Objectives. To explore the effect of Medicaid expansion on US infant mortality rate the main cause of high infant mortality rates is poverty and lack of access to health care i have proof to back up this statement Methods. We examined data from 2010 to 2016 and 2014 to 2016 to compare infant mortality rates in states and Washington, DC, that accepted the Affordable Care Act Medicaid expansion (Medicaid expansion states) and states that did not (non–Medicaid expansion states), stratifying data by race/ethnicity.
Results. Mean infant mortality rate in non–Medicaid expansion states rose (6.4 to 6.5) from 2014 to 2016 but declined in Medicaid expansion states (5.9 to 5.6). Mean difference in infant mortality rate in Medicaid expansion versus non–Medicaid expansion states increased from 0.573 (P = .08) in 2014 to 0.838 in 2016 (P = .006) because of smaller declines in non–Medicaid expansion (11.0%) than in Medicaid expansion (15.2%) states. The 14.5% infant mortality rate decline from 11.7 to 10.0 in African American infants in Medicaid expansion states was more than twice that in non–Medicaid expansion states (6.6%: 12.2 to 11.4; P = .012). Medicaid Expansion and Infant Mortality in the United States

i have empathy youve got lots of guns
ideas are bullet proof
Obamcare became the law of the land in 2010, so after Obamacare became the law of the land infant mortatlity rate has INCREASED in the US, (since it has increased, that means that infant mortality rate was LOWER prior to Obamacare
YOUR CONFIRMATION OF WHAT I SAID FROM THE BEGINNING IS BULLETPROOF your words not mine.
Damn man you just entered the realm of CATCH 22
Obamacare became law of the land and INFANT MORTALITY INCREASED according to you.. NOW RUN WITH IT.
Here is an out for you... This study was only in WASHINGTON DC one of the MECCAs of American Socialism and a century of Democrat governance.
