    So what you're saying is that if a "man" undergoes this surgery to become a female looking freak, the government should allow the deduction if he becomes a prostitute.

    Nice.

    And that should change.

    What can be more fair than that?

    Oh...there is the option where you personally donate your own money to a charity for the Sexually Confused Who Want to Play Pretend.

    Taxpayer dollars should not finance medical care.

    It's unconstitutional.

    Should not the doctors then work out solutions to the genetic and hormonal problems of the patient so that they regain sanity and become adjusted to the body they're actually in?

    It's far easier to stretch the constitution to say that it *does* cover these things - not the other way around - seeing as how 'general welfare' is in there

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Except, of course, that the phrase "general welfare" was intended to mean, and does not mean, "blank socialist check". Ask both Madison and Hamilton.

    Which is why a bit of medieval stretching is in order to obtain the desired twist on intent

    No, definitely not. There should not be public funding for any elective medical procedure.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
