Warren Wants American Taxpayers To Fund Transgender Surgeries For Inmates

The CNN town hall event on Thursday night about LGBTQ rights was interesting to say the least. Senator Elizabeth Warren made sure to show off how 'woke' she was when it came to her radical plans for the transgender community.
At one point during the evening, Warren claimed that criminals in prison are "entitled" to taxpayer funded gender reassignment surgery. The comments from Warren came when CNN host Chris Cuomo brought up her previous stance where she stated that Americans should NOT pay for transgender surgery. Like every other Democrat in history, Warren flip-flopped on her previous stance and took the more modern popular side.
“Do you regret that?” Cuomo asked.
“Yup,” Warren replied. “It was a bad answer [at the time]. I believe that everyone is entitled to medical care and medical care that they need and that includes people who are transgender who, um, it is time for them to have [transgender] surgery. I just think that’s important.”

The proposal from Warren comes after her recently released “Plan For LGBTQ+ Rights And Equality."
The plan reads: “I will direct the Bureau of Prisons to end the Trump Administration’s dangerous policy of imprisoning transgender people in facilities based on their sex assigned at birth.”
The plan also supports the idea of legalized prostitution: “I am also open to decriminalizing sex work. Sex workers, like all workers, deserve autonomy and are particularly vulnerable to physical and financial abuse and hardship.”
Believe it or not, this was not the most bizarre incident during the town hall event. At one point, Warren applauded a nine year old transgender child, (biological girl) who identified as a "transgender American."
“My name’s Jacob, and I’m a nine-year-old transgender American,” the child said while standing next to her mom.
“All right, Jacob,” Warren said while applauding.
"Jacob" then asked Warren what she would do during her first week in office to make transgender children “feel safer in schools” and what “schools need to do better so I don’t have to worry about anything but my homework.”
“Oh, I like that question, Jacob! Let me start by saying I want to have a secretary of education that who both believes in public education and believes in the value of every one of our kids and is willing to enforce our civil rights laws,” Warren responded. “We’ve had some secretaries of education who’ve been better, and we’ve had one that’s been a whole lot worse. Her name is Betsy DeVos. So, when I’m president, she’ll be gone.”
Warren then said that she wanted "Jacob" to help her pick the right person for the job.
“I want to make sure that the person I think is the right secretary of education meets you and and hears your story, and then I want you to tell me if you think that’s the right person and then we’ll make the deal,” she said.
