Food stamps and unemployment issues are simple to resolve.
Why don’t we have any lawmakers who have spine enough to say it? There would be more than enough food stamp assistance to go to people who are truly in need if we could eliminate fraud.
Drug test at random everyone who receives food stamps and unemployment benefits. If someone turns up positive or does not show up for the test, assistance stops. Dependents could apply for assistance in their own names, and would be subject to random drug tests as well.
Unemployment assistance should be limited to four months max for any period of two years.
