Here Are 24 Republicans Who Voted to Have Uncle Sam Pay for Transgender Surgeries & Hormone Therapy

July 17, 2017 10:27 pm  

(BizPac Review) – If you thought a Republican-controlled government might at least rein in some of the excessive, insane, Obama-era social experimentation being imposed on the United States military, you’d be sadly mistaken.

Because on Thursday, the House of Representatives voted 214-209 to reject an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would have banned the Pentagon from paying for surgeries and hormone therapy for mentally disturbed individuals who are confused about what sex they are.

The kicker? Twenty-four Republicans, including supposedly fiscally-conservative libertarian Justin Amash, made this travesty possible by bucking their party and voting with the united Democrats.

The amendment, proposed by Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler, would have saved upwards of $1.3 billion over the next decade but hey, turning girls into boys and boys into girls is the least Uncle Sam can do for its “gender-confused” members.

It’s not like there aren’t more important things to spend the money on, right?

“This is about addressing [North] Korea, Russia, ISIS,” Hartzler said during the debate. “We need every defense dollar to go to meeting those threats, not anything else, and we need to make sure our troops are ready and can be deployed.”

In June, Hartzler said: “The Obama transgender policy, which was implemented without input from Members of Congress, is ill-conceived and contrary to our goals of increasing troop readiness and investing defense dollars into addressing budget shortfalls of the past. By recruiting and allowing transgender individuals to serve in our military we are subjecting taxpayers to high medical costs including up to $130,000 per transition surgery, lifetime hormone treatments, and additional surgeries to address the high percentage of individuals who experience complications.”

“The deployability of individuals going through the sex transition process is highly problematic,” Hartzler continued. “requiring 210 to 238 work days where a soldier is non-deployable after surgery. This recovery time equates to 1.4 million manpower days where transgender personnel cannot deploy and fight our nation’s wars, therefore relying on an already stressed force to pick up the burden. It makes no sense to purposely recruit individuals who cannot serve.”

California Rep. Duncan Hunter called opposition to Hartzler’s amendment “silly” because, well, people should “figure out if you’re a man or a woman before you join up.”

Too obvious for libs, who called the amendment “ignorant, mean-spirited and denigrating” and said it would “would reduce military readiness” because it would discourage transgenders from serving. Nevermind that, according to the RAND Corporation, there are upwards of 6,630 transgender people in the military – not quite enough to make a single division.

Oddly enough, one factor that might have led some of the 24 Republicans to oppose the amendment was Defense Secretary James Mattis’s personal call to Hartzler before the vote urging her to pull the amendment. This tidbit was told to the Huffington Post by a senior House Democratic aide, but hasn’t been confirmed otherwise as of this writing.
