Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

The House voted in favor of sex change operations for transgender soldiers.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, said:

 “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,” added Hartzler. She noted surgeries alone could cost $1.35 billion over the next 10 years. For perspective, examples of other things the DoD could spend $1.35 billion on include 13 F-35's, 14 Super Hornet F-18’s, 2 B-21 long-range strike bombers, 8 KC-46's, all A-10 wing replacements or increased end strength of our troops.”

Here it is: click here.

The vote was on Hartzler’s House Amendment 183. The purpose was “to prohibit funds for medical treatment (other than mental health treatment) related to gender transition to a person entitled to medical care under chapter 55 of title 10, U.S. code.”

It failed. The noes are for sex change operations funded by the taxpayers.

It’s really incredible. This means the House voted to use taxpayer dollars to pay to cut off a man’s genitalia and a women’s breasts.

In fairness, some of the Republicans voting for the Obama policy did so because they thought they were leaving it in the hands of Defense Secretary Mattis. Mattis is giving the military chiefs six months to conduct a review of the policy. So there is still hope.

According to the Daily Caller, here are the 24 names of the Republicans voting for the Obama trans policy:

  • California Rep. Paul Cook
  • California Rep. Jeff Denham
  • California Rep. Steve Knight
  • California Rep. Darrell Issa
  • Colorado Rep Mike Coffman
  • Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo
  • Florida Rep. Lena Ros-Lehtinen
  • Florida Rep. Brian Mast
  • Michigan Rep. Justin Amash
  • Michigan Rep. Jack Bergman
  • New Jersey Rep. Leonard Lance
  • New Jersey Rep. Frank Lobiondo
  • New Jersey Rep. Tom MacArthur
  • New York Rep. John Faso
  • New York Rep. Elise Stefanik
  • New York Rep. Tom Reed
  • New York Rep. John Katko
  • New York Rep. Claudia Tenney
  • Pennsylvania Rep. Ryan Costello
  • Pennsylvania Rep. Charles Dent
  • Pennsylvania Rep. Bill Shuster
  • Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick
  • Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock
  • Washington Rep. David Reichert

Consider Rep. Jack Bergman (R-MI), a 3-Star Lieut. General, USMC (ret). It’s hard for me to believe he would want trannies in the Armed Forces.

On the other hand, the son of Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) is transgender. Her son, Rodrigo, was born Amanda. Sad.

The point is that General Mattis now can overturn this policy.
