via MSNBC

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s attempt to reduce the salary of Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine to $1 was rejected by the House, with 170 Republicans supporting the amendment but being outnumbered by 46 GOP members and 208 Democrats.

Greene accused Levine of promoting “demonic gender-affirming care” and labeled him as “unfit,” stating that he should be fired.

The White House condemned Greene’s actions, calling them “hateful” and “dangerous,” emphasizing support for Levine and denouncing intolerance. (Trending: Judge Issue Major Ruling On Transgender Procedures For Kids)

The House Press Gallery tweeted, “The House rejected @RepMTG Amd’t #103 by a vote of 170-254-1 present.”

“My amendment uses the Holman rule (an amendment to appropriations legislation that can reduce the salary of or fire specific federal employees) to reduce, no castrate, the salary of assistant secretary for health Richard Levine to $1, the same way he supports castrating children who suffer from gender dysphoria,” Greene reportedly declared in her proposal speech.

“It is our job to protect our children from sexual groomers like Levine and reducing his salary to $1 is a strong first step,” continued the Georgria Republican.

Greene was reported describing Levine as a “diversity hire.”

Asserting that Levine’s hiring was “to push the demonic gender-affirming care agenda,” and that the “unfit” bureaucrat should “never have been hired.”

“He deserves to be fired immediately,” she echoed.

Warning that, “This man is a danger to all children and shouldn’t be serving in our government.”

The White House issued a statement in response to Greene amendment.

A White House representative reportedly said, “It’s a hateful, dangerous, and unacceptable stunt that comes at a time when the LGBTQI+ community is under unprecedented attack.”

“The Biden-Harris Administration proudly stands with Admiral Rachel Levine, assistant secretary for health, a public servant who works every day to improve the health and well-being of all Americans, continued the statement.

Adding, “We will continue to stand up and speak out against hate and intolerance in all forms.”

Despite the failure of her amendment, Greene criticized Republicans who supported Levine, referring to him as “a mentally ill man pretending to be a woman.”

“Apparently there are some Republicans who think Dick Levine, a mentally ill man pretending to be a woman, deserves to keep his job as Assistant HHS Secretary,” posted Green to X.

Additionally, Greene’s proposal to reduce the salary of Education Secretary Miguel Cardona also failed.
