San Francisco To Pick Up The Tab for Uninsured Residents' Gender-Reassignment Surgery

Did anybody ask the taxpayers about this?

The commentators at FOX News are going to love this one.

In 2001, San Francisco became the first city in the country to cover the cost of sex change surgeries for transgender city employees. In 2007, it became the first city in the country to provide health care for all uninsured residents through its Healthy San Francisco program.

Now, San Francisco is combining those firsts into yet another pioneering move by becoming the first city in the country to cover the cost of gender reassignment surgeries for its uninsured transgender residents.
