Transgender Patients Angry Wisconsin Medicaid Doesn’t Cover Reassignment Surgery, Sue State

Published

Under Wisconsin’s current Medicaid program, reassignment surgery for transgender patients is not covered, a fact that has many in the LGBT community absolutely furious.

In response to what many feel is unfair exclusion, a lawsuit by two residents has been filed against the state health department.

The lawsuit states that excluding transgender reassignment surgery “flies in the face of the medical consensus that gender-confirming medical care is the only safe and effective medical treatment for gender dysphoria, and wholly disregards the harms of denying transgender people access to critical and often life-saving care.”

The plaintiffs in the lawsuit are Cody Flack and Sara Makenzie. Flack is a 30-year-old transgender man, and Makenzie is a 41-year-old transgender woman.

Both of them rely on federal benefits for their basic needs, including health care. They both have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria, meaning they have been diagnosed as having a gender identity that conflicts with their biological sex.

They have already gone through some gender transitions such as hormone therapy, and want to get gender reassignment surgery, having received recommendations from their doctors to do so in order to “alleviate their ongoing symptoms of gender dysphoria.”

Neither of them can afford the out-of-pocket cost for gender reassignment surgery, but a state regulation “expressly prohibits Wisconsin Medicaid coverage for ‘transsexual surgery’ or ‘drugs, including hormone therapy, associated with transsexual surgery or medically unnecessary alterations of sexual anatomy or characteristics.”

The two residents claim that excluding this procedure violates the comparability and availability requirements of the Medicaid program, the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, and the Affordable Care Act.

The hope is that the lawsuit will result in the exclusion of gender reassignment surgery from being covered in the Medicaid program being labeled discriminatory, leading to an injunction that will keep the state from enforcing the exclusion.

Oh, and of course, they are seeking some cash for damages related to “economic and non-economic injuries arising from being denied medically necessary health care coverage.”

Kamala Harris’ Ex-Flame Makes WILD Prediction About 2020 Chances

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.

Kamala Harris

As with any election that involves an incumbent President, the other side of the aisle is straining to put as many candidates out in the ether as possible.

This crowding of the democratic race for 2020 will certainly provide the nation with a very intimate look into the differences among the progressive avenues of the left-wing, and will undoubtedly escalate their internal infighting to epic proportions.

There is a very real chance that this could bring the democratic party itself to its knees, as the socialist wing attempts to convert some of the more moderate wings, and with the possibility that the entire organization could be driven hard to the left.

And let’s not forget that the 2016 race created an unfathomable opportunity for the DNC to discover just how to rig their own primaries.  Now that this precedent has been set, trust in the democrats is at an all time low.

So, does Kamala Harris stand a chance?  Her ex-lover doesn’t seem to think so.

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw shade at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:

Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.

[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.

Let’s just hope Democrats can figure out that we need to go beyond the left and motivate voters across the board, just as midterm congressional campaigns did under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.

“Beyond the left” sounds like the surefire end of the democrats as we know it, but there will only be one way to know for sure.

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.

Leading 2020 Democrats Outed as Supporter of Segregation

Of course, the division of the American populace has worked wonders for democrats at the ballot box, where galvanized, fringe societal groups band together to fight the supposed “evils” of conservatism.

There has been a whole lot of talk about modern segregation, particular as it applies to the nation’s current political climate.

Over the course of the last few years, the liberal left has been doing their damnedest in order to disparage their across-the-aisle colleagues.  Republicans have routinely been targeted for extreme abuse by lawmakers such as Maxine Waters, and by celebrities such as Kathy Griffin.

In the case of Waters, it was only days after her infamous “form mobs” speech that several women from the Trump administration were shouted out of restaurants while dining with their families.  For Griffin, however, her faux “dead President” photoshoot was followed only two weeks later by the actions of a crazed Bernie Sanders campaign worker who attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team in Virginia.

For the left, conservatives are simply second class citizens, and it shows.

But why are democrats so fond of this discrimination?  Well maybe it’s because they are secretly fond of all discrimination.

Take it from Joe Biden, on the subject of “busing” African Americans during our nation’s period of segregation.

“I think the concept of busing … that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride,” Biden said, “is a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity.

Desegregation was “a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality,” Biden said.

Of course, the division of the American populace has worked wonders for democrats at the ballot box, where galvanized, fringe societal groups band together to fight the supposed “evils” of conservatism.

Naturally, the only way to make enemies out of countrymen is by hatred and segregation – possibly explaining why prominent democrats seem so blasé about such prejudice.
