cash 100-dollar billTaxpayers could face enormous expenses after a federal court ruled that it's discriminatory for insurance coverage to fail to cover gender reassignment surgery for a government employee.

A cancer researcher and a student in the University of Wisconsin system were awarded $780,000 after suing the state for costs related to gender transition surgeries and hormones.

Steve McConkey, president of 4 Winds USA, says the ACLU intentionally filed the suit in the reliably far-left city of Madison.

"It's a lot of state workers, a lot of government workers, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Freedom From Religion Foundation is here," he advises. "This is a very liberal city and a high percentage of people here promote the gay agenda."

ACLU attorneys argued that denial of gender reassignment costs violates Title IX.

"Obviously, Title IX was never intended for transgenders," he says. "It was intended to improve the (chances for) women in universities and give them an equal opportunity."

Now that the ACLU has been successful in Wisconsin, McConkey predicts similar lawsuits will be filed around the country.
