San Francisco to Offer Taxpayer-Funded Sexual Mutilation

Allowing government to take over healthcare means that the sort of people who run the government will be making the decisions regarding funding priorities. This is good news for anyone who wants to use sexual mutilation to express an advanced state of psychiatric disease, and wants others to pick up the extravagant tab:

San Francisco is preparing to become the first U.S. city to provide and cover the cost of sex reassignment surgeries for uninsured transgender residents.

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. San Francisco already provides transgender residents with hormones, counseling and routine health services, but has stopped short of offering surgical interventions, Public Health Director Barbara Garcia said Thursday after the vote was announced.

The idea for a new program that included surgeries came out of conversations between public health officials and transgender rights [i.e., perks and privileges] advocates who wanted mastectomies, genital reconstructions and other surgeries that are recommended for some transgender people covered under San Francisco’s 5-year-old universal health care plan.

This is just another step forward on the road to taxpayer-funded liberal utopia.

San Francisco in 2001 became the first city in the country to cover sex reassignment surgeries for government employees. Last year, Portland, Ore. did the same. The number of major U.S. companies covering the cost of gender reassignment surgery for transgender workers also doubled last year, reflecting a decades-long push by transgender activists to get insurance companies to treat such surgeries as medically necessary instead of elective procedures.

Indulging the sexually insane with grotesque forms of mutilation may be “medically necessary,” but life-saving surgery for those deemed by bureaurats to be too old to be worth saving will not be, if Britain’s version of socialized medicine is any guide. Even with Helicopter Ben’s magic printing press, there are only so many dollars to go around.

    And now it starts. Last Thur, the Marxist-in-Chief signed a “law” that makes “speech and protest a felony”, if it’s the kind of speech and protest he doesn’t like! And guess what? It was backed by (both) parties!

    Maybe we don’t have enough ammo after all.

    This mess with Gen. Petraeus is turning into a bigger mess with each passing day. Now, another 4-Star is involved with one of the same women.

    And the MSM is all over this story. BTW, when was the last time you heard anyone talking about Benghazi and the slaughter of four Americans? And while we’re asking, when was the last time you heard “Fast & Furious” being talked about?

    You see, distraction and misdirection are still very good tactics if you’re in the Oval Office and you don’t want anyone looking into what you’ve really been doing.

    “The number of major U.S. companies covering the cost of gender reassignment surgery for transgender workers also doubled last year”

    Doubled from what? 1 to 2?

    Makes “Meatless Mondays” take on a whole new meaning.

    Hmmm, taxpayer funded “sexual re-assignment” mutilation, but at the same time outlaw circumcision? OK, I guess that makes sense to moombats.

  • T. R. Ollberg

    Is dudems going to show up and blame this on libertarians and fiscal conservatives as well?

    Looks like Hitlary is getting out of Dodge before the SHTF. Besides, she sees that no one else in this Marxist administration is paying any attention to congress, so why should she.

    Up until Nov.6th, the republicans in congress were mostly irrelevant. Now they are totally irrelevant.

    If we can no longer be heard, I suppose the torches and pitchforks will do the talking.

    Look on the bright side- most transgendered people will be moving to San fransicko to get the chop for free. Also of it is paid for with city taxes then the parts of CA that are still sane don’t have to pony up. OTOH when the money runs out because businesses relocate due to exorbitant city taxes I would love to see the protests from the entitled whiners.

    This story illustrates why we must invest heavily in AIDS research. Not to find a cure, but a faster way of spreading it.

    Also, when this city sponsored Medicaid for malcontents program starts to dry up the budget, reimbursement rates to Dr Hatchett and nurse neuter will as well.

    For years I’ve always felt I was a Scottish Highland Bull.

    I guess we change the title to
    California, the land of fruits and ……….

    The only good news for me I can find in a story like this is, that before my state is forced to by Fed mandate to provide this type of leftist garbage to morally confused adults. It would have fiscally collapsed.

    Perhaps for those that were not able to get a full addadicktome or removal could cause some anger. I mean watch a whole group of chics with dicks rioting could be funny.
