Congressman, I don’t think the bill was addressed SPECIFICALLY AT YOU, but you made these comments nonetheless:
Georgia Rep. Paul Broun doesn’t want to have to pay for a sex-change operation. “I like being a boy,” he said last week.
From the Huffington Post:
“I don’t want to pay for a sex-change operation,” Broun told town hall attendees, presumably referring to a proposal, scrapped by the Obama administration late last month, that would have allowed gender reassignment surgeries to be covered under Medicare and Medicaid. “I’m not interested. I like being a boy.”
The comments, first reported by the Barrow County News, are somewhat comparable to those made recently by Sen. Saxby Chambliss, also a Republican from Georgia, who said that he doesn’t support gay marriage because ”I’m not gay. So I’m not going to marry one.”
Critical thinking is obviously not emphasized in Georgia schools, or at least wasn’t when these mental champs were in school.
But in case they need reassurance:
1. Paul. Nobody is going to make you have a sex change operation. I don’t want one either. But some people do and that’s sometimes the recommended medical treatment for gender dysphoria, an area your medical degree does not cover.
2. Saxby. You have to marry a dude. If I get to marry a dude, you absolutely have to. No, just kidding, you may stay with your wife Julianne. I hope you two are happy.
