If they did that then the state wide public assitance program wouod be a bust and there would be alot of people laid off from the state. The bailout thing ray would be good, but I hihly doubt anyone would intiate that sort of renue. Evertime a person goes on public assitance all rthe back child support owed to the family is "caught" in the states web. You can go on cash assitance for one month, receive maybe between 823.00 / 923.00 depending on the size of your family, but the deabeat parent who has paid in years owes you 45k, the state keeps that amount. Shady but true, it happened 2 alot of people and is still ongoing...
