Speaking at a campaign event on Monday, Gov. Scott Walker defended his proposal to require recipients of public benefits to submit to drug testing as being “about compassion.”
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday defended his proposal to require drug tests of people seeking unemployment assistance and food stamps by saying it was an act of compassion, not an attempt to make it harder for people needing help.
“This is really about compassion,” the Republican said. “It’s not about making it hard to get government assistance, it’s about making it easier to get a job.”
For the son of a preacher, Scott Walker sure has a tortured definition of compassion.
