Sex changes

Welcome to obamaWorld


In the midst of cash-strapped Californians approving new taxes to prevent further cuts in essential state services, San Francisco health officials appear to have found the money to fund what they say is a much-needed service to residents living in the City by the Bay:

Sex changes.

The gender-switching surgeries are part of a comprehensive program for treating transgender people that the city’s Health Commission green-lighted on Tuesday and announced two days later. Backers say it will help ease the mental anguish of people who feel they are trapped in bodies of the wrong gender, but critics wonder why the taxpayers should foot the bill.

“Taxpayers cannot afford this, as there are unintended costs and unintended consequences unrelated to the actual surgery, such as their longer-term hormone treatment, psychology needs and other longer term health issues,” said Thomas Moyer, a City by the Bay resident and author of “A Conservative Survival Guide to San Francisco.”

Under Mayor Ed Lee, the city’s current budget topped $7 billion for the first time in history this year. In addition to the local tax burden, residents have seen their cash-strapped state slash an array of services.

The idea of taxpayer-funded sex change operations came out of talks between public health officials and transgender rights advocates who wanted mastectomies, genital reconstructions and other surgeries covered under San Francisco’s universal health care program. City

Public Health Director Barbara Garcia said the program could be in operation late next year, once her department has studied how many people it would serve, how much it would cost and who would perform the surgeries.

I got a check from my company today. $374 for a health care rebate. Evidently my health insurance company didn't spend enough on health care. So, I get some of my money back. thanks to Obamacare. Cool!

If the OP is true, that is a total crock IMHO; and it won't stand. However....

What?! How dare you, sir, deprive that health insurance company executives of their bonuses! Why, heck, they may have to make that President Day week ski trip to Summit county, Colorado instead of the Swiss Alps this year!!! Oh, the greed and inhumanity of it all!

Yeah, pulling billions out of Medicare that people have paid in sure makes it worth it.

Must have those sex changes, but a child that hasn't been educated yet may not get what he needs, since it may not be a good government investment.

This has nothing to do with the Affordable Care Act or Obama. Just because you dislike something city officials decide to spend money on doesn't mean it's Obama's decision.

I think I saw Obama at our local municipal airport last night. He said that he was personally going to SF to perform the surgeries. I don't know for sure though. It was a black guy. They all look alike.

If you don't live in San Francisco, I don't know why you'd care about this.

HCF is still sore about the election; delusions of granduer lead to conflation, hyperbole, and hyper-ventalition as the RWNJs prepare for their move to Canada...I'm surprised he still has internet connections, because that would be contributing to the economic vitality of Obama's America--and no up-standing tea-party minion would chance that.

Dude has an almost magical level of powers now.
