Who cares if transgenders use a woman’s bathroom? That’s not the issue. And even as important an issue as allowing any man to go into a womens’/girls’ bathroom, there is still a much more important issue underlying the ‘battle of the bathroom’ and gender surgery at hospitals- the power and reach of government. With the passing of ‘Obamacare’, the Executive Branch, through its henchman at the Department of Health and Human Services, is now requiring that hospitals perform sex-change operations or lose their federal funding. That means YOUR local hospital! Because the federal government now controls the purse strings on healthcare, they control the policies as well. Look for many other policy interpretations and enforcement from the Executive Branch in the years and presidential administrations to come.
It is similar to your local bathrooms, especially at your local schools and colleges. Who would have ever imagined! The President using his bully pulpit to force bathroom policy at your local elementary or high school. That’s where we are. The transgender issue is only a vehicle for the federal government, especially the Executive Branch, to gain more power and reach on the local level. This is not a left or right wing issue. Not really. Power seeks more power. The Executive Branch has been on a roll for decades and it is gaining momentum. From the food our kids eat at school to their bathroom policy, to the bogus academic standards enforced by Common Core, the federal government continues on its way toward controlling local events, culture, economy and policy. States and municipalities continue to lose ground in their freedom of choice. Your school may teach against bullying, but its getting bullied and ‘schooled’ by the big man on campus!
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity. A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue.
President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services implemented a rule change to the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) last week mandating that all health providers receiving taxpayer dollars must perform sex-change operations or lose their federal funding. The final rule states that, under Title IX, any hospital receiving funding from HHS must “treat individuals consistent with their gender identity.”
