Same sex marriage means more wasteful government spending, more intrusive regulations and higher taxes to pay for the whole mess:

In shift, Medicare would pay for sex-change operations

March 29, 2013

For the first time since 1981, when it dubbed sex-change operations "experimental," Medicare has opened the door to covering transexual operations, adding to the growing list of operations that would be allowed under Obamacare.

Acting on a new request, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said it is starting a new analysis that could lift the spending ban for sex-change operations with a goal of making a decision two days after Christmas and on the eve of Obamacare kicking in Jan. 1.

A 30-day public comment period just opened on the proposed "National Coverage Determination."

"Surgical Treatment for Gender Identity Disorder, formerly referred to as transsexual surgery in 140.3, is currently noncovered under the Medicare Part A and Part B programs. The existing policy, which became effective in 1981, states that transsexual surgery is considered experimental," said the notice just posted on the CMS.gov site....

I not sure what you mean, but, if you’re inferring that a response to your unfounded post in some way signifies agreement you’re delusional. I responded because you flagrantly present scientific theory as fact and that is very dishonest and irresponsible, especially since you’re not qualified to so. You of all people (being a self-proclaimed genetic mutant) should be wary of anyone errantly proclaiming genetic superiority. And, you of all people (being a self-proclaimed christian) should realize that your god doesn’t make mistakes. So, what are you lying about? Being a mutant, being a christian or both. The entirety of your posts suggest both.

You do realize that the vast majority of Aid's cases world wide are of a heterosexual nature,right? Contrary to what you believe Aid's is a disease that crosses all segments of society,gay or straight! Not only gay men but mothers and children also are afflicted with the dreaded disease! Are you also condemning all the unfortunate heteros who have this disease? At any this has nothing to do with the topic at hand! Please go to a thread where that is the subject,I'm sure there are plenty of them!

If you want a sex change, pay for it yourself. Don't force your neighbors to pay for it by calling it a medical treatment.

Some people are born transgendered. They can't choose how they were born or who they love.

No difference.

Having taxpayers pay for your abortion is just as wrong as having them pay for your sex change operation and medication.

Some people were born with big ears; that doesn't mean taxpayers have to pay for your elective cosmetic surgery.

Well, since it IS medical treatment, how do you get around that? Do you suggest that everyone, including yourself, receive reinsurance coverage only for the basics, and NEVER for reconstructive surgery of any kind?

Because THAT is what "sex change" surgery is.

You can't suggest such restrictions for others unless you accept it for yourself and your family.

And some people are born without a nose, or with twisted limbs, and you believe they should just be on their own.

I saw a story awhile back about a little boy with half of the top of his skull deformed, so it looked like his head had caved in. You believe that HE should pay for the surgery to correct it, not his insurance, or just live with it.

That's not how it works, and fortunately, YOU don't get to decide.

If he tried to understand the simple truth that a transgendered person can be gay, straight, OR bi, and it was completely independent their gender, I think he might break out in hives.

One thing homosexuals and transexuals have in common, they understand the importance of gender. Same sex marriage would remove the importance of gender from the institution of marriage.

Same sex marriage is bad because it harms homosexuals and transexuals.

False inference. For example, two gay men get married. Neither would marry a woman. I'm quite sure gender is important to both and their marriage.

I hope we haven't but with that said, does that mean we should not investigate who leaked the information on the seals that died? Does going back in history clear the great obama?
