Deadbeat parents cost taxpayers $53 billion

There are 69 comments on the money.cnn.com story from Nov 5, 2012, titled Deadbeat parents cost taxpayers $53 billion. In it, money.cnn.com reports that:

Over $100 billion is owed in unpaid child support -- nearly half of that to taxpayers supporting children on public assistance.

With SSM such a big issue this year, with four States voting on SSM, and with the focus of the anti gay forces on "the good of the children", I think we should look at how focused the religious right is in actually helping the children most in need.

According to the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement, $108 billion in total back payments was owed to parents with custody of children in 2009. If those payments aren't made and the children then need to go on public assistance, payments are supposed to be made to the government in the form of reimbursement. About 49% of that back money -- or roughly $53 billion -- is owed to the government, according to Joan Entmacher, vice president of family & economic security of the National Women's Law Center.

Red herring, an anomaly.
The overwhelming number of crimes against children are performed by str8s, and in a higher percentage than those committed by gay-identified people. The stats are everywhere to be read.
It's not a red herring or anomaly. It's another of Jr. Esq.'s bald faced lies.

He claimed the article was suppressed by the gay community. Yet the source for the story was a gay newspaper!

Junior is your nose getting longer?

Not all straight parents are bad either, but you gays try to make it appear so.
Wrong. I have 4 sisters. Also a married brother. I'd say it's about 70% to 30% in favor of the good parents I know when it comes to which ones are good parents and which ones are nuts.

Hopefully someday you'll understand that your lies may have cost you the election.

Your lack of concern for children, and your focus on worldly riches speaks volumes about your moral compass.

<quoted text>correction. The thread you listed was posted by roboblogger and comes from a gay magazine article. It wasn't the same source I posted.
Weren't a few versions of the story from different sources get posted? I seem to remember them.

Yes I'm pretty sure there were at least three versions from various sources.

Often the one picked up by roboblogger gets more exposure than the others from individual forums.

But the fact that this troll claimed the GLBT community was trying to cover it up, when the source of his story was one of the nation's largest Gay Newspapers just goes to show how dishonest that person is.

Oh yea he's a total POS. He likes to play young and innocent at first, then becomes bigoted (Almost as bad a NoiQ)and thinks he's an articulate lawyer.

The saying goes,"The devil is in the details", but it would seem that it's in MISSING the details.
