Child support guidelines are too high

The Glenn Sacks show has an economist who says:
Child support guidelines currently in use by the U.S. states typically generate awards that are three to four times what they should be if based on economically sound cost tables and on a true equal duty of support standard for both parents.
A lot of people think that child support has to be spent supporting children. It is mostly just a tax on fathers to support mothers.
