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".

My mother managed to be a Rosie the Riveter AND feed her baby, the extended family helped out. To ask the government for help would have been a mortification of monumental proportions.

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!

Shame on you, heartless person that you must be!!

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.

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said.

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

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen.

Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
