President Donald Trump thought that Democrats will be the only group to oppose his plans and ideas. But, a bunch of Republicans decided to go against the President, and reject the amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that could have the power to block Pentagon funds for sex change surgeries demanded by service members, or sex change surgeries, if you prefer it better.
The amendment by Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo. was blocked by the 214-209 vote on the House floor. This could be the best decision ever made, but Republicans were here to spoil it all. Their combination with Democrats is as dangerous as it seems.
Hartzler came out with strong arguments, and discussed over the fact that the funds should be focused on the defense priorities of our military.
“There are many problems, but funding transition surgeries with tax dollars is problematic because the surgery is very costly. Surgical recovery time decreases the deployability of our soldiers, and funding transition surgeries means diverting money from other defense priorities. We must have soldiers who can deploy if called upon. Military members undergoing transition surgery are non-deployable for up to 267 days. Similarly, regular hormone treatments render individuals non-deployable into the future. It makes no sense to create soldiers who are unable to fight and win our nation’s wars and unfair to non-transitioning individuals who must leave their families and deploy in their place,” Hartzler said.
It’s clear that our military needs reinforcement. Sex change surgeries can’t do any good to our military. You can’t protect the country by changing your sex. We can’t really understand the demand of such surgeries. We all know the true role of the US military, but unfortunately, some people are more interested in causing a chaos.
They are: Reps. Justin Amash and Jack Bergman of Michigan; Mike Coffman of Colorado; Barbara Comstock of Virginia; Paul Cook, Jeff Denham, Darryl Issa and Steve Knight of California; Ryan Costello, Charlie Dent, Brian Fitzpatrick and Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania; Carlos Curbelo and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida; John Faso, John Katko, Tom Reed, Elise Stefanik and Claudia Tenney of N.Y; Leonard Lance, Frank LoBiondo and Tom MacArthur of New Jersey; Brian Mast of Florida; and Dave Reichert of Washington are the Republicans who gave full support to Democrats.
What do you think about this? How will this affect our military?
