    Having the ability to pay more does not equate to the need to pay more.

    People forget that the wealthy often have higher costs to maintain, such as, gee, employing millions of people and paying for the operations of entire companies. But that is just a minor issue, of course.

    And that is the reward they get if they run a profitable business that provides millions of people with what they want. Boy these companies are so evil for providing us with the internet, search services, ways to monetize our blogs, incredibly advanced phones, books, food, clothes, tvs, cars...how DARE they make a profit by providing hundreds of millions of people with these things!. That is THEFT!

    Oh wait. There is no theft. Its called free exchange. We get great gadgets which we could never in a million years produce alone, and they get our money for providing us with that service. Do you think Steve Jobs is evil for creating and supplying the world with some of the best computer hardware and software in existence? When you sell to millions of people you get millions of dollars. Its basic mathematics. They only have millions of dollars because they have provided millions of people with goods and services that improve their lives immensely. And yes, that is worth at least 20 million dollars.

    The article neglects to mention food, shelter, etc. All of the child support goes to the care of the child, as it should be, not stuffed in mama's pocket

    Should a child and his mother be reduced to poverty if the "French billionaire Francois Henri-Pinault....who is the father of Ms. Evangelista’s four-year-old son, Augustin James."? ...Ms. Evangelista argues that $46,000 is the minimum required to provide for young Augustin in the manner to which he has grown accustomed."?

    True, $46k may be a years wage to the unwashed masses, but these people are not in the unwashed mass category!!

    I have to say this is bullshat, a child does not "need" $46,000 child support. I like the child support system they have here in Germany where I'm stationed, child support paid on a scale, I think the highest a person must pay is maybe 1500 dollars a month, anything beyond that is up to the person paying. In the US people pay 50 and 60 thousand dollars, thats facking dumb, with that kind of money the other parent often doesn't do shat except live fat of that money, parenting and providing for the child is a two parent thing.
