Earlier this week, the Senate voted to deal the death blow to one of Barack Obama’s regulations that basically defined his entire presidency.
Throughout his tenure in office, the welfare rolls in America swelled to record numbers as Obama and his fellow Democrats made it increasingly easy to receive government benefits. At the same time, any efforts to means test the handouts was met with fierce opposition from the left, who basically like giving away other people’s money to make Americans dependent on government.
That was then, this is now, and now the Senate is bringing some sense back to our welfare system.
From Western Journalism:
The Senate on Tuesday dealt the final legislative blow to an Obama-era regulation that limited drug testing for individuals seeking unemployment benefits.
The measure, which used the Congressional Review Act’s powers to undo the regulation approved last summer, passed along party lines 51-48. President Donald Trump is expected to sign the legislation, which cleared the House last month.
A 2012 law had said states could only give individuals drug tests when they sought unemployment benefits if they were previously fired for drug use or worked in jobs where drug testing was common.
Boom. Excellent job.
