    The decline of the USA can ultimately be traced back to this. People having babies that they cannot afford and will not parent... The people who are voting away our freedoms are making the producers pay for their children who will further support our loss of freedoms and the growth of welfare state. Bizarro World.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/09/08/Almost-Half-of-U-S-Births-Covered-by-Medicaid

    According to researchers from the George Washington University (GWU) School of Public Health, in 2010, almost half of all births in the United States were paid for by Medicaid, and that rate is only going to go up. Medicaid was responsible for 48% of the 3.8 million births in 2010, an increase of 90,000 births from 2008, which was an 8% increase during that period.

    In New York City in 2009, 76% of Hispanic births were covered by Medicaid, 70% of births in the black community were covered, and 31% of whites.

    The wrong people are multiplying. Many single moms that can't afford to even feed their children. This is what happens when church, and holy matrimony, is the villain.

    This is a serious problem. But if you say we want the parents to provide 100 hours of community service by the childs first birthday they flip out with emotion rather than realizing you are helping someone in a time of need while also hoping to inform them there are serious responsibilities when you create a life.

    The lady who cut my hair this weekend was all upset her kid did not qualify for Medicaid because her parents bought her a new car. I but my lip hearing first hand what our government has created. Instead of her family helping to pay for her child's she would prefer a stranger be forced to. Instead of buying her a new car they could buy a used one and have thousands left over to help their family. But the government has destroyed that concept...

    At least we know that those who can most afford to have children are having them! More Dems coming into the fold.

    I go to the same place and never pick the cutter...

    She was a nice enough lady and I think could be educated. That said first meeting and her having the scissors did not make it the correct time... :)

    the wrong demographic is multiplying. this has been happening for 30 years now and the votes are finally starting to show up. it is only going to get worse unless there is major entitlement reform that requires birth control if you are on public assistance. if you cannot afford what you have, you shouldn't have any more.

    wife and I have 3 kids by age 40, counterpart has 5 kids that all have 4 kids by the time the counterpart on permanent gubmnt assistance reaches 40.

    my 3 kids will vote against those 25 kids. the numbers just don't don't work

    A huge portion of the percentage is of course illegal immigrants.

    When one sees stats like this it makes one take pause re the abortion issue. But then again, personal responsibility (or lack of it) is why one is in a position where abortion needs to be considered. I do believe the abortion issue is a much greater issue than any of us realize.

    We should adopt China's family planning policy so we can get back on track to becoming the America we all want.

    If your concern is that abortion is not being used enough then might I suggest sterilization of the mother as part of the subsidized birth of her first child rather than promoting abortion to women whom won't use it or wait until the last couple months of pregnancy to use it. You get one child on the taxpayer and that's it. No additional welfare after the first child.

    Sterilization may be harsh but the no additional welfare after the first child would be a good policy. Except you will have people violate...I guess adoption at birth.

    Just don't know how you legislate "stupid" but we have to start trying because they all vote for free chit, which means democrat.

    On my way home from work tonight and every night after an 11 hour day I'm going to pass an electronic billboard with and advertisement from the local medicaid hospital showing off the new baby that was born that day. It makes me mad that I have to pay for someone else to have a baby. What a crooked country we now live in.

    Something does not add up. Only 5 states with a percentage over 48% which is what the study by George Washington cits as the number. And small states for that matter.

    That's why I said those numbers are older, when the national average was 38 percent. From 2001.
