In 24 States, 50 percent or more of babies are born on Medicaid


(CNSNews.com) – In 24 of the nation’s 50 states at least half of the babies born during the latest year on record had their births paid for by Medicaid, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

New Mexico led all states with 72 percent of the babies born there in 2015 having their births covered by Medicaid.

Arkansas ranked second with 67 percent; Louisiana ranked third with 65 percent; and three states—Mississippi, Nevada and Wisconsin—tied for fourth place with 64 percent of babies born there covered by Medicaid.

New Hampshire earned the distinction of having the smallest percentage of babies born on Medicaid. In that state, Medicaid paid for the births of only 27 percent of the babies born in 2015.

Virginia and Utah tied for the next to last position, with 31 percent of the babies born on Medicaid.

    I’m shocked the percentages are not higher. The white teenage girls around here are popping out the illegitimate babies like a hot pot of popcorn. I know one girl who had her first. Then she miscarried number two, Number three was overseen by an expensive specialist due to the miscarriage of number 2. Number 3 followed (thanks to the expensive specialist.). All kids by three different men. Kids one and two are being raised now by the mother of dad number one, and number three father now has complete custody of his kid.

    I’ll have to say that the fathers seem to be more interested in the proper upbringing of the kids then the “mother.”

    I have been thinking lately about the devaluation of labor. In the 70’s the feminists were outraged that a young man with a high school education could get paid more than a young woman with a college degree. Now that these “wimmin” are in their latter years I hope that they appreciate (and compensate appropriately) the strong backs that are doing for them what they cannot do for themselves. I also would love to see an analysis of how many of the entitled are relatively new residents to this nation. Much of our contemporary workforce appears to me to be the equivalent of slave labor without the benefit of having a listing as an asset to the corporation. We waste a lot of human capital – a lot of good minds. Sure there’s intentional abusers but there’s not much opportunity to grow and move up these days – especially if you come from a low resource beginnings. For many the only chance they have to acquire the funding needed to get where they want to go is to engage in criminal activity. We have a huge mess but I am not interested in blaming the victims – there’s something wrong with routinely underpaying employees and overcharging clients just to erect some ostentatious structure celebrating your ruthlessness while getting kudos and financial breaks for building charitable schools and hospitals in foreign lands.

      People can get to where they want to go without engaging in criminal activity. It is a struggle but many can and do move on with their lives.

        I hope that you are correct but we’re not seeing it. My dual citizen friends that owned property and businesses in both nations somehow got Medicaid for a time and I learned that our government is obligated to maintain the standard of care that they receiving prior. They got care that I didn’t think was covered by any insurance in our nation – much less Medicaid. It’s well known in my area that the government has the right to take your property in exchange for the care but it didn’t happen to them. ??? Likewise I’m aware that our corporations do a form of outreach to “immigrant” populations that aren’t available to citizens. For example, several times per year free brand new brand name clothing is distributed in certain communities like clockwork. Some “immigrants” are gifted the opportunity to sell certain brand name items off their vehicle for years on end. They have a specific route for their neighborhood (the immigrant hood) and it’s a long-term job. In this manner the corporations welcome “immigrants” while still charging us “citizens” top dollar. ‘Splains much of their attitude. Also ‘splains mine.

    I am glad to see my state still has the live free or die attitude (at least to a point) but the fact that New Hampshire still has over a quarter of the babies being born on Medicaid shows us how deeply this is now ingrained into the minds of the people. This is going to be very hard, if not impossible, to fix.

    I agree with you, Bunk! Too many have no self-control or common sense. If you can’t take care of a family, don’t have one. Get your life together before you ruin others! But that requires too much work when you can sit back and collect all those entitlements from Uncle Sam….. I’m all for helping folks get a leg up, but not for supporting them and their children and their children’s children…..

    Unfort. Bunk, most of us can not afford real insurance. Ok, here goes a little rant…Most of us live on or below poverty level (for whatever reason(s)), the high cost(s) of this and that etc…the price of food lately…most of us work 2 or more jobs to just meet our basic needs. It use to be, “Just go where the jobs are.” Now, its just maintaining a job, period.

    Sigh, I’m afraid, its just the sign of the times, my friend.

      The trick to it is you don’t go out and have a dozen kids when one is struggling. I have no problem taking care of people. I do have a problem with the government bankrupting hospitals by not paying them enough to survive. I do have a problem with expecting me to support someones kids that they cannot possibly afford. It traps them into poverty.

        yep…agree…totally…we were discussing this last night. I was looking at it from my perspective, being on the borderline of not being able to afford health care and have to be on Medicaid, hubby on SS, taking his pension and so no…I am so sick of hearing about the illegal aliens. Why should they be allowed to corrupt our system? Get SS, Get food stamps and so on, when regular folks cant. (don’t get me going)

        Then they turn the rug rats into the streets where they grow up as problems for communities, police, court systems, and taxpayers. The young savages, end up reproducing like cockroaches. They also end up due to low IQ, with their own lives ended in their teens and twenties.
        Riding in a patrol car for years and years. All weather. All hours, day and night. Certain things become obvious and amiss. Namely, there are very few old black and hispanic men in ghettos. The causes are, the nine millimeter, the liquor bottle, the prison, and the hypodermic syringe.
