GOP Governors of High Cesarean Rate Southern States Reject Medicaid Offer







By Jill Arnold


From the article "Southern States Turning From Medicare, Risking Women's Health" on September 5, 2012 on Forbes.com:



In the wake of the Supreme Court’s June decision on the Affordable Care Act, the GOP governors of Texas, Florida, South Carolina, Louisiana and Mississippi–all politically opposed to “Obamacare”–were quick to “secede” from the government’s offer to extend Medicaid to anyone living below the cut-off of 133 percent of the federal poverty line.



All of these states have cesarean rates higher than 35%.
