    the Bushies decided that, in order to keep illegal immigrants from getting Medicaid, no child could be enrolled in Medicaid without a birth certificate-regardless of whether or not the doctors had observed their birth in the US, which, of course, would automatically make them US citizens. Thus, newborns needing NICUs were denied Medicaid, even though they were obviously eligible. Tennessee officials had called to ask about this, and were told there would be absolutely no exceptions. (I heard this on local NPR.) No shame. May God have mercy on their souls.
