Republicans Cut Funding For San Francisco Values

Jul 14, 2017

Republicans have cut funds for the Department of Defense that were designated for sex change operations. The amendment states, “Funds available to the Department of Defense may not be used to provide medical treatment (other than mental health treatment) related to gender transition to a person entitled to medical care.” Representative Vicky Hartzler, sponsor of the amendment, said, “Military service is a privilege, not a right. It is predicated on winning wars and defeating the enemy. All decisions on personnel and funding should be made with this in mind.” Of course Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, ripped into the legislation saying, “Republicans should be ashamed: instead of protecting the men and women who risk their lives to defend our freedoms, they are fighting to rip away the health care of thousands of brave service members.” Pelosi is right. Soldiers are in the military to defend American’s liberties. But that does not mean, taxpayers are required to fund the bizarre mutilation of confused men and women.
