How About Drug Testing For Tax Breaks?

I know drug testing for anyone getting Food Stamps or Medicaid is the perfect wedge issue for right wingers. They can claim these benefits are funded by taxpayer money... and therefore the taxpayers should not support people with addiction problems.

But if that's the rationale... then the same can be said about tax breaks. The loss of that revenue has to be made up by other taxpayers... or more likely the money is just being stolen from our kids and grandkids when we borrow money to provide services to ourselves but refuse to pay the entire bill. How much are we borrowing? I believe the FY16 deficit was a whopping 587 billion.

3. And all elected and appointed government officials and corporate executives.

and I mean random testing, at least twice a month.

I can think of nothing that can fully explain where this country is than drugs at the top, lots of them, bad ones.
