New mom: Sequester cuts to women´s
center would "break my heart"

CBS News, by Paula Reid

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/2/2013 12:14:51 PM

Theses days, little Kayden is eating like a champ, but a few weeks ago he was malnourished and fighting for his life. "I was scared out of my mind, I was scared out of my mind about his not getting enough," said Kayden´s mother, Cierra Kelley. "He was two days old when I took him to the hospital. He was only two days old, I didn´t know what was going on. So he went to see a lactation specialist at Piedmont health."The lactation specialist is just one of the services available through the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).

I smell a plant. Miranda wouldn´t use the phrase ´grass root level´, that´s a political phrase. She was given a script. And she didn´t follow it to well. Don´t don´t is a don´t.

Republicans want to kill babies.

oh cry me a river, if you can´t feed your children, keep your knees together, it´s not my responsibility to feed you or your spawn, I am so sick of this. It is a decrease in the Increase, the programs will still be funded. SPIT

This is the first of this type article we´ll be reading about for weeks to come, pushed by the media in anticipation of Republicans caving or, in the longer run, losing the House. I wish there were an effective response to it, but we don´t have the media or the money to counter it.

You would think that breast feeding topic would be covered in prenatal visits and in the hospital after the baby was born.

It used to be that way ...

I love it when people who make absolutely NO effort to support their own continued existence (on-line classes, but no mention of a job) have illegitimate children and DEMAND that the rest of us now support them AND their kids. There is a plethora of two- and three-word responses from which to choose. Oops! There goes the blood pressure.

Those pushing this propaganda do not seem to realize how bad it makes everybody look and what a powerful argument it provides for more and bigger cuts in Federal spending. There is no reason in the world for American taxpayers to be picking up the tab for programs like this. I suspect many Americans did not even know they existed before now. There is an incredible amount of fat in the Federal budget that can and should be permanently eliminated. This situation seems like a great place to get started.

First, if this young mother is actually nursing her baby, then kudos to her for that. Nursing a child is not only much better for the baby´s health, but it also saves taxpayers loads of money by sparing us from having to pay for exorbitantly priced "formula."

But beyond that, so much is wrong with this article, it´s hard to know where to start. Agree with #1 that this is a planted story.

But even if the absurdly overfunded WIC program cuts back on "lactation consultants," no big deal:
ANY mother, poor or rich, who needs advice or help with nursing can call the La Leche League for FREE. Members of this organization are more than happy to help, at no charge to the mother or the taxpayer.

Que the violins for poor little Cierra. First and foremost, she is a plant, scripted to the hilt and needs more practice. Second if little miss is so heart broken she needs to have the discussion with Queen Moochie and her brood about taking the food out of the mouth of her little struggling offspring. Double vacations are costly on the tax payers dime...more money for her little Kayden means less ski time on the slopes for Moochie and MiniMoochies and their band of blood sucking leach tag alongs.

Oh, this is just the beginning. Brace yourselves for a flood of similar stories about starving children, nursing home patients tossed out on the streets, families suddenly homeless, entire police and fire departments shutting down, schools closing, planes falling like snowflakes from the skies, polar icecaps melting, forests dying, rivers drying, bridges collapsing, trains derailing, and a plague of locusts. All because of the Republicans.

The sad thing is the number of people who´ll believe the stories.

So what the article is saying is, "Women and minorities hardest hit." Huh, I did not know that. Ironic, too, since those were the groups that voted most heavily for Obama.

I have an answer, though. She could ask to accompany Obama on his next vacation. She could caddy for him and eat the scraps from his table. I suppose they polish off all of the lobster and Kobe beef, but I´ll bet they don´t finish all of their arugula. There ya go, problem solved.

Many Americans are being conditioned to expect others who have "won life´s lottery" to support them ... and an about 2% slowing of an increase brings them out of the woodwork to sing the liberals´ song. Where did the Founders of America write that as soon as anyone is born, that someone has a lien on your lifetime earnings? Right, the Founders didn´t write that,... today´s politicians created that "right" by enticing those who might otherwise steal someone´s earnings to elect said politicians who, for a price (your vote) would steal those earnings "legally", for our "own good". Perhaps soon, some patriots will remember what happens when tyrants institute "Taxation without Representation".

Well, it just breaks my heart to see this black woman who has no job, no husband, and now she gets herself pregnant (all her choices), and she expects the taxpayers to pick up yet another bill for her so that she can know about how to care for a baby. Where is her mother? Where is the boy that got her pregnant? I hope all these programs get scrapped, and maybe Miss poor dumb black girl might look for a job and figure out how she can care for her baby and herself.

I hate to tell you this, but when I worked in WIC offices, I did see this type of problem among lots of women. One little baby was pasty white and obviously very hungry. Mom took her to the dr and he said "Keep trying" to nurse. She came directly to the Health Center. Nurses there showed her how to pump her milk. They bottled it and she fed the baby who slurped it up in about three seconds. Problem was mom´s nipples were inverted and the baby couldn´t latch on. Most of the whiny unhappy babies we saw were breastfed. Just a fact I observed.

My oldest is 25 years old and my youngest is 2 years old. It wasn´t until I had my 7th child in 2008 that I enlisted the help of a lactation consultant...and it made ALL the difference.

Even having nursed my kids since 1988, there was a lot I really didn´t know and when my 7th child had to have surgery at 5 days old and had an 8 day NICU stay, the consultant REALLY helped me in this area. I WISH I had had a L.C. oh so many years before.

Thing is that this sequester is not going to suddenly cut L.C. services. What a crock of fear mongering crap.

To suggest that a poor mother seek help from a volunteer organization is almost as insensitive as suggesting a person with spiritual questions or problems seek out a church. AS IF a priest, rabbi or minister could have valuable advice and is there waiting to help!

I agree with 1, 15, et al. La Leche is free and it truly is "grass roots" -- women helping women, no federal funds involved.

Of course the whole point is to boost the federal budget, isn´t it! Let´s make everyone feel dependent. I would suggest that Emerson´s "Self-Reliance" be made required reading, but with the crappy education being doled out by an army of union goldbricks, most people won´t even comprehend it.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

A church in Grapevine, Texas, is getting into the Easter spirit this week by creating a giant chalk-portrait of Jesus Christ in their parking lot. Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston. According to church spokesman Andy Boyd, the 17,000-square-foot drawing of the face of Jesus took 700 volunteers over 9,100 man-hours to create.

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
