Thom,

This is a petition for Economic Justice! Congressional Republicans just passed a bill requiring Americans collecting unemployment insurance to pass drug tests. They want to tell Americans that 300 dollars a week warrants a drug test. Shouldn't a 700 billion dollar bailout warrant the same? With over 700 billion in tax payer dollars going to the largest banks, investment firms, and mortgage lenders. We feel it is important that the leaders and decision makers within these entities are held to the highest standards. Their decisions impact our national and global economy. It is imperative they they are thinking clearly and logically. The money they spend, loan, and invest is partially taxpayer funded and much of the rest is funded by citizens who've put their trust in these men and women to grow their assets.

Sign, forward, tweet, and support!

Thank You!

Eric

Skip the drug tests for CEO's. Test them for sociopathy:

Um, you realize that the money paid to the banks in the TARP program has been paid back with interest, and with the government making a healthy profit?

There are plenty of companies now that require drug tests as a condition of employment, and when you are taking money out of my kids mouth to look for a job, you better be doing everything you can to get that job.

Drug testing is a no brainer.
