Posted on 09/29/2011 4:37:30 PM PDT by freejohn
A state panel advising Gov. Cuomo wants taxpayers to foot the bill for transgender residents to get sexual-reassignment surgery, allowing them to change their physical characteristics from a man to a woman or woman to man, The Post has learned.
New Yorks costliest-in-the-nation Medicaid program would cover the tab.
Provide Medicaid coverage for transgender surgery/hormone replace-ment therapy and treatment, read the proposal submitted by the state health disparities work group.
The panel is submitting recommendations to Cuomos Medicaid Redesign Team for possible inclusion in the governors budget plan.

Oh HELL no.
Forcing the taxpayers to foot a bill to save a life - ok, I’ll consider that.
But forcing the taxpayers to foot the bill to alter a LIFESTYLE?!?! - oh, Hell no.
Medical care must of necessity be rationed. When people are denied care because of budgetary reasons by “death panels,” the politically favored groups (transgenders) will be taken care of. Of course this will not be covered by the media.
Maybe Chaz Bono(er)should have held off for a while!?
I can understand how transgenders feel, I have every sympathy for them because at times I have felt the same way due to my penis not being long enough. If the State can pay to help these poor sick people change their gender the least they can do is pay for an operation to give me a longer penis./
There must be a lot of people who feel inadequate who would like a cosmetic operation to improve their looks to put their teeth back in their heads ,Make their breasts larger,or round their butts up, perhaps even to grow them some hair on their heads.
Why shouldn’t the State pay to make everyone happy, why should they just spend money to mutilate the genitals of men and women who don’t like what they were born with.
Why discriminate against the husbands who want to turn their frumpy wives into hot soccer moms?
I feel your pain: I’m a lesbian trapped in the body of a man.
LOL, aren’t we all.
I can’t imagine why health insurance/taxes are so expensive. s/
No one should be forced to pay for genital mutilation.
Question.....if a woman decides she was supposed to be born with perfect breasts, a tiny waist and an ample booty, will the taxpayers be funding those cosmetic enhancements, as well?
No. Those services will be performed only if a man decides he was supposed to be born that way. The most a woman can hope for is an "addadicktome".
A.)Normal desire to enhance ones appearance to be more attractive to the opposite sex = bad and will not be tolerated
B.)Abnormal desire to be a completely different sex derived from mental illness = good and must be nurtured
By George, I think you’ve got it.
Memo to GOP: use this in a commercial when Cuomo runs for POTUS in 2016.
