Sis Breaks Down Sims’ Letter

Sisyphus breaks down Rep. Sims' constituency letter, point by point, beginning: "The only sentence that is remotely accurate is the last one."

  • "The committee did not vote to end Child Support Enforcement. Those laws are still in place."--then you clearly did not listen to Yearsley and Keim when they said it would dry up funding if you don't pass it. Your listening capabilities during the hearing seemed to be trained solely to respond to the Agenda 21 dog whistle.
  • "The committee chose to not allow additional international mandates without protections."--the committee did no such thing. The committee killed a bill which had the consequence of drying up funding. There are ample protections in the bill and existing law. More importantly the "protections" of which you speak are to the benefit of deadbeats. And the consequence of your vote means that Idaho children without support would have no means to get it from the delinquent parent.

Question: Anyone want to add to Sisyphus' analysis of Sims' constituency letter?
