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!

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.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

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

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

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

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Former Alaska Gov.

The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

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

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

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
