How do decent Americans feel about their health care premiums going up to pay for queer's sex-change operations?

Why do you care, you are in the Ukraine? Besides, where did you read that the costs would go up? American taxpayers have been taking care of your alter who has been on government assistance ever since starting to post on Topix over six years ago.

I had a great health plan at work that my company paid for almost exclusively until Obama f*cked it up and my company had to stop offering that plan. Now I'm forced to buy one of Obama's crappy plans which costs me three times as much.

Sounds like this new sex change crap will make it go up even more.

Thanks Obama!

Why blame Obama for your company's decision? the only plans that were actually discontinues under the ACA were those that were miserable, and below the legal limit for such things.

I don't think you understand the ACA well enough to tell a plausible, racist lie.

It primarily affects those who do not have health insurance through their workplace. It doesn't require that much in terms of making employers cover certain, minimum things.

Statistics prove this to be the opposite. People living in denial actually drive up heath care costs with therapy, drugs as well as suicide attempts and other self-destructive behaviors. It is actually much cheaper to cover sex change costs.

It's another sad day in America when normal decent people can't afford health insurance because they let queers abuse the system to appease their perversion.
We can assume you think of yourself as a decent person.

Why are you such a busybody then? Your hated of other people shows your character to be deeply flawed.

I'd assume just the opposite. These obsessional homophobes and trolls aren't manifesting healthy self esteem.

1. True, it is a company decision.
2. False. Many companies chose to discontinue health care coverage because it was cheaper for them to give an employee a $500 or so monthly credit than it was to pay $1,500 for their family plan. The employee will pay more on the exchange unless he or she is low income and qualify for a subsidy.

There is a difference between a transexual and a homosexual, you idiot.

Also true but in denial of the underlying self esteem issues.

That was a rhetorical question which will be ignored as usual at these trolls are simply venting.
