U.S. Military Spends Significantly More On Viagra Than Transgender Health

The pig head of the United States made big news this week when he tweeted out his new policy stating that transgender people would no longer be allowed to participate in America’s Armed Forces.

Trump claims that the cost of transgender healthcare is the primary reason he has enacted this hateful policy. However, the good folks at The Washington Post discovered something very interesting about the money that is spent on medical care. Our military spends FIVE TIMES as much on Viagra pills for soldiers with limp noodles then it does on transgender health care.

Rand Corp. did a study on the cost of military medical services and here’s what they found:

Considering the prevalence of transgender servicemembers among the active duty military and the typical health-care costs for gender-transition-related medical treatment, the Rand study estimated that these treatments would cost the military between $2.4 million and $8.4 million annually.

But here’s the kicker…

By contrast, total military spending on erectile dysfunction medicines amounts to $84 million annually, according to an analysis by the Military Times — 10 times the cost of annual transition-related medical care for active duty transgender servicemembers.

The military spends $41.6 million annually on Viagra alone, according to the Military Times analysis — roughly five times the estimated spending on transition-related medical care for transgender troops.

In essence, if you were born with a d*ck, the U.S. will spend whatever it takes to make sure its in good working order. However, if you acquired a d*ck, well, then you’re not worth the money.

Another day, another Trump lie. World keeps spinnin’.
