Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren both want American taxpayers to foot the bill for transgender surgeries.
Biden and Warren spoke at an LGBTQ forum in Iowa, according to Vox. Both of them discussed taxpayer-funded reassignment surgeries.
Biden’s approach was to make it legal under Obamacare. “It does cover the surgery. It does cover transgender people,” he said. “It does cover across the board. … Every LGBTQ person as well as anyone else should be able to have full health care without any limitations.”
“No doctor can deny you. No hospital can tell you can’t get the service,” the former vice president added. “It is simply against the law when I’m president.”
Warren also gave her views on the issue. Lyz Lenf of The Gazette reminded her that in 2012 she did not support gender affirming surgery for transgender for inmates. At the time she said, “I have to say, I don’t think it’s a good use of taxpayer dollars.”
“The way I think about this in America — equal means equal and that is true everywhere,” Warren said. “It’s true in the workplace, it’s true in marriage and it’s true in health care. And we have to be willing to get out there and fight for it. It’s true for people who are straight. It’s true for people who are gay, bi, trans, intersex. It’s true for everyone.”
She also discussed Medicare for all.

“Medicare for all is not something that goes through the states. This is a direct commitment from the federal government to every single person in this country that you will have the full range of health care services that you need,” Warren continued.
The battle for the Democratic nominee is boiling down to who can push further and further left. This was never more evident than when all Democrats at main debate raised their hand in support of illegal immigrants getting health care coverage.
