Obama administration withdraws plan to use taxpayer funds for sex-change operations
Fox News ^ | March 30, 2013 | FoxNews.com

The Obama administration has withdrawn a proposal to allow Medicare to pay for sex-change operations.

The policy change was expected to draw criticism from Congress and perhaps taxpayers. However, the Department of Health and Human Services said Friday the proposal was withdrawn until the agency’s appeals board considers a challenge to the federal government’s existing policy that such operations are experimental and should not be covered by Medicare or Medicaid, according to The Hill.

The decision was made during Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Awareness Week, in which Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said President Obama’s Affordable Care Act will help improve health care for such Americans and that the president asked her after the law was enacted to “identify steps” the agency could take to improve such patients’ health and well being.

Weird but true story.

My Dobermann favors women.

He just loves to have them make a fuss over him.
Men, not so much.

I was walking by Sally Beauty Supply with him and the girl who works there came out to love him up.

He was really enjoying the pet-fest when the tranny who also works there came out to see him, too.

Naturally, the dog rushed over to this new ‘woman’ and gave her the obligatory ‘introductory crotch sniff’ and rapidly backed away with what I can only describe as a look of horrified confusion on his face.

“She” then tried to reach out and pet him and he ~growled~ and pulled as far away from ‘her’ as his leash would allow.

Even animals know ‘perverted’ when they see it.

That’s why I’ve had Dobes for almost 40 years.

I totally suck at judging character.

They’re never wrong and always let me know who I should trust...or not.

The Problem with Obamacare is that the Government can change it or change it back on a whim: “The Health Secretary shall...”. This includes abortions, transgendering etc.

Transexuality is a sad science waste & an abomination worse than homosexuality. If a man thinks he is an animal, it’d be bad for Drs. to train the man to behave like an animal, surgically put a fake tail and alter his voice so that he can bark to make him a fake dog or other animal. With transexuality, science has collaborated with rather than try to find a cure for this. Sex changes sadly happen because science knows how to do this. They should make it a crime to do sex changes. For the AMA & APA, it’s wrong for a Dr. to try to help a gay/lesbian who is unhappy about being gay/lesbian to try to be straight but American Medical aSsocation (AMA) think’s it’s Okay to surgically mutilate men and women to make them fake opposite sex members. American Medical Association (AMA) is a bad group and it’s best to distrust what the AMA says. Finally, with Fox News, Fox Host William J. O’Reilly is not our friend & know Fox News like other Mainstream media is not our friend. Fox News isn’t much different than CNN on these topics.
