City Council Candidate John Quaglione’s latest proposal just overflows with the milk of human kindness --- Along with estrogen, prolactin, and so much more good mommy & baby stuff --- that JQ says he wants to use >>> OUR TAX MONEY <<< to pay for it [if not through NYS Medicaid, then from the City's Treasury]
How much of a “squishy” progressive or liberal Republican does John
Quaglione want to be ? ? ?
I didn’t think that Quags could have topped his call for the
city to establish an Independent
Theater Week; however, maybe
he just did ! ! ! --- Now, he wants the City to pay the cost of
getting real fresh from the breast mom’s milk for the people who can’t afford it
According to a Paula Katinas story in the Brooklyn Eagle --- John Quaglione, says that there was a plan to have New York State use Medicaid funds to cover breast milk in the same way baby formula is covered, but it's stalled in Albany. Perhaps as part of his now-obvious strategy of being the most squishy Republican candidate in this City Council race, John Quaglione has lashed out at people like State Senator Martin Golden and others in Albany. Quaglione says that this milk from moms proposal has been shot down in Albany; and he’s calling on the New York City Council and the NYC Department of Health to pick up the tab (See “Quaglione says breast milk needed for premature babies” by Paula Katinas, 3/31/17, Brooklyn Daily Eagle [http://www.brooklyneagle.com/articles/2017/3/31/quaglione-says-breast-milk-needed-premature-babies]).
Here’s what JQ had to say in his own words: “This proposal would have allowed Medicaid coverage of breast milk as formula, donated to milk banks, to foster the healthy development of babies born too early. We have to help mothers who cannot produce breast milk and families who cannot afford it for their newborn. The last thing we want is for those who need it to be forced to turn to cheaper, unregulated sources. We already have milk banks throughout New York City, so it makes perfect sense for the city to partner in an effort to magnify the positive results.”
So let me get this straight ! ! ! --- Is Johnny Cakes really saying that all of this stuff --- the breast milk donations and collections, and the milk banks --- already exist, but it would all work a lot better if taxpayer money paid for it for poor people…..
Another entitlement ? ? ? - ! ! ! --- Breast milk for the poor, because baby formula ain't good enough ! ! !
