ObamaCare is transforming a lot more than health coverage! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you thought the price tag of ObamaCare was bad, you should see what it's paying for. Thanks to a group of House Democrats, the President's health care law may be offering a few radical makeovers. According to these congressmen, ObamaCare is too "discriminating" against cross-dressers and transgenders. They think HHS should lift the ban on "gender transition services" and force taxpayers to fund everything from hormone therapy to a complete gender reassignment. Although HHS hasn't decided what guidelines it'll change, the agency did confirm that they were considering the idea. "That's right," says Heritage's Conn Carroll. The Left wants to add cross-dressing perks to the list of services "all health insurance policies in the nation have to cover." If they succeed, taxpayers everywhere could be footing the bill for government-sponsored sex changes. And I think most of us would agree: that's hardly "change we can believe in."
