San Francisco to provide transgender surgeries for uninsured
fox ^ | 11-9-12 | ap

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. 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.

Perfect. Let them burn their money on this kind of insane BS and not on building obama socialism.

Sure, why not? Apparently this is how the residents want their money spent.

Your post is spot on.
Throughout my lifetime, California was always a leader in cultural trends.
Hot rods, music, films, space program, education, etc.
That’s still the case, but the trends are all negative now.
Illegals, high taxes, breakdown of the Judeo-Christian culture, welfare, etc.
But sadly they are still an excellent predictor of what the rest of the US will see eventually.

How do they justify this and not pay for Sally’s breast enhancement because of her body dysmorphism, Sammy’ liposuction because he needs to look younger at his sales job or Cymanca ‘s whamarammer enhancement because he needs another job as a gigolo because of the mental trauma of Obamacare.

As a budgetary curiosity, does anyone know the relative costs of F—>M versus M—>F? Is an addadicktome cheaper or more expensive than a peckerectomy?

from 2010:

Beyond reckless / Sacramento, Washington pile up the debt

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2009/dec/24/beyond-reckless-sacramento-washington-pile-debt/

The job growth for state workers contrasts with the loss of 759,000
jobs in California’s private industry in the past 12 months

http://www.mercurynews.com/topstories/ci_12984385?nclick_check=1&forced=true

not to mention gubermint employees and their pensions:

Reform advocates are spotlighting those with extravagant pensions
— $100,000 or more — as a way to get the public’s attention and
emphasize that the current system is unsustainable.

Indeed. A total meltdown.

Might be awhile though. The powers that be have figured out how to kick the can down the road very well. Just look at Europe. They've solved nothing since the debt crisis began, but they've managed to buy more time at will. Eventually the entire house of cards will fall, but it could be a long time.

A lobotomy is cheaper and they wouldn’t give a damn what they are.
