WHO: Digby
WHERE: Hullabaloo
THESIS: No federal tax dollars should to Viagra, because Digby has a "moral objection to paying for any kind of erectile dysfunction medicine in the new health reform bill"
IT'S NOT THE GOVERNMENT'S FAULT YOU CAN'T DO IT ON YOUR OWN: There's no right to erections in the constitution. "I don't think there's even been a Supreme Court ruling making wood a constitutional right. I might be wrong about that"
JUST CONSIDER IT A MATTER OF FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY: "Unlike the payments for abortion, which actually lower overall medical costs (pregnancy obviously costs much, much more) banning tax dollars from covering any kind of Viagra would result in a substantial savings"
IF YOU MUST HAVE AN ERECTION: "pay for it yourself"
READ MY LIPS: No new taxes for Viagra. "I don't want my tax dollars touching even one milimeter of that overly engorged expense"
THE SCREED:

I have a moral objection to paying for any kind of erectile dysfunction medicine in the new health reform bill and I think men who want to use it should just pay for it out of pocket. After all, I won't ever need such a pill. And anyway, it's no biggie. Just because most of them can get it under their insurance today doesn't mean they shouldn't have it stripped from their coverage in the future because of my moral objections.
