And the poor get poorer ...
Federal and state spending cuts would slash $240 million from Texas' child support program over the next two years and force as many as 1,800 job cuts, Attorney General Greg Abbott said Friday.
The loss of funding and staff would cause a "dramatic" drop – nearly $2 billion – in child support collections, Abbott said. His office's budget request for 2008-09 appealed for state lawmakers to fill the funding gap.
In other words, the Bush crowd supports traditional marriage and families so long as it does not cost anything. Or is it that the families of the poor are less valuable than those of the insulated suburban and big money backers of Bush?
