DiSanto doing same thing over and over, expecting different results

Rep. Lynne DiSanto (RWNJ-35) wants poor people to pee in a cup.
Under the bill, adults applying for cash assistance would complete a screening or questionnaire and would be subjected to a mandatory drug screening. They would not receive the benefit if they test positive. In 2011 and 2012, South Dakota lawmakers rejected bills requiring drug tests for welfare recipients.

She says she's seeking guidance from tribal nations. My guess is they'll give her directions to Sheridan Lake where she can jump in.
Farm subsidies and government-subsidized crop insurance are one of the biggest portions of federal spending in South Dakota. The following shows how they compared with federal spending on other well-known programs or entities in the state in 2012:
Farm subsidies: $720,927,000
Premium subsidized crop insurance: $474,805,350
Highway planning and construction: $323,593,936
Food stamps*: $165,357,967
Ellsworth Air Force Base: $102,400,000<
DiSanto's proposed legislation would do nothing but reinforce SDGOP's hypocrisy on federal dependency. She is leading a crusade against the Rapid City County Commission, too.
