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.

Welcome to Pelosiville.
California will be first in line as we head down the crapper.
Sure, why not? Apparently this is how the residents want their money spent.
Is this country ill or what?
Pay for your own penisectomy.
when it comes to San Francisco, headlines from The Onion from a few years ago become reality !
UN F’n real, even for Queerfrancisco.
Californians... Your hard-earned tax dollars at work!
It’s gonna be ugly when we run out of free stuff.
Your post is spot on.
Throughout my lifetime, California was always a leader in cultural trends.
Hot rods, music, films, space program, education, etc.
Thats 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?
So dykes can now free government addadictomy?

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.
