A number of Republican state elected officials have expressed outrage at Pres. Obama unconstitutional federal bathroom mandates. In the process they reveal their extreme constitutional hypocrisy.
The Obama administration’s threat to withhold education funding if states don’t adhere to unconstitutional federal bathroom guidelines raised the ire of many Republican state legislators and governors. For instance, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin called the rules “an absurd federal overreach, then complained about the president threatening to “withhold funding from our cash-strapped public schools.”
It appears completely lost on these sudden devotes to the Tenth Amendment that federal education funding itself lacks any constitutional foundation, and also counts as absurd federal overreach.
In a nutshell, these Republican politicos are angry about unconstitutional federal bathroom mandates because they don’t want to lose unconstitutional federal education money.
