Gwen Moore

With more and more politicians — including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — calling for welfare recipients to pass drug tests, U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wisconsin) is looking to turn the tables.

She wants to make sure the wealthiest Americans aren’t spending their tax breaks on drugs.

“As a strong advocate for social programs aimed at combating poverty, it deeply offends me that there is such a deep stigma surrounding those who depend on government benefits, especially as a former welfare recipient,” Moore said in a statement. “Sadly, Republicans across the country continue to implement discriminatory policies that criminalize the less fortunate and perpetuate false narratives about the most vulnerable among us. These laws serve only one purpose: stoking the most extreme sentiments and misguided notions of the conservative movement.”

On Thursday, Moore introduced the Top 1% Accountability Act of 2016, requiring drug testing for all tax filers claiming itemized deductions in any year over $150,000.

“My legislation would require taxpayers with itemized deductions of more than $150,000 to submit to the IRS a clear drug test, or take the much lower standard deduction when filing their taxes,” Moore said. “It is my sincere hope that my bill will help eradicate the stigma associated with poverty and engage the American public in a substantive dialogue regarding the struggles of working- and middle-class families.”

No word on when or whether the bill will come up for a vote.
