  • Fulop isn’t paying for gender reassignment surgery. You are.

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Steven Fulop earned the adulation of media outlets and liberal activists this week for announcing that Jersey City will henceforth cover the gender reassignment surgical bills for its public employees.
