    Isn't it great how Obama likes to use the Christian Card?

    "people who are bearing false witness..."

    That reminds me of somebody... :eusa_whistle:

    This is one of many instances that I consider Obama to be a coward.

    Why wouldn't a legal medical procedure be covered...especially when erectile dysfunction is...quite a double standard.

    We are left with either he is lying, or he doesn't have a good working knowledge of the program he is pitching. Or both.

    All are equally horrible choices.

    Meanwhile, he's pandering to every special interest group, like Ravi says, cowardly. The squeaky wheel gets the oil, and the oil in this case is just telling everybody what they want to hear. Like any good Con, the Marks have to be placated or it won't work. Problem is, those pesky little facts keep getting in the way.

    It is? I worked in a pharmacy for 3 years as a pharmacy tech. I never saw a single insurance policy that covered Viagra or any of its substitutes, while I saw every policy cover birth control.

    Unless insurance companies and Medicare have changed in the last three years, erectile dysfunction treatments are not covered.

    I don't believe Medicare covers the meds, but many private carriers do; some limit the number of doses per month or require prior authorization.

    Looks like politico doublespeak to me, too.

    If the public plan does not include reproductive choice as part of it coverage it's another example of how classistly immoral our society is becoming.

    Last I checked no one gets murdered in order to fix erectile dysfunction. Further last I checked there is not around half the Country opposed to erectile dysfunction treatment. More evidence of your blazing IGNORANCE.

    NJ covered Viagra until jut a few months ago. The good news was that the senior citizen sex toy business started booming.
