Pete Buttigieg: Government should fully fund transgender surgeries for those in military

If you’re willing to join the military, to put your life on the line for others, you should be allowed to serve in our armed forces.

I don’t care if you’re straight, gay, transgender or whatever, people who are brave enough to die in order to protect the freedoms that I and many others enjoy should be able to serve in the military.

And while we owe those serving and who have served in the military a lot, paying for transgender surgery is not one of them. It’s a completely and entirely elective procedure. If you feel you’re a man trapped in a woman’s body and want to make the physical match the mental, go for it but taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook for it when John becomes Mary.

But that’s exactly what South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg wants to do. Buttigieg who likes to describe himself as “moderate” floated yet another far left idea on Veteran’s Day of all days.

How about we get the VA working properly before adding this kind of stupidity to the long list of what the taxpayers fund.
