You can get passport cards for 55 bucks

but they only work for Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda. They're 40 bucks for kids.

I agree it's a big expense if you've got a pile of kids, but thats better than 135 for a full passport. Also, if things get bad enough to need to leave the country, I suspect that Canada or Mexico will be the only viable options.
