Let's make sense of the numbers using the 2 links.
We have 7028 recipients - but, children are not tested. Which drops eligible testing to 5,726 (4,086 that took it, 40 that agreed but then did not show up, and 1,600 that opted out).
So, if we assume the opt out and the 'changed mind' crowd did so because they were using drugs, the number of adult recipients that would have failed had they taken the test is 1,748 (1,600 opt outs, 40 that changed their mind, and 108 fails).
So, the number of drug users implied = 30.5% of the adult recipients.
What would the savings be with the opt outs?
From the NYT article, the average savings for a positive test was $489. So, $854,630 was saved in payments to drug users. This came against $119,000 in cost for paying the non-drug user $30 for passing.
So, this program saved money for the state and defunded drug users - which is why the Dems were so mad about it. So, they want to lie and say only 3% of welfare recipients are on drugs as they ignore the 1640 opt outs. Just out and out dishonest people like Corky that have no shame.
