    Depends really, because we don't know if gender identity disorder can be treated with a more cost effective medication.

    We in the U.S. have decided that it is very important to socialize loss/imperfection, I think I'm perfectly valid in my criticism.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It's on the way, the U.S. government is helping decide what is a cost effective treatment.

    If the government got out of healthcare the cost would go down. Healthcare is expensive because the government allows them to nickle and dime the populance as lobbyists pay off politicians.

    A trued free market would allow competition to bring prices down.

    A good example is laser eye surgery. Prices have gone down.

    I'm just concerned that we may be ignoring other avenues in treatment.

    What if it is just a mental disorder, meaning that it could be treated successfully with medication.
    I think more research is needed before we dive in to surgical correction.

    One I do not think that is up to us to decide. Two there is a lot to get to the point of sex reassignment surgery.

    If you don't want your insurance premium to possibly go up 5-17 cents a year, then by all means, make sure you choose an insurance company that denies transgender reassignment surgery.

    Again, the question is why are they involving themselves in this trivial matter? What is their motivation?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
