(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.

    The bastard Romney got in big trouble saying that 47% didn’t pay federal income tax. It was one of the few honest moments of his life and it is probably worse today. But that doesn’t even cover the whole thing as about 60% of households receive more in benefits than they pay in taxes. This is exacerbated by Obamacare’s tacit income redistribution schemes as well

    Politicians will not be our deliverance. You saw the debacle with the Obamacare-lite plan as a prime example. Politicians and their toadie telling us we can’t undo this because to many people will “lose” their (tax payer) subsidized insurance if we don’t have a replacement. I knew this would be they’re excuse. Of course them disrupting my insurance was perfectly fine.

    I’m one of those actually paying the bills.

    OK, now we know where New Mexico’s Hillary voters came from.

    There’s a growing Conservative/Libertarian/Republican movement here in California – anything in your area?

    Check the vote map. We did pretty well, all in all.
