It’s ironic that these same legislators and the governor who talk about the evils of socialism are the same ones pushing this economically costly anti-transgender “culture war” bill and are expecting the South Dakota taxpayers, businesses and employees to bear the financial costs which will result. Lawsuits and boycotts will most likely happen at a bare minimum.
It’s easy to spend someone else’s money on wasteful and reckless pursuits for political gain — some being personal political gain rather than actual problem solving.
I challenge Gov. Noem and the legislators who are pushing this anti-transgender bill to accept personal financial responsibility for any socio-economic costs South Dakota taxpayers, businesses and employees will incur as a result if this bill is enacted into law.
It’s long overdue for these elected officials to pony up and finally put some skin in the game!
