Ahhh, free health care. This from the Associated Press via Fox News.
The city’s Health Commission voted Tuesday to create a comprehensive program for treating transgender people experiencing mental distress because of the mismatch between their bodies and their gender identities. The vote was announced Thursday.
The idea came out of conversations 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.
Don’t believe for a second that there will not be significant Federal dollars passing through San Francisco’s Health Department to provide these incredibly expensive, wholly unnecessary procedures. Keep this in mind when, in a few short years under Obamacare, your parents, or even you, face rationing of health care. Also keep it in mind when there is further discussion of limiting TRICARE for our Nation’s Veterans, because it costs too much. And when California eventually receives massive infusions of Federal tax dollars to try and stem the hemorrhage of debt and deficit, either before or after bankruptcy.
You wanna do it? I couldn’t care less. Knock yourself out. Making taxpayers foot the bill? That is despicable. Of course, resenting having to pay for Victor/Victoria makes someone a hateful homophobe and a far-Right extremist, I am sure. Elections have consequences. Now comes the reckoning.
