Food stamps are government provided subsidy vouchers or coupons utilized to purchase nutritionally adequate food. These vouchers are provided to low-income individuals and households as a supplement to their income to assist them with affording these purchases. The federal government aids and pays for the Food Stamp Program currently known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Managed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through the state welfare offices, SNAP is one of the major offered nutrition assistance programs available. The Food Stamp Program (FSP) was developed and initiated in 1939 by Secretary of Agriculture, Henry Wallace.
Close to $1,000,000,000 is used on drugs and alcohol, out of the $1,000,000,000,000,000 we spend on welfare. Since 2008 the welfare system has increased an extreme amount, we need to decrease this with one solution. Background check and drug testing are a necessary part of the welfare system due to using the taxpayers money. We need to reinforce our welfare system,inform people where their money is going, ensure that the taxpayers money is not being used on drugs and alcohol, and make sure we are not providing criminals or drug users with money; however we need to limit the spending by background checking. The American welfare system is broken and unconstitutional and we need to make it great
The welfare money comes out of the money taxpayers pay in. However many people question whether the money is being misused or not. Although people may misuse the welfare assistance for drugs or to support a drug habit, there are many families who make use from the money they are given therefore drug testing welfare patients should not be mandatory. Historically, many people around the United States have
Medicare Part A and B are provided by the federal government. Many times your social security will automatically enroll you in Part A (hospital coverage), but you will have to enroll in Part B (medical coverage) with a premium monthly rate. There are several parts to the program. Medicare does not cover everything and things such as prescription drugs are going to be out of pocket costs.

Anyone can become a organ donor, though children must have a parents consent to become an organ donor. The American Transplant Foundation states that around 116,000 people in the United States are currently on the waiting list for a lifesaving organ transplant.

Who is eligible for Medicare? Did you know that all Americans who have attained the age of 65 and above are entitled to a health insurance that is offered by the Federal government? Young people who have disabilities or kidney failure complications can also be eligible to benefit from this insurance. This type of federal health cover assists in reducing the cost of health care, but cannot entirely cover all the costs in case long-term care is required. People are given an option to choose how to obtain Medicare coverage.

Since medical professionals prescribed narcotics, they also had to register and pay the fee annually or they would be punished. Medical professionals could only prescribe these drugs for medical reasons and they had to possess records of distribution to patients for two years. However, it was not considered appropriate to prescribe a narcotic drug to treat an addiction, which was troubling for both medical professionals and addicts. The Harrison Act contributed to a large number of medical professionals being either indicted on narcotic charges or being forced to face prison sentences. This particular Act also transformed the way in which narcotics could be
People who use the money they receive on things not necessary for their families constitutes as abusing their aid. Lawmakers and the public alike state that drug testing might be beneficial to prevent tax money from being funneled into illegal activity it does not guarantee that these people will not spend their money on other legal recreational activities and substances. Finally, lawmakers have yet to determine what the restriction and punishments should be for those who can not or have not passed their drug tests. The degree of punishment that would be indicative of a possible rehabilitation of the individual without also punishing the children of that home (Pollack,2006). Each of these reasons is a primary cause of the controversy that have prevented most states from enforcing drug testing before receiving benefits.
What if I had overdosed from a drug and my life was taken at a young age? Reacting then would be too late. You have a choice to support mandatory drug testing or sit back and wait unitl it's to late.

On rare occasions, redistribution is from the less-well-off to the better- off. Redistributive Policies help with: (1) income stabilization, helping to support those who are unemployed and even retired; (2) social welfare, providing either direct payments to individuals or supporting state and local efforts for indigent; and (3) health care programs, such as Medicaid and Medicare. Because majority most of the federal agencies that are highly active in the redistributive area are located in the Department of Health and Human Service (Public Administration: An Action Orientation 7th ed). Redistributive also supports the issue because it promote equality with the lack of low cost healthcare throughout the country many low income families or individuals found it hard to obtain healthcare coverage with redistributive it allow those individuals the opportunity to obtain insurance at expense of the
