Taryn: Why Child Support Bill Vital

Last night, Taryn Thompson received a call from a family friend who challenged her support of the Child Support bill that was torpedoed by the House Judiciary & Rules Committee last Friday. The friend wondered if she was afraid that she'd lose child support payment from her ex, if the irresponsible committee vote held up. Here's Taryn's reply:

"My family is blessed in that I have a great relationship with my ex-husband and I have absolutely no doubt that even if Idaho’s ability to process and enforce child support payments is crippled, I will continue to receive child support. No, sir, I am not worried for myself or my kids. I’m worried for the moms like my own, who never received child support for my brother from another father. I’m worried for the moms who greatly depend on child support to help keep their kids clothed and fed. More here.

Question: Any other questions from the Kool-aid drinkers out there?
