Obama Judge Rules Medicaid Must Pay for Transgender Sex Reassignment Surgery


In a recently issued ruling U.S. District Judge William M. Conley writes that Medicaid, the publicly funded insurance that covers 65.7 million poor people, cannot deny the medical treatment needs of those suffering from “gender dysphoria.” Officials estimate it will cost up to $1.2 million annually to provide transgender Medicaid recipients in the Badger State with treatments such as “gender confirmation” surgery, including elective mastectomies, hysterectomies, genital reconstruction and breast augmentation. The intricate operations are typically done by plastic surgeons.

The ruling culminates a lawsuit filed more than a year ago by two transgender Wisconsinites, who accuse the federal and state-funded insurance program of providing them with disparate and inferior health care on the basis of sex. Cody Flack of Green Bay and Sara Makenzie of Baraboo say they suffer from severe gender dysphoria that requires costly surgery. Flack, a woman, claims to be ashamed of her breasts and wants to have them surgically removed as she transitions into a man’s body.

To make a case for the government to pay for her surgery, she claims that she engages in “binding,” which flattens her breasts and causes sores, skin irritation and respiratory distress. Flack also has difficulty binding her breasts due to a disability, according to court documents. Makenzie, a man who legally changed his name to Sara and wears women’s clothing, says his “male-appearing genitalia” causes him “great distress” and negatively affects his sexuality and social life. Showering and seeing his body in a mirror is “painful,” court records state, and Makenzie fears someone will be able to see his “male genitals” through his clothing.

  1. Seems to me it would make more sense to just instal stainless-steel snap fasteners to accommodate which ever way they feel in the morning…

    Just like Mr Potato Head, only now with a body!

  2. Does Medicaid also pay for an extended lockup in a Mental Institution for the Judge that made this insane ruling?

  3. easy to spend other people’s money.

    what did these people do before modern medicine?

    Obama gave a speech about being cost effective and just give grandma a pill instead of a costly surgery. well, give these people a pill.

  4. Well this should hasten the end of Medicaid.
    With Medicaid expansion, hundreds of thousands of able bodied now get free medical care, mentally disturbed parents will be clamoring to “move the process along” for their gender-fluid kids, and the dems offering free healthcare for all illegals.

  5. If sexual preference isn’t chosen and homosexuality is 100% normal, then logically the anus must already be completely equal and equivalent to the vagina for sexual purposes.

    So why do sodomites need to “become” women?

  6. Under this “logic”, what surgery would not be covered? My bad teeth cause me distress. I demand 32 implants. Breast augmentation or any plastic surgery would have to be covered. Hell, You could demand to have wildebeast leg transplants.

  7. The rulings by Obama-appointed judges are so consistently anti-logical and anti-Constitutional as to justify blanket impeachment of all of them.

    They are merely the extension of the communist based ACLU’s lawfare campaign to destroy the United States of America.

    It is time for action.

    Just sayin’.

  8. I noticed that the cost references surgery but not the litany of forever hormone replacement therapy, etc. That Medicaid number is extremely false. They lie.

  9. …you can tell that even the “Transgenders” KNOW the “Trangender” thing is a lie, because if they TRULY believed they WERE women, they would not WANT to publicize the FACT that they have fake parts.

    BUT, since a HUGE part of the “Transgender” movement is ANNOUNCING you are NOT what you spent SO much of other people’s money to LOOK like, so if THEY’RE not taking it seriously, why should WE?

    …also, seriously, it doesn’t work, it NEVER looks like a woman, it only looks like a mutilated man, there are simply too many differences due to genetics that go SO far beyond merely cutting and pasting breasts and penises that there is no WAY Man can make a convincing fraud of God’s work…


    …unless you’re drunk as Danny Partridge, that is…


  10. can everyone require medicaid to make their delusions seem more real?
    right now i’m having a delusion that imma having sex with a big busted hooker in the finest whorehouse in the world. i think medicare should pay for it to make it happen.

  11. “… suffer from severe gender dysphoria that requires costly surgery.”

    Requires? No indeed, this is elective surgery. It is mental derangement driven medical mutilation.

  12. Medicare was not desigined to pay for elective cosmetic surgery. The judge is free to pay for as many is he likes.

  13. The government needs to appeal this all the way to SCOTUS if necessary where, with a little luck, it will be reversed. In the meantime keep a close eye on that Judge and his rulings. Who knows what else the socialist plant will make a bad ruling on.

  14. I’ve heard theories that when societies go matriarchal, many males choose effeminacy, faggotry or cuckitude to bring themselves closer to what they believe is the established power hierarchy. Trannies are just the extreme perversion of that trend.

  15. Why not spring for one overdose of Oxycodone. These surgeries inevitably lead to suicide — something deep inside the “patient” suddenly realizes that it just did something horrible to ?-self and goes off the deepend

    Would be a whole lot cheaper … and less painful
