For my argument paper I plan to write about welfare recipients being drug tested in order in to get their checks. This topic interest me because I think this is a very important factor people should look into and consider when giving out welfare checks to people. There are two sides to this argument, the side I am taking is that people who get welfare checks should be drug tested in order to receive the checks. To support my argument I will talk about people using the welfare checks to enable their drug problems. Also the money given to people who receive the checks is from tax paying people, the people who pay their taxes donít want their money being spent on illegal drugs. Tax payers want to think the money they are paying helps the community and does good for the people, people get angry and donít want to pay their taxes if they think their money is going towards someoneís drug addiction. I think it would also benefit the people who are receiving welfare because if they know they have to pass a drug test to get their check it will encourage to stay away from drugs so they can get their money. The counter argument would be that people who receive welfare checks should not have to get drug tested to receive their check. People support this by saying making people take a drug test is demeaning and we canít force them to take the test. They also say that it is the right thing to do to help out the less fortunate by giving them these welfare checks and what they spend the money on is up to the recipient and the recipientís family. Another approach is that drug testing these welfare recipients encourages people to form bad opinions about the unemployed and gives them a reputation they donít deserve. Paying for the drug test is also another reason people think the drug test are unnecessary, people say that you are spending and wasting more money by drug testing all the people who receive a welfare check. This is what I plan to write my paper about and the side I plan to take on my topic.
