So the typical crap is going on right now in regards to the payroll tax cut extension. Democrats/Obama want it, Republicans seem to as well. Why can't they just pass it? I have no freaking idea.
And now, the latest proposal. If any of you are currently unemployed getting unemployment insurance, how do you feel about this proposal?
Personally, this would piss me off. So now the unemployed, in a crappy economy, are assumed to be drug users now, too?At a series of listening sessions with business owners throughout the First District conducted earlier this year, Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) heard repeatedly about barriers to job creation. Kingston took the views of his constituents to Washington and crafted legislation to address the issue. His legislation, the Ensuring Quality in the Unemployment Insurance Program (EQUIP) Act, would require applicants for unemployment compensation to complete a drug screening assessment as a condition for benefits.
Just thought I'd post, and see if anyone else seems a bit...perturbed about this kind of proposal.
