New Child Support Debtors Law: Well Intended but Misguided

Old child support debts can prove fatal to those whose only source of income is “Federal Benefits.” Effective next year, according to the new child support law, thousands of poor and disabled men stand to lose their only income because of a change in government policy that will allow states to seize “every dollar of federal benefits from people who owe back child support.

Since last May, states have had the power to freeze Social Security, Disability and Veteran’s Benefits that have been deposited into those accounts.

In an effort to cut down on paperwork, The Treasury Department will start paying benefits electronically next March. Once paper checks are eliminated, about 275,000 people could lose access to all their income, advocates say.

Does this mean that the men who will be affected by this new law will now be entitled to welfare and food stamps?

Will the children involved in the back child support debts actually receive any of this new found fortune? The answer is, “Unfortunately, Not!” Most of the money will go to the government as repayment for welfare previously provided for those children, “not the children of the men with child support issues.”

There are many mitigating circumstances that would prevent a payee from not being current on their payments. Some include but are not limited to un-employment, under-employment, disabled, homeless, and mentally-ill or incarcerated, etc., “One size does not fit all!” Each case should be decided on a case by case basis. “To deprive a human being of any source of income is inhumane and uncivilized.”

This law should be revisited and revised to accommodate every ones’ need and the woman should bear more responsibility than previously given to her. This business of “we made a baby, now! you take care of him/her needs to end.” Both parties should be equally responsible for the childs’ welfare.

The New Child Support Law will only create more chaos and lawsuits, not smooth sailing as anticipated!”

The Congress can’t or won’t or maybe they’re just not capable of balancing the budget!

I can balance the budget in six months. I challenge Congress to work collectively on trying to balance the budget and give me the same paperwork, and without even one assistant I could balance the budget in six months. What do they have to lose? The American People have already lost their confidence in Congress and the White House to lead.

Why would I be successful in balancing the budget in record time? No-one has me in their back pocket because they contributed heavily to my campaign. I don’t have to be anyone’s puppet or front man or woman. The big companies/organizations will not get unfair tax advantages but will be taxed appropriately, like everyone else and all [100 %] pork projects will be automatically deleted bar none.

If Congress can’t get the job done, then they should surrender that responsibility to someone who doesn’t have a hidden agenda, but is capable of delivering on their word. The task is surmountable but achievable. “God don’t move that mountain but give me the strength to climb!” “I’ve already seen myself on the top of the highest mountain with the U.S. debt under my feet!”

Congress can’t balance the budget because they have too many individuals with their hands in the wrong cookie jar and everybody wants to be recognized for their two seconds of work. I don’t want to be recognized, I just want the d**n budget issued resolved so that this country can move forward in a positive light.

Don’t worry! I won’t go on vacation in the middle of one of the worst financial disasters in U.S. history! I’ll dig in and keep adding and subtracting and deleting my way to a balance budget with a positive cash flow for future endeavors. Oh! I failed to mention that Social Security, Medicaid/Medicare and the Military Payroll will remain intact or actually be tweaked upward from savings in other areas. The money is there! It’s just misappropriated, mismanaged, hidden under dummy accounts and co-mingled from the top to the bottom.

“Now, when can I start?”
