Republicans won the House, the Senate, and the White House in November, but you wouldn’t ever know it by the way they’re acting.
In fact, since then, they’ve allowed the Democrats to dictate nearly everything as they cower in fear of the media ripping them to shreds for daring oppose the liberal agenda, despite the fact they rode President Trump’s coat tails to victory and he stood vehemently opposed to the liberal agenda. The latest capitulation comes over a major transgender issue regarding our military, and it’s an issue conservatives aren’t going to be happy about…at all.
During the Obama years, the military started paying for sex change surgeries of confused individuals who had previously been banned from joining the military at all, since the military is about fighting and not social justice. So with the change in leadership came a proposal to stop requiring taxpayers to foot the bill for voluntary mutilations of the human body, but despite having an overwhelming majority in the House the measure was defeated.
Can you believe it?
From the Washington Post:
The Republican-led House narrowly rejected a measure on Thursday that sought to strike an Obama-era practice of requiring the Pentagon to pay for gender transition surgeries and hormone therapy.
Democrats described the proposal as bigoted, unconstitutional and cowardly and they won support from 24 GOP lawmakers to scuttle the amendment to the annual defense policy bill, 214-209.
The amendment crafted by Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo., would have forbid money from being spent by the military’s health care system for medical treatment related to gender transition. Hartzler portrayed her proposal as a good government plan aimed at assuring military dollars are spent only on critical national defense needs.
Again, can you believe it?
The military should only be worried about one thing and one thing only – annihilating the enemy – and shouldn’t have anything to do with sex change operations whatsoever. Further, it really shouldn’t be on the taxpayers to foot the bill for those who choose to mutilate their bodies because they’re confused about what it means to have a penis.
Republicans should be absolutely ashamed for allowing this to happen.
