If ever anyone needed an argument to prove why policy supporting marriage and family is necessary, $3 billion in Texas would be that argument. Not to mention the emotional and psychological harms to children and the struggle of single parents (mostly mothers). THIS recent report didn’t even splurge upon the humanitarian concerns that should be a consideration in promoting parental and spousal responsibility, because the economics alone are impacting enough to strike a chord. TAKE A LOOK at the report to see how Texas tax burden is faring in the ranks, but take hope! Texas is the only state mentioned that’s taken positive measures—like $15 million from the Texas Assistance to Needy Families—to protect marriage. This could be the most cost-effective form of welfare yet.
