Continuing hormone treatments is cheap! Cheaper than many other other necessary treatments. They aren't diagnosing or beginning treatments, It's all continuation of past medical treatments.

More obamanation idiocies designed to kiss mexihole azz for votes. The obamanation's lesser known queer transgender czar must have come up with this idiocy.

If it doesn't treat a life threatening condition, it isn't necessary, is it?

people left untreated for GID have a 33% sucide rate, thats almost 3 times the sucide rate is for returning solders yet government money goes to solving that issue. but why would you care you want all "ickey" people gone anyway, you dont even do research to learn anything you just go with what some talking heads tell you.

Difference is that returning soldiers have served their country.
Convicts doing time have dishonored and disrespected it and are undeserving "icky" people. Your word, not mine.

BTW, I've enough voices of my own in my head without listening to others.

Demorats are some of the dumbest people on earth. These people are illegal mexiholes and only deserve detainment until they can be speedily deported. Giving illegal mexiholes transgender treatments is another form of kissing mexihole butt for votes as well as getting a nod of approval from all of the queer demorats.
not cheap

Cheap? The drugs might be inexpensive, but what about everything else that goes along with it? Blood testing once or twice a year isn't cheap, it's very expensive. The doctors have to get paid too, what about their fees?
No need for taxpayers to have to pay the bill for cross dressers and others who don't need these treatments.

You don't just end hormone treatments! One must be tapered of them.
To make a sudden stop can have devastating effects. I am not a democrat or even liberal for that matter. I am a coservative pragmatist. Once the people are here, well what are you going to do with them? Discontinue medicines? For diabetics? For heart problems? I agree we should return them ASAP.

Don't be ridiculous. Today's version of Democrats don't claim to be smart enough to make rational political choices. They are all about being Social Engineers cause it is always better to FEEL GOOD than to ACTUALLY DO ANY GOOD for America. It's the motto of the Progressive Cult.

quite a few of those returning solders are transsexual. I am. You know the one think i have learned from these boards. The fact that I am transsexual invalidates any good i have done even by serving my country.
However In truth it does not. The VA works with transexuals very well... at least where I live. They provide therapy and hormone treatment for us.

Keeping marriage as is, between husband and wife, is the centrist moderate position. Outlawing homosexual behavior or radically redefining marriage to call two men or two women married, are the extremist radical positions.

Keep it real, stop wasteful government spending, intrusive government regulations and higher taxes.

I'm glad you're having a positive experience. Many many, Transexuals serve honorably in the military prior to their transition. One I like is British Capt Jan Hamilton (Google) who made a spectacular transition. I knew two, one who was a tunnel rat in VietNam and the other who was in Special forces/inteligence during the First Desert Storm. She was permanently disabled during a para chute op on the Iranian-Soviet border.

What makes you think it isn't life threatening? Have you researched this? If you have, please show me where the support for your statement is written? Thnx!

Yes, I agree. Indeed, they are! Trans people are human and they deserve the respect and dignity that all humans are due by their Creator. It's too bad that so much misogyny and phobia are aimed at them.
