Mitch Daniels: Nothing more contemptible than failing to pay child support

There is no one more contemptible to me than a person who brings a child into this world and then fails to live up to the duties of parenthood. And for those who compound their absence by refusing their court-ordered duty to pay child support, I have eve less respect.

We have raised the percentage of child support collected from about 50% to 58%. We need new tools to make further headway. For instance, a delinquent father who wins money in one of our casinos [must] share the take with his children.
