Katrina could result in policy reform

Louisiana and Mississippi voters have stark choices to make. Until Katrina they financed government by what amounted to a free ride for the taxpayers with gambling taxes and truely massive federal child support collection subsidies. The casinos are gone and the economy is so devastated huge numbers of divorced fathers with child support obligations lost their jobs. Federal child support subsidies depend on the amount collected.

Bread and circuses masquerading as rational public policy just won't fly anymore.
