    9 of the 10 states with the highest child death rate (children ages 1-14) are GOP states, according to The Annie E. Casey Foundation recently released 2010 Kids Count Data Book. The top 10 states with the fewest child deaths reported are all Democratic. Mississippi reported the highest child death rate with 34 per 100,000 children, and Rhode Island reported the fewest with 9 deaths per 100,000.

    Perhaps the GOP might want to rethink that "insurance" thing. Not just "get them born"?

    I would have 3 living children if 2 of them hadn't talked back to their mother.

    I'm thinking Republicans need to be a little more concerned AFTER they get born as they seem to be BEFORE they're born. Don't you agree?

    The states that lost the civil war and were run by carpetbaggers all suffer higher child mortality that the the Yankee states.

    Damn those Yankees, killing off our kids. I knew they were up to something.

    It's a Yankee, carpetbagger, Republican plot that has come to fruition 145 years later. Man, the radical republicans were far sighted.

    Obviously, it's a democratic plot.
