    Corporate Liberals cant keep there hands to themselves. Always looking to the government for a handout. This time its in the form of a penis pump. Touted as erectile dysfunction treatment and running on fox tv late night commercials. No price is given, but I bet it costs a hell of a lot more then the one you can get at your porn store for 14.99.

    Hey, and guess what folks! Its covered by medicare and 'requires no cost to you', also covered by most insurances.

    While this is exceptionally blatant this sort of thing is very common in our economy. I bet the guy that owns this company says he deserves his money cause he 'earned it'.

    I called these people this morning. This pump costs 165$ 150$ of crony capitalism in every purchase, but hey if you have medicaid its paid for! If you have insurance its 70% paid for!

    Wake up people, you are being sold down the river one scam at a time!


    What do all the Jesus loving neocons have to say about this!????

    Who here can defend this?

    Did you ever notice that the markets which experience the highest inflation rates are those most controlled by government? Education, healthcare...costs through the roof compared to other industries. I thought government got involved in these businesses to keep costs down for the little guy. Guess not.

    No! That is not true. Traditionally government control is LESS costs because they dont operate at a profit. Employees get paid better to.

    Now when you take government money, and give it to private industry you can expect nothing then this sort of thing. Just like Halliburton charging 80$ to wash a duffel bag of laundry on cost plus contracts.

    The American people are being sold down the river for crony capitalism. Now were mortgaging our children to continue to pay for it. Where does the insanity end??

    The fact remains, where government meddles, prices skyrocket. Whether that is due to government waste and corruption or that of their crony partners matters little to those of us watching our tax dollars go down the drain. You cannot separate the cronyism/fascism from government meddling unless you're advocating COMPLETE government control...and we know how well that has worked in the past. The point is, when government meddles in business, we see the exact opposite effect from what the central planners claim to be their motivation for meddling. Unless you have magic beans in your pocket, your not going to force businesses to not take advantage of government handouts. Where does the insanity end? It ends when we limit government involvement in markets...just like the Constitution demands.
