The "Dr. Phil bill", as it's being called, is meant to "start addressing marriages and keeping families together, [if we don't ] then we're never going to be able to fund the social costs in this state of divorced families and separations and that sort of thing," said House Appropriations Committee Chairman Warren Chisum, R-Pampa. "If we'd spend more money on the front end, there'd be less money to spend on the back end."
You remember Chisum, don't you? Gorgeous guy, a lot of heart, who defines marriage as:

Someone should write a letter to his wife - have her occupy him on occasion. Hey, it's one of the responsibilities and rights of marriage, no?
