While the squabbling over President Trump’s surprise announcement that transgenders would be banned from the military continues, there are financial concerns as well.
Congress is digging in their heels behind their new anti-Trump champion John McCain as they work to preserve Barack Obama’s dream of feminizing the military and carving out safe spaces for transgenders.
With the transvestite integration project now becoming an issue in the upcoming elections, look for the typical stalling on making a final decision until after next November.
One disturbing aspect of this phony debate is that the media is not providing a forum for alternate views on how absorbing transgenders and indoctrinating our armed forces with sensitivity training will affect combat readiness.
Nor the financial aspects, according to a study the taxpayers can be on the hook for $1.3 billion in gender reassignment operations.

According to the Washington Free Beacon “Transgender Surgeries Would Cost Pentagon $1.3 Billion”:
Taxpayer-funded sex-change surgeries would cost the Pentagon $1.3 billion over 10 years.
President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that transgender individuals will not be eligible to serve in the military, with the White House citing cost and military readiness concerns.
Internal data provided to the Washington Free Beacon from Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R., Mo.), a leading opponent of taxpayer-funded sex changes, show that even by using a conservative estimate, the costs associated with 0.7 percent of the military population is great.
Hartzler’s office provided a detailed calculation that shows estimates of the current number of transgender service members, and the number likely to seek a taxpayer-funded gender transition.
“The 10-year cost estimate is for surgery only and is adjusted for 3 percent inflation; it accounts for Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve members currently serving as well as new recruits over the same time period,” the document states. “It uses the FY 18 DoD number for total number of military members and multiplies it by the percentage of military personnel assumed to be transgender as reported by the UCLA Williams Institute and the National Center for Transgender Equality.”
However, there is a very obvious flaw with the report as it addresses the current level of transgenders in the armed forces.
This is an estimated figure that fails to take into account the number of gender confused weirdos that would rush to sign up for military service once the green light is given for transgenders and these people could get Uncle Sam to foot the bill for their sex changes.
The $1.3 billion would be on the very low end considering the desire for freebie sex changes as well as skyrocketing medical costs.
