President Joe Biden signed an executive order requiring American taxpayers to pay for transgender surgery for active military personnel and veterans.

The executive order, titled “Enabling All Qualified Americans to Serve Their Country in Uniform” was signed on January 25. It repeals a policy that previously banned federally funded gender reassignment surgery.

Biden’s order states that the military “thrives when it is composed of diverse Americans who can meet the rigorous standards for military service, and an inclusive military strengthens our national security.”

“It is my conviction as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces that gender identity should not be a bar to military service,” Biden said. “Moreover, there is substantial evidence that allowing transgender individuals to serve in the military does not have any meaningful negative impact on the Armed Forces.”

Recent memos from the Department of Defense confirm that free gender reassignment surgery will be added to the military benefits package.

“This revised policy will also ensure all medically-necessary transition-related care authorized by law is available to all Service members,” Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin wrote.

Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough sent an order to VA employees that said, “Perform an assessment of the necessary steps to eliminate the exclusion of ‘gender alteration’ (gender affirmation surgery) in the medical benefits package.”

In February, McDonough ordered a top-down review of department policies to make sure the VA was complying with Biden’s executive order.

“My goal as secretary is to make sure VA is welcoming to all veterans, including our transgender veterans,” McDonough said.

TRICARE, the military’s health insurance provider, lists hormone replacement therapy and psychotherapy for gender dysphoria as “covered services.”

“TRICARE generally doesn’t cover surgery for gender dysphoria,” the health care provider says on its website. “However, active duty service members may request a waiver if their provider deems surgery medically necessary.”

A USA Today report from 2019 revealed that the “Pentagon has spent nearly $8 million to treat more than 1,500 transgender troops since 2016, including 161 surgical procedures.” The report also said that “1,071 service members have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Public Health Service on active duty and in the reserve force.”

Gender reassignment surgery can cost over $100,000.

Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), who is an Iraq War veteran and sits on the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, supports transgender individuals serving in the military, but argues against American taxpayers paying for gender reassignment surgeries.

“This is radical and new territory for a presidential administration to force taxpayers to fund sexual reassignment surgeries for those in the military,” Banks said. “I’m compassionate toward those individuals who want to undergo an elective surgery of this nature, but taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook to pay for it. It’s constitutionally dubious that Congress hasn’t passed these measures, but the administration, in a radical way, is pushing through this agenda. I sit on the committee that should debate these issues.”

  1. There is no way that tax $’s should be used for someone to get trans surgery. On top of the money there is all the down time. They only joined so they can get the surgery FOC. What a disgrace.

  2. I think it should come out of the money he an his son got from China an Ukrainian an Russia Then tap his bank account. An possibly his wife salary an his presidential salary

  3. The madness continues. Biden sneaks in another back door presidential order while completing circumnavigating congress. Why take that approach? The dems hold the house and senate. Perhaps he’s afraid to ask his cronies to pass a bill that most of the citizens would vote against. Here we go with presidential order after presidential order. The lies about reaching across the aisles are blatantly false. He cares nothing of unity. I believe he’s more dangerous than Sanders because with Sanders he would tell us what he’s doing no matter how ludicrous. Biden hides away holding no press conferences anf signs presidential orders avoiding the very democratic ideals this country was founded upon. Setting a very dangerous precident. Future leaders will see this as an easy way to do whatever they choose. Blurring the line between reality and fantasy. How can anyone consider this guy a catholic

  4. “Gender reassignment surgery can cost over $100,000.”:

    Seems like a PERSONAL CHOICE. So deserves to come out of someones PERSONAL FUNDS.

    “The male and female bodies take different route when developing as the two genders add more years to their ages. This is because of the hormones that are being excreted, aiding development and altering changes in the physical, emotional and sexual well being of the body. Physically, most men are bigger and taller than women,” Thus an Unequal competition.

    6/16/19- Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.”

    “’Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” said McHugh. “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”

    Biden forcing TAXPAYERS to pay for it is THEFT of TAXPAYER MONEY.
    Biden is Breaking the Law and is a CROOK.

  6. This is a disgrace. Let’s just put aside the fact that it is a perverted thing, it is an enormous amount of money, and just where does it end. What about the men in the Military who have larger breasts that make them uncomfortable and want them removed. Or the women who feel like their breasts are too small, and they need an enlargement to feel like women….or liposuction and tummy tucks…..or face lifts…..lip injections……anything that any Military member feels they need done in order to make them “complete”!!!! This is such a joke. The Military is NOT where these people belong…….IT IS A MENTAL FACILITY.
