During Barack Obama’s sham of a presidency, he allowed millions of people to go on welfare and game the system. President Donald Trump, however, isn’t having any of this.
With the help of Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Kevin Brady, Trump just signed legislation to allow states to drug test a larger number of unemployment and welfare applicants.
“Under the previous administration, the Department of Labor undermined the ability of states to conduct drug testing in their programs as permitted by Congress. This rule was yet another example of executive overreach by the Obama administration, and I commend President Trump for signing this resolution into law,” wrote Cruz in his official statement.
The Obama administration was fine with welfare users using their benefits to buy drugs, but Trump will not be tolerating this.
“After five years of battling with the Obama Department of Labor, states like Texas will now be allowed to drug test folks on unemployment to ensure they are job ready from day one. This is a win for families, workers, job creators, and local economies,” Brady wrote.
