Dead Beat Collections: $71.5M Since ‘10

The U.S. Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service has released its annual report today on the Treasury Offset Program, or TOP, Delinquent Debt Collection’s work in 2014. Never heard of it? Among its findings: Idaho recovered $13.4 million in delinquent child support payments through the program in 2014. Since 2010, the federal-state partnership program has collected $71.5 million in delinquent child support payments for Idaho/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Who needs $71.5 million in delinquent child support payments when the Syrians are storming Twin Falls and Sharia law is about to be impose on Idaho. It's a small price to pay, in terms of single-parent misery, to be free, right?
