Brown University insurance covers
sex changes for students

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/7/2013 11:07:11 AM

Looking for a free sex change operation? Enroll at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Come August, the school will offer coverage in its student health care plan for the procedure, according to The Daily Caller. “We identified this as an important benefit for students to have access to,” said Director of Insurance and Purchasing Services Jeanne Hebert, in The Daily Caller report. The new health care provision, she reportedly said, is part of an overall effort “to support all students” at the university. The insurance offering is substantial; according to industry estimates,

Comments:
This dovetails nicely with the ridiculous ruling by the Virginia appellate court. I don´t know how we are ever going to restore normalcy to this country. We are well beyond the tipping point.

Well, they have just guaranteed they will have a large inflow of students who ´need´ this surgery, and a large outflow of students who don´t and don´t want to pay for it for others.

The value of a degree from Brown University just went down.

This is not insurance. Insurance is spreading the risk over those exposed to a loss. Not many people enrolled at Brown would seem to have a risk or need for sex changes. This is socialism, and anyone at Brown doesn´t deserve a degree in anything, if they cannot discern the difference.

Illustrious Brown alumni include JFK, Jr. & Patrick Kennedy, if memory serves...

So when you go in and request your sex operation, do you say...
"I´d like one of those Brown things, ya know? In this shade of Brown... And size
matters... Okay?"

Afterwards you´d better put some ice on it.

Apparently Brown University is self-insured, because the premium would be massive to cover elective surgeries. Are breast implants also covered?

Following the Trail Nixon Blazed

What would a president do if he were furious over criticism, or felt that his noble aims justified most means of attaining them? Answer that by comparing the behavior of Richard Nixon to that of an increasingly similar Barack Obama. Nixon tried to use the Internal Revenue Service to go after his political enemies — although his IRS chiefs at least refused his orders to focus on liberals. Nixon ignored settled law and picked and chose which statutes he would enforce — from denying funds for the Clean Water Act to ignoring congressional subpoenas. Nixon attacked TV networks and got into personal

Nancy Pelosi said her Democratic colleagues should not shy from the Affordable Care Act in their 2014 midterm campaigns, arguing that Republicans "are wasting their time using that as their electoral issue." But Pelosi insisted Thursday that that strategy would be in vain. “It’s time for Republicans to end their obsession with the Affordable Care Act,” she said. Asked whether Democrats should steer clear of the health law in congressional campaigns, she answered, “Absolutely not.” “I’m very proud of our House Democrats and how they have not only embraced the Affordable Care Act, because they helped create it, but how proud

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid renewed his crusade against the Koch brothers Thursday, and demanded that Republicans disavow the two men who have spent tens of millions of dollars to back conservative causes. “Is even one of you — is even one of you — willing to stand up and disavow the Koch brothers’ agenda?” Mr. Reid demanded on the Senate floor as he opened Thursday’s session.

During arguments over the ENFORCE the Law Act, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) said that the GOP hasn’t attempted to sue President Obama because “they would not present a truthful case.” Johnson made the comments on the House floor Wednesday, saying lawmakers already have the ability to sue the president for failure to enforce federal laws, but haven’t done so for a reason. “Well, they haven’t sued because they know that they would not present a truthful case, they know that they would lose the case,” Johnson said. “They know that this president has not exceeded his constitutional authority.

Democrats can’t even agree whether Obamacare was the reason for their crushing loss in a Florida special election Tuesday. Now picture how their messaging plan for the health care law is shaping up for 2014. Republican lobbyist David Jolly’s victory over Democrat Alex Sink has many Democrats privately worried and publicly split about how to talk about Obamacare. (Also on POLITICO: Full health care policy coverage) A few Democrats are advocating a drastic rhetorical shift to the left, by criticizing their own party for not going far enough when it passed the law in 2010. Other Democrats plan to sharply

To Republicans, a word of caution over the special election in Florida´s 13th congressional district: Don´t uncork the champagne. David Jolly´s victory on Tuesday over Democrat Alex Sink by 48.4%-46.6% is significant. President Obama won the district twice, and its changing political demographics make it Democratic-leaning—despite being held for 42 years by C.W. "Bill" Young, a popular Republican, until his death last fall. Still, special elections don´t always dictate how midterms turn out. There were 10 special congressional elections in the two years leading up to the 2010 midterms: The GOP flipped one Democratic seat, Democrats took away one Republican

SAN FRANCISCO — An independent commission led by a former U.S. surgeon general has concluded there "is no compelling medical reason" for the U.S. armed forces to prohibit transgender Americans from serving and that President Barack Obama could lift the decades-old ban without approval from Congress, according to a report being released Thursday. The report said Department of Defense regulations designed to keep transgender people from joining or remaining in the military on the grounds of psychological and physical unfitness are based on outdated beliefs that require thousands of current service members either to leave the service or to forego

"For millions of families in the United States, childcare is their single largest household expense at nearly $15,000 a year," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday in a speech on the Senate floor. "And in an economy where most families have two working parents, childcare isn´t a luxury -- it´s a necessity." The Senate on Thursday is scheduled to vote on a bill that would amend and reauthorize through fiscal year 2020 the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990. The program provides funding to the states for child-care subsidies for low-income families, as well as money

Ten U.S. Islamic organizations have formed a new umbrella group to serve as a “representative voice” for American Muslims, and one of their first tasks will be to carry out a census of the community. Other focus areas for the new U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), according to speakers at the body’s launch in Washington on Wednesday, include enhancing Muslim political engagement and participation in forthcoming elections, civil rights issues, combating “Islamophobia” and having an impact on U.S. foreign and domestic policy. Participating organizations include high-profile groups that have been dogged by controversy, such as the Muslim American Society

Establishment Republicans have said that GOP candidates cannot win races in swing districts, especially against strong Democrats, by firmly opposing amnesty. In what could be a bellwether for November, Republican David Jolly won a special election House race in Florida´s 13th congressional district on Tuesday night by doing just that in a district that was not favorable to him. President Barack Obama won it twice and his chief opponent, Alex Sink, the last Florida Democrat to win statewide, won it in her failed gubernatorial campaign in 2010. In addition, when Jolly was trailing in the polls by three points, the Republican

Illinois has one of the worst pension messes in the nation as the cost of government employee benefits is sending state, county, and local governments into bankruptcy crises all across the state. No place has more trouble than Chicago, prompting Mayor Rahm Emanuel to warn that property taxes will have to double to serve that spiraling debt. In 2015 Chicago faces a looming financial disaster with a municipal pension system that is in worse shape than that of any other major U.S. city.

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican
