Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore has introduced legislation that would require drug testing for the rich.
It’s called the Top 1% Accountability Act of 2016.
The measure would require taxpayers with itemized deductions of more than $150,000 to submit a clear drug test to the IRS or take a much lower standard deduction when filing their taxes.
Moore said the bill is in response to Republican efforts to drug-test those seeking welfare like food stamps.
As a former welfare recipient herself, Moore said in a statement, “It is my sincere hope that my bill will help eradicate the stigma associated with poverty.”
