▣ Did I mention Cochran voted against pregnant women?

In the exuberance to show how Thad Cochran voted against the best interest of the middle class, one important vote he took was left out of the discussion.

Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA, offered an amendment that would have allowed pregnant women to be covered under the S-CHIP (Children's Health Insurance) Program. This makes sense as the child more than likely will be covered once he or she is born, and guaranteeing that their mother will get the proper prenatal care will ensure a healthy delivery.

It made sense to Clinton, Obama and McCain, as they voted for the amendment. However, it did not make sense to Cochran as he voted against it.

You would think the senator who represents the state with the highest infant mortality rate in America would support such impactful legislation.

Fortunately, the amendment passed 70-27.
