Republicans Push Transgender Ideology

Jul 17, 2017

Democrats and twenty-four Republicans joined together on Thursday to defeat an amendment that would have barred federal funds for sex change surgery. Representative Hartzler, who sponsored the amendment, said, “It makes no sense to create soldiers who are unable to fight and win our nation’s wars.” Representative Duncan Hunter said, “Figure out whether you’re man or a woman before you join. U.S. taxpayers shouldn’t have to foot the bill.” The former Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter, repealed the ban on transgenders serving openly in the military. The plan is unpopular with top military leaders and rank-and-file soldiers.
