Just in case you, like many in Congress, didn’t READ the several thousand pages of Obama’s new socialist plan for your health coverage, the article linked below points out a few facts I think you might find of interest.
How will all these new Latinas get coverage? YOU, legal citizen, will be paying for it – via the penalties the Fed – with the long arm of the DOJ and the IRS, will zap right out of your bank account.
“In 2009, the U.S. Census Bureau found that over 1-in-4 Latino adults (26.4%) and almost half of Latino children (49.4% or approximately 8.6 million children) depend on Medicaid and/or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to access their health care.
Under health care reform, Medicaid eligibility will be expanded and over 6 million Latinos stand poised to achieve access to health coverage through these programs jointly financed by the federal and state governments.”
Had enough US taxpayer? Well, Obama hasn’t given them enough yet…there’s more…
Medicaid covers a wide range of health services for Latinas of reproductive age.
Family planning services are explicitly mandated for coverage under Medicaid at no additional cost to patients. They include:
+ contraceptive services and supplies
+ STI testing, treatment, and counseling
+ Pap tests
+ Maternity care services covered under Medicaid include:
+ Prenatal care, including prenatal supplements, ultrasounds, and amniocentesis screening
And just in case that doesn’t do enough for all those who appear to be nearly constantly pregnant:
+ Childbirth including vaginal and C-section deliveries
+ Postpartum care for sixty days
+ Smoking cessation treatments
