There are many reasons why people oppose drug testing welfare recipients. One of those reasons being, drug testing welfare recipients could waste taxpayer’s money. The government would use tax money to administer drug test (Cunha, par. 3). Many taxpayers do not feel like they are obligated to pay for a person’s drug habit (“Editorial: Drug Testing Welfare Recipients Doesn’t Add Up,” par.
Right off the bat, using steroids to better one’s performance is basically cheating. Steroid use is not very good for the player’s overall health and over the years, their bodies will most likely wear down. It takes away the love for the game whether it is baseball or football if one chooses to cheat. Donald M. Hooton, part of the Taylor Hooton Foundation said “Players who use anabolic steroids without a legitimate prescription are breaking the law” (Hooton). To consider the performance of a player who uses steroids equal to a player that doesn’t is plain out unfair.
In chapter two of Money, Greed, and God, Jay W. Richards says that the federal government doesn 't appropriately distribute welfare to those who need it. In addition, Richards says that the government should simply stay out of matters this small because they could be better handled by smaller more locally run organizations. In essence, the federal government is “too big” to know how to help the needy. I completely disagree with this assertion. Although the federal government is big and oblivious to who exactly needs what, it is still a necessary part of the welfare distribution system because of the money it has and all the power needed to deliver said funds.
The TPP allows large pharmaceutical firms to set their medicine prices sovereignly and restricts the availability of low-cost generic drugs in the countries. Therefore, patients are forced to buy the expensive medications provided by those pharmaceutical firms. This will be a crucial problem, especially in developing nations, whose people would not be able to buy these expensive drugs. This can be considered inhumane as it disables people from getting a proper medication when they are sick. With this regulation, sick people would only get sicker because they can’t afford the medications.
Conservatives want aid tied to work and it will be a difficult task to bring all groups together on this subject since the Republicans do not want to raise taxes on the wealthy. Not all U.S. Citizens or legal residents will be able to work due to physical or mental infirmities and Medicaid will continue to care for those people, however, able bodied people should be required to do some sort of work or service in exchange for aid. The aid should also be tied to drug screening and should result in the failure to receive aid if the recipient is found to be an illicit drug user. The mainstay of the reform should be that a person should strive to support themselves. Unauthorized immigration is a volatile subject currently in the news.
This is a clear-cut, easy to see benefit. However, the receivers of several different government handouts, such as farmers, college students, and wealthy home-owner, do not realize they are getting their benefits because we are given them in ways that allow us to tell ourselves that we get nothing. “Political scientist Suzanne Mettler has called this effect the “submerged state” (Badger). Whereas Schaberg provides ample evidence that drug testing welfare recipients is unconstitutional, it is actually Badger’s research on the double standard which convinces me that if those on welfare are drug tested, everyone else receiving benefits from the government should be as
I find it despicable that someone could kill an innocent person just because they want to escape reality with a dangerous drug. Then there is the theory that enemy soldiers are innocent because those people just have different ideals, but that is another paper. This presentation made me think about how different my life would be if I was an opium user. I would never have any money because it would all go to my drug habit. I also would not be in anywhere near as healthy as I am currently.
Not only does shaming people out of eating not work, but it also causes long term harm. Shaming people out of eating much like Nancy Reagan 's ”just say no” campaign, is not effective. The idea of “just say no” was that telling people not to do drugs they will not, similarly telling people not to eat unhealthily will fail to have an effect. Without incentive
The american people, according to John Steinbeck’s article, have not achieve the american Dream because of money and gov actions. One reason that the american’s are not reaching the american dream is money. Money is a reason because “ we americans will buy anything we seen on the T.V.” The other reason that the american is failing is because of gov actions. “a man beaten brutally by the policeman”. I myself buy new a lot of new things advertised
Drug testing particularly in private schools is ineffective due to the fact that the action of testing athlete for consumption of performance enhancing drugs is a state action, therefore federal government needs to become involved in order to operate such actions. Politics behind drug testing is a complex matter, in which it is very difficult to make the right decision and correct actions, which would lead to elimination of performance enhancing drugs from sports. Beside the point that a drug test costs a small amount of money, there are still politics involved behind every drug test, ranging from private school to professional sports clubs. The politicians such as the governments from around the world, which are a part of WADA, decide whether
