New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that under his administration the cost of gender-reassignment surgeries would be covered by a publicly funded Medicare for all system.
“Absolutely. We have to respect everyone’s medical needs,” de Blasio said at the New York City Pride parade when asked if his Medicare for all plan would cover this elective procedure.
Talk about pandering!

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday he supports a government-run health care system that covers gender reassignment surgeries.
“Absolutely. We have to respect everyone’s medical needs,” de Blasio said at the New York City Pride parade when asked by a reporter if Medicare for All, which he supports, would cover gender reassignment procedures.
“If someone needs a surgery to be full and to live their life fully — the idea is a health care system that actually serves everyone to the fullest, not a health care system that rations and causes people to struggle to get just a little health care,” he said.
No other Democratic candidates have said they support covering gender reassignment surgery in their health care plans. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who introduced the Medicare for All bill in the Senate in 2017, has not said how his government-operated health system will handle gender reassignment surgeries. More
The American taxpayer who actually pays the bills knows nothing is really free. They pay for it. That said. Blowhards that spew free for all gifts in exchange for votes, also know that the majority of the voting public elect these people for the free stuff.
Where else in the world can an unemployed able-bodied person get full medical coverage, prescriptions, and food stamps? Not to mention a housing subsidy. All for no reason except the fact that they qualify based on their lack of income.
