SB 1067 — a bill in the Idaho state legislature that would require the Gem State to accept changes to its Child Support Enforcement (CSE) guidelines to bring them into compliance with federal law— has generated a great deal of controversy. While its supporters claim it as necessary to ensure adequate enforcement of child support orders, its opponents object to its undermining of Idaho’s state sovereignty. And this threat comes not only from Washington, but internationally, as well. The law if passed, would mandate that Idaho comply with U.S. participation in the 2007 Hague Convention on the International Recovery of Child Support.
In retrospect, ObamaCare just might be perceived as the high-water mark of liberalism in the United States, because since its passage, Americans faith in government has been falling dramatically.
