their inheritance?”

Yeah, those 1% folks, yatta, yatta, yatta…

I wonder if millionairess Senator Nancy Pelosi will submit to a blood test?  Or Secretary of State Heinz Ketchup?  (Or is that Catsup?)

If the argument were people who make millions from the government coffers (e.g. corporate welfare) I might agree with Rep. Sanchez.  Good for the goose, and all that.

But private monies within inheritances?  Does she think the government owns that money?

  1. “Americans who receive government subsidies such as food stamps already submit to drug tests”

    In a small handful of states. I think it should be a requirement in every state.

    ” Does she think the government owns that money?”

    Yes, as a matter of fact, she does. Typical liberal idiot pisswit/government vulture.

  4. Yes, she DOES think the gummit owns that money. And like so many of her ilk, she fails to understand that IT’S NONE OF HER D@!#$D BUSINESS!
